Could be better

Radio controlled calibration calibrates the time nearly every night (some nights it does not get a signal, but the next night always works), so the time is always right. The battery is solar charged (technically, if it was solar POWERED you would not have any power if there was not enough sunlight). It has 4 daily alarms, but only one has a snooze on it. It also has no countdown timer. It will give you sunrise and sunset times every day of the year, once you enter your time zone and latitude and longitude. Entering the time zone requires you to enter the appropriate city from a list, rather than the actual time zone. It will also tell you what direction you are going using the solar azimuth. This only works if you can see the sun. BOO! A digital compass would do this much more effectively.
