Hello,

So I want to start waking up with a light clock instead of a traditional alarm clock. Where as it gradually starts getting light till the correct time. So I'm wondering, what is the difference between theses two Philips wake up light. Does one have more color options? Is it more gradual?

Here are the lights I'm comparing:

They seem to provide the same features for about the same price. The only thing that concerns me is that the Hue White Ambiance says, "Skip your morning coffee and get ready for the day with cool, bright white daylight that helps to energize your body and mind."

You don't want to wake up with cool white light. You want to wake up to warm white light and have it transition slowly to cool white. The idea is to mimic the sun's color. Cool light is energizing, but you want to ease into it in the morning and then ease out of it around sunset.

I'm not sure how the Ambiance works in reality, but I'd want to check that before making a purchase.
