I totally recommend this clock to buy
This clock is really cute and working well.
That is what I was looking for.
I love it.
This travel alarm clock is so compact and so multi-functtional that my husband and I tossed our bedside alarm clocks and ordered two more of these awesome clocks to use as our regular alarms!
The Everything Clock
This is the perfect clock. It has everything that youd want in a clock. Theres only one minor drawback. If youre hard of hearing, you wont hear the beep alarm. My wife hears it just fine. I was going to return the clock, but I like is so much, I decided to just let my wife wake me after she hears the alarm. I purchased this clock for travel and it will be used a lot.
This travel clock is ideal for my travel needs. I travel to different time zones which makes the TZ feature absolutely essential. It has all of the additional features that I need as well. I look forward to using it for a long time. It replaces an item that is not quite satisfactory.
Excellent quality and the atomic set is a plus. For us older guys we need the large display and the front sets are perfect
Attractive, Efficient, Accurate
The atomic clock sits on my nightstand. Its dim amber nightlight shows time without interrupting sleep.
Just what I wanted.
My partner and I have different schedules. I use a fitness vibration alarm to wake me up and I use the Sharper Image alarm clock as my backup. The clock face light also allows me to check the time should I wake up during the night without disturbing my partner and without an annoying constant glow from the clock. Excellent functional styling. Perfect.
These clocks are fabulous for travel and for regular use. We have one of these clocks on each nightstand in our northern home and our southern home.
Just As Advertised
If you want a clock which provides a large readable display, this one is for you. The display provides a bright, readable display at night, also. Very good product!
Simple, but large
A bit large for travel, but I like the simple usage and bright night light.
Travel Atomic Alarm Clock
These 3 additional travel atomic alarm clocks were added to the 1st one I ordered because I liked it so much. Im keeping another one for myself and giving two of these as gifts. Nice styling, easy-to-read numbers, and easy to set.
Might even order two more for extra gifts.
Not like my old one!
I wanted a smallish, silver alarm clock, like my first Sharper Image. This was the only one I could find. Its a little bigger, more difficult to handle and black.
great for home or travel
Very nice clock...solidly built....very large easy to read display...instruction sheet not written very well, took a while to figure it all out, overall a good product.
Best travel clock ever
I think I have finally found the perfect travel clock. The numbers are large. The setting is easy. The auto night light feature is great. I am on my first trip with this clock and when I return home I will be ordering a second one for my wife. Great product.
I have several travel clocks but wanted one that you can see in the dark without pressing a button. This one has that feature. It comes in a nice travel pouch and should be relatively easy to pack without taking up a lot of space; either in the suitcase or wherever one chooses to place it at their destination. I have not had the chance to travel with it yet, so I cannot attest to the battery life. It is very easy to set all the functions. I am happy with this purchase.
I love this clock. It is lightweight and works fine. I am using this clock at home, in the bedroom, but my original plan for buying it is to use it when I am traveling.
Great small bedside clock
Love this clock! Time shown is in big numbers so I can see it during the night. However,it would be helpful to have a LOW BEAM on light bar so I coukd see the time in the dark with out having to press the light-bar on top of clock during the day, The light would be on OFF position.
Accurate. Easy to operate. Sets to all time zones automatically. Excellent alarm clock, best Ive found...
Perfect Size for Travel
I travel extensively...oftentimes phone dont work in places where I go--but great to have this clock in my bag traipsing around
Travel alarm clock
Great size for travel and lightweight.
Great clock not just for travel
Very easy to use. Once I set the correct time zone, the clock synched up with the correct time within a couple of minutes. Ive compared the time with a larger atomic wall clock that Ive had and the times match perfectly.
Just what I wanted!
My husband needs a clock in front of him at all times...just because. Anyway, this clock was just what the doctor ordered! He likes things with simple, clean lines and easy to use. This little clock fits the bill perfectly!
Knocked off one star because the DST cannot be turned off. I had to compensate by changing the time zone. Also, the instructions did not state how to change the time zone, though it was "intuitively obvious" once the settings button was pushed (it is the first function).
Just perfect in every way.
Dont be concerned when you get your clock that it doesnt sync immediately to the Atomic Clock. I manually set mine and then the next day I noticed that the syncing was complete. Pushing the button on the top gives you snooze if you have the alarm set, but it also temporarily turns on a night light so can see the time. If its possible to be "excited" by a travel alarm, this is one to be excited about.
I needed a clock with seconds display and temperature to replace one that broke. This one had large display and all the functions that I needed. It would have been better if display lit up brighter and if it could have been tilted back a little more than the stationary 90 degrees. A little hard to see when clock is at weist height, looking down at it.
Love this clock. Very easy to use.
Our last alarm clock from Sharper Image lasted 10 years and we loved it. The new product is more compact and we were amazed that the controls were identical --- took less than 5 minutes to program. We also like the atomic clock setting.
