Thousands of different alarm clocks have been introduced since the twentieth century, but none became iconic. This has led to the belief that all alarm clocks have to be the same: boring pieces of dated technology that you wouldn’t ever think twice about.

Things are about to change.

For the past quarter of a century, we have been doing one thing extremely well, waking people up with the loudest alarm clocks on the market. But as society shifts to tossing away traditional alarm clocks in favor of the ones on their phones, we have found a way to innovate them back into the public sphere. We call it Forte.  SCREAMING with modern day features and customizability, Forte is the only alarm clock you will ever need.

You’ve probably already decided that your smartphone is the perfect alarm clock, but modern day smartphones are a prime illustration of jack of all trades, master of none, and you’re only getting a fraction of the full experience. Their function as an all-purpose device is also their main shortfall as an alarm clock for the following reasons:

At Screaming Meanie, we believe a reliable alarm clock should behave like a mission critical device, always on and always available. Forte is bursting with modern day functionalities, including customizable timer settings, a seamless navigation system, and ten easy to remember icons. Not to mention the ear-splitting 100dB alarm. Take a quick look at the full list of features we’ve packed into this beautiful package. 

featuresMost alarm clock manufacturers think they can get away with using a cheap LED screen, but not us. Forte is specially crafted so that it is easy to read day or night. We use a 800 x 600 TFT LCD screen, which offers a sharper image, less energy consumption, and less eye strain. These screens are used by the best manufacturers around the world.

Volume control

Forte has five volume levels, going up to 100dB, which is guaranteed to wake up even the deepest sleeper, as well as those with hearing difficulties. You can regard Forte as your very own, very reliable punctuality coach, who will ensure you never oversleep again. In fact, if you manage to sleep through Forte’s ear-splitting alarm, you're probably deaf. 

remindersWhen Forte finishes screaming at you to wake up, confusion and disorientation is a common reaction. You’ve lost track of the time and day, and worst of all, you may not even remember why your alarm was yelling at you in the first place. Luckily, we’ve equipped Forte with ten essential reminder icons which you can set before you go to sleep, and have ready for you as soon as you wake up. Now you can spend less time wondering what you were meant to be doing, and more time getting on with your day.

Language choiceLanguages selectionForte is designed for everyone, no matter what language you speak. With full support for ten languages, you can be confident that Forte will speak your language. 

BrightnessLayoutWhen it comes to the visual layout of your alarm clock, there is no one size fits all. That’s why Forte gives you the freedom to modify its layout to your heart’s desire. From the information displayed, to your preferred text color, you can fully customize this alarm clock and feel a sense of comfort every time you look at it!

Alarm Countdown

Yes, it happens to the smartest of people! You are supposed to get up at 4 AM for a flight. You accidentally set your alarm clock for 4 PM and sleep right through your flight! To combat this, most people anxiously wake up again and again throughout the night to check that they’ve set the darn alarm clock right. Worry no more! With Forte’s simple yet invaluable alarm countdown feature, you can rest assured that you will always know when your next alarm is going to alert you.

Adjustable StandMost traditional alarm clocks stand on your nightstand in one fixed position without the option of different viewing angles. We designed Forte with an adjustable stand to let you view it from a myriad of different angles, from almost 90 degrees to nearly flat.

Development ProcessWe went through countless iterations of Forte before landing on the one that will be going into your home. Forte is not just an alarm clock—it is a piece of furniture, an extension of your personality, something you should be proud to show off. Thus, our goal was to create an elegant and contemporary design that will complement your existing décor, no matter where you decide to put it.

Who needsThe human mind is like a rubber band. As we age, it becomes less efficient at storing memories. For many of us, life enhancing medications are essential for maintaining a high quality of life, and the active lifestyle we’ve worked so hard for. But taking twelve horse pills just isn’t something we like to think about. Forte’s simple reminder icons are here to save the day! Now you can remember to do all your favorite things in life, such as speed dating, salsa dancing and bingo, without the hassle of remembering those giant undesirable pills. 

Heavy SleepersBeing a heavy sleeper can be a curse, and early appointments can be daunting when you just know you’re going to sleep through that alarm. But believe me, with the ability to set Forte’s alarm to 100 dB, you won’t have to worry about sleeping through this one.

Busy parentsBusy parents work hard for their families, and we’ve all relied on our phones for alerts and important reminders. But smartphones are also filled with addictive games and are prone to be stolen (and sometimes hidden) by those crafty little kids. Unlike a smartphone, your Forte is safe from prying hands. You will never accidentally forget to charge it. You won’t leave it in the car. Forte is loud enough to be heard wherever you are in the house, making it a reliable fortress for your important alerts.

studentsBalancing school, work, and social life can be nearly impossible. And, after a long night out partying, it can be challenging to wake up for early morning classes. Chuck a Forte near your bed and let it slap you back into consciousness with its 100 dB scream.
