Alarm clock radios – and their made-for-iPod descendents – have always held a strongly diametric level of appeal.
For some, a varying pattern of sound waves each morning is a precursor to a missed train, while others are happy to banish the beep and rely on Survivor's Eye of the Tiger to kick-start their day.
If you fall into the latter category, the Pure-Fi Anytime might just be your new favourite toy.
Logitech entered the alarm clock market last year with the impressive Pure-Fi Dream, though its £170 MSRP afforded it limited appeal. The Anytime serves as its smaller, restrained sibling, focusing on waking you up rather than affective acoustics, while still providing much of the well-realised alarm functionality that made the Dream so appealing.
