The GrooveNeo iPod alarm clock's big USP is that big display, which is designed to save the user from squinting bleary-eyed across the bed trying to work out if it's ten past 5, or 8.

The "jumbo" display means such squints will be a thing of the past, while the 2.75-inch full-range stereo speakers mean you'll know when it's time to get up.

The GrooveNeo offers the options or waking to AM/FAm radio, music from an iPod or iPhone or a buzzer alarm.

With touch-sensitive buttons, plus a remote control, the device charges iPods while docked, offers snooze and sleep functions and is mains-powered with a battery back-up.

Firebox is offering the GrooveNeo iPod alarm clock now for £49.99.
