These days everything have their online version and so does alarm clock. Online alarm clock is supposed to wake you up at your given time but they do have few major drawbacks which are:
- The sound level of these alarm clocks are capped at the limit of your device’s speaker level.
- Not easily as portable as an alarm clock is supposed to be.
- The device should be active all the time which introduces power issues and device heating problem.
That being said, let’s look at some of its benefits too.
- The obvious one, no need to buy a hardware alarm clock.
- Very high flexibility in choosing your own wake-up tones like custom mp3, radio station or Youtube videos.
So, comparing the drawbacks and benefits we can even conclude that it is always better to own a hardware alarm clock.
However, the aim of this article is to look out on 10 of these online services with their unique features. So, let’s jump onto it.

And the feature that it makes it unique from other service is that it has no other features than a plain alarm clock. Yep, it’s funny but nothing but a truth.

It is perfect for people who just want a wake-up alarm clock with no fancy stuffs.
Onlineclock.net one is more famous for its clock feature. Actually, this site has many other features. It’s got sizes small, medium, large, x-large clocks. It’s got timers, countdowns, stopwatch and round timer. And the feature I like about it is that it offers nice few backgrounds for the clock with relevant sounds.
