Essential Apple User Magazine reviews the Athena

A bedside alarm with a difference

Not everyone wants a bedside clock radio alarm. Some people prefer the good, old-fashioned beep-beep-beep of an alarm clock to get them up in the morning. That's where Groov-e Athena comes in. Available in black or white, it's easy on the eyes on more ways than one; not only is it stylish and well built, its digital display is gentle enough not to disturb your sleep. Both the screen and the downward-shining night light have three levels of brightness, and can also be turned off if you prefer. The reason it's of interest to Apple fans is the inclusion of a Qi charger, so you can charge an iPhone 8, or later, just by placing it on top of the clock. At 5w it won't charge particularly quickly, but that's not much of a problem for a device designed to power up your phone as you sleep.