Good little clock
Initially confusing about setup but within24 hrs it set itself automatically... Nice easy alarm... Convenient nite light. Good functional clock.
Really like this clock/alarm
Would like alarm to be louder.
Large numbers are easy to read
Backlighting is just right
Best travel alarm clock ever!
Great alarm clock!
Perfect Alarm Clock
Ive had a number of alarm clocks that were too bright, too big, or too loud, so I was pleased to find just what I was looking for with this alarm clock. Some reviewers didnt like the weight, but I think it is just right for an alarm clock that wont get knocked over, or will survive a crash if it does get knocked off my nightstand.
Alram Clock for Christmas
Home alarm on night stand
Always quality products from Sharper IM
Very nice and easy to use-just a little larger that what I had before. I will try to travel with it
easy to set. Replaced a complicated one. Quite a relief.
Time and Temp Anywhere
Does the job perfectly. I got it to replace a similar device that died after 15+ years. The temperature function is helpful when checking into a hotel room
to check the temp for a comfortable night.
Travel Alarm Clock
I really like this atomic alarm clock. It is a must have for anyone who travels. I really like the temperature degree feature offered with this clock. The only thing I would change is the design of the night display option. If you want the background displayed during the night without pressing the display button, you need to flip a switch in the back behind the battery cover which means you need to leave the battery cover off to use this feature or take it off and put it back on each time. Other than that, this is a great product.
Nice but not for travel
I like this clock and found it easy to set up. I wanted the temp and it does that nicely. I wanted the ability to have backlit at night w/o constant light and it does that too. But it is way too large and heavy for my international travel (and it only has 4 time zones - it is a big world out there)So, nice clock for desk or bedside that should not be billed as travel.
It works well for me!
Overall, very pleased!
I really like this clock. I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5 because you have to turn off the lite by taking off the battery cover. Since I have it in a drawer during the day the auto shut off will not work and the battery will drain. It is very easy to see at night without being too bright and the controls are intuitive and easy to setup and change alarm times.
so far so good
we have used the travel alarm clock 10 days only
and it worked fine but we dont have long term
experience like battery life etc.
Great travel clock
This may be the ideal travel alarm clock: large display, easy to set and back light that can be set to automatically switch on when the ambient light dims. The clock set automatically by radio signal from the atomic clock but I needed to manually adjust the time zone. I havent tested the alarm yet.
Its a little larger than Id like in a travel clock. It also feels like it might be cheaply constructed but time will tell. I also dont know what the battery life will be like with the nightlight turned on so I will need to keep a spare set of AA batteries when I travel.
I can count on it to give me correct information that I can easily see.
Reliable and convenient
I was looking for a reliable and compact travel alarm to use on my weekly business travels. This item met my needs and I have been very pleased with my purchase.
easy to use day or night!
change the time I get up in the morning frequently and the ease of setting alarm day to day is great. Temperature on clock is very helpful as well.
Great alarm clock
I dont see any issues with the alarm clock so far. Its easy to use and quickly synced the time.
Best feature, can see time in total darkness without hurting your eyes, thanks to programmable low intesity display.
Best travel clock
Numbers are big, can see at night, travels well,surable, attractive, love everything about it.
Easy to use
I purchased this for use in a guest bedroom. I agree with other reviews that it is bulky for travel but I dont plan to travel with it. I was most interested in the temperature feature (to tell if the vents need to be opened)and the glow in the dark so guests can read the time. The larger size makes it easy to read from across the room.
Outstanding clock, great features
This is one of the best battery-powered alarm clocks Ive ever owned. Because of its large, easy-to-read visual display, I no longer have to fumble with my glasses to check the time when I wake up at night. A simple tap turns the light on briefly so you can check the time. The display has plenty of useful information - the time, the time the alarm is scheduled to go off, date, time zone, even the temperature. Its relatively easy to set up and use, and the clock changes automatically when Daylight Savings Time begins and ends, which came in handy this past weekend. All controls are on the outside of the clock, so no need to remove the battery door to change settings, as is the case with many poorly designed alarm clocks. The only criticisms I have are that this is a little large for travel. Also, the instructions that came with the clock are printed in a microscopic font. Theres no reason that the directions and accompanying illustrations cant be printed in a size that doesnt require a magnifying glass. H
It Reqlly Works
I finally found an atomic clock that is easy to use, gives correct time and, above all, can be read easily in the dark without pushing any button. It is small and can easily fit in a carry-on bag.
Atomic Travel Alarm Clock
I had the previous model of this clock. After many years of use, it broke in my suitcase (my fault). I was so pleased to find that I could still get this Sharper Image product after the retail stores closed. I also use at home to ensure my clocks are set at correct time. Best clock. Love it.
