How to set the EXACT time for the alarm for this excellent little clock
on November 30, 2012
This is a quite accurate, lightweight and compact alarm clock, fine for travel and nice looking in red with the black dial face.
The hands are luminous, battery life is good, the battery is included, it ships for free and the price is fair.
However, some have said that the alarm is hard to set for the exact time, that you can only approximate it , etc.
This is not true. Let me explain the correct method to do this, as I had already commented on in another review.
One should not let that incorrect assumption prevent you from buying this fine little alarm clock:
To set the "exact" time for the alarm: FIRST set the TIME hands (NOT the alarm hand) clock-wise to the time you want the alarm to go off, e.g., 6:20 AM. Then turn ON the alarm.
Now rotate the ALARM setting hand counter-clockwise JUST UNTIL IT CLICKS ON (the alarm goes off, buzzes, etc.). Turn off the alarm.
Leave the ALARM HAND set at that setting.
Now re-set the TIME HANDS(clockwise) to the correct time.
The next time you turn on the alarm to wake you up, the alarm will be set to go off at that exact time you chose.
This method works with all analog alarm clocks.
