Areaware Alarm Dock Brings 70s-Chic Clock Designs Back

If you're trying to humble yourself from all the amazing apps found on your iPhone, why not turn your handy do-it-all into a retro looking clock with this Areaware Alarm Dock?

The all-wooden design of the dock recalls the classic design commonly seen in movies from the 70s. Those looking for a piece of nostalgia in the modern age should definitely pick up one of these chic clock docks. Simply attach your iPhone horizontally to the dock and let the iPhone clock app by Areaware take over. The dock also allows users to plug in a charger cable into their iPhone, so you won't have to worry about drying up your battery while tracking time.

You can purchase your own Areaware Alarm Dock over at the Areaware website for $39.50.
