Review: Lumie Bodyclock Starter

We adore the Lumie Bodyclock Iris 500 we reviewed at Christmas, but when he's getting up at ridiculous o'clock for work Steve sleeps on the sofa bed so when we were asked to review the starter version in the Bodyclock range, we jumped at the chance.


The Lumie Bodyclock was the first of the very popular dawn simulator wake-up lights which wake you up gradually by increasing the levels of natural light in the room.  No more harsh alarm call wake-ups!  A 30-minute sunrise wakes you up naturally, while a 30-minute fading sunset helps you to wind down for bed.  The Bodyclock also boosts a dimmable light for use as a bedside light.  We love the sunray effect of the light and the simple to use settings.


The changing light gives your body the signal that levels of the sleep hormone melatonin should be reduced, and the get up and go hormones like cortisol should be increased.  Studies show that wake-up lights like the Lumie Bodyclock Starter can help to regulate the sleep cycle, boosting mood, energy and productivity.  It is much-recommended by sufferers of the debilitating illness SAD as a way to combat symptoms.  Steve has definitely found it helpful for gentler wake-ups, and relaxing evenings.  At an RRP of £59.95, the Lumie Bodyclock Starter is well worth the money

  1. Definitely an early bird! I only get about 4-5 hours sleep and get up at about 4.30am every day due to my medication running out (painkillers) on the plus side I get to see beautiful sunrises or Summer mornings, sit listening to birdsong and having a very peaceful first coffee of the day.

  22. I've always been a night owl. Even when I used to get up for work at 5 AM, I was still watching TV at 12-1 AM. :) My body doesn't sleep if I go to bed early, so if I toss and turn for a few hours I am more tired than if I get 3-4 hours straight sleep. Always been the same for some reason, but it works well so I can't complain.