A great battery alarm clock
Overall, This is a great battery alarm clock. Almost a perfect 5/5 stars.I use it for both home and travel. Highly recommended.
Pros: Easy controls; nice orange-glow backlight; excellent auto-backlight (it can be turned off); the alarm beep starts low and gets louder and more frequent; auto time-setting works well.
Possible Cons: Somewhat expensive; Snooze button not recessed, might be too easy to continually pushed in while in a suitcase. Some people might think its too large for a travel alarm clock(I dont)
Great Travel and Bedside Clock
This product is used mainly as a bedside/alarm clock but is great for travel because of its size and font size.
Great for travel or home
I use this clock in my bathroom on my sink. It is the perfect size and has all of the functions that I could ask for. Plus it resets itself for daylight savings time and keeps time by gps.
Greatest clock ever!!
This clock is easy to use and once the time zone is entered and the clock is set, there is no longer a need to worry about power outages, etc. Also, the back light helps to see the time, date, temperature, etc. at all times.
a solid performer
I havent changed time zones or daylight savings yet, so Im not sure how well the satellite setting works.
Great little alarm clock.
A dependable and accurate clock are important to me. This clock meets my requirements.
Travel Alarm Clock - WWVB
I like the size and compactness. screen could be sharper and better in day vision. orange light works well. Only connects to WWVB for me after 12am to 6am
I was looking for a compact alarm clock that was durable, nice looking and easy to use. So far, this clock is great. Its the perfect size for next to my bed, the lighting is great (you can have a dim light or no light at all, but if you press the light/snooze button, a light will come on so you can see the time in the middle of the night). Still getting used to it, but so far there is nothing negative to say about this clock.
This travel alarm clock is perfect
The size is just right and convenient for travel.
Great Travel Clock
Weve had several different styles and manufactures of travel clocks in the past but the Sharper Image Travel Clock is by far the best weve had to date. We love the large clear display and the alarm is loud enough even to wake-up my wife. We use the clock as a bed side clock as well. The low light back lighting works great for the checking the time early in the morning.
I appreciate the display of all the important data, time,temperature,day,date,a reasonable loud alarm, and a good accurate snooze setting.
A Great travel clock
The nicest design and use travel clock I have found. I bought one as a gift and now I am going to buy one for myself!
Finally found what we were looking for!
A very reliable, compact clock to have at any time.
I bought this clock for travel, only, but what I got was a fine time piece. Its so precise, Im in awe and have replaced the clock I had on my end table with this one. I will pack it up and take it with me when I travel. Didnt know I was going to like it this much.
Great travel clock
I have a thing about these self-setting clocks and this one has met or exceeded all expectations. I got it a few days before Daylight Savings Time and sure enough, when I woke up the next morning, it had the correct, new time on it. I gave one to a friend and she loves it, too.
I was thinking Id use it just for travel, but with our power going out every now and then, Im keeping it on my bedside table as a back up. I love the fact the backlight doesnt come on until it senses its needed. I have to switch the backlight on and off on my other travel clock, which I dont always remember to do.
The one thing Id like to see different is that its pretty bulky - not so bad I cant tuck it into my suitcase, but a bit bulkier than Id like. I havent had it long enough to comment on the battery life.
Finally a usable/easy alarm clock!
I was having a hard time finding a travel/home alarm clock that was easy to use and had no knobs to twist. My hands are arthritic and twisting knobs is difficult. No covers to remove to set time/alarm.
I like this clock. I use it as my almost daily alarm clock and its perfect. So cute and lightweight for travelling as well.
This clock is fully featured and extremely well designed compared to its competition. Im not sure why some reviewers have stated that it is too big for travel. Although it is larger than some other travel clocks, it easily fits in a purse, travel bag or suitcase. The larger display is a plus. The instructions are vague to select the language for the day of the week display. Select GB(Great Britain)for English. It is clearly superior to any other travel clock I have seen.
I am 67 years old and have had dozens of travel alarm clocks over the years. This clock is by far the best one I have ever had. As a matter of fact I bought 2 just in case I lose one.
Does what expected in way I want
For a while I wanted another battery operated large number clock that took the time from the atomic clock signal. I can see it clearly while working or when others come in my office for a meeting, it always has the right time, and without wires I can place it on my desk in my line of sight between my chair and visitors. In travels, it is more visible and reliable than hotel clocks or friends guest rooms. It does what I want.
Anyone wanting to minimize size or weight for travel can clearly see from dimensions and weight that it might not fit that need, and in a suitcase you cant shut off the buttons. But these are unrelated and irrelevant to why I bought this clock. I cant comment on battery drain, durability or other factors since Ive only had it a month or so.
But it is a welcome product that serves an important need not met by other portable clocks Ive tried.
Great nightstand clock. Lights in dark and goes off after 5 seconds. Love that its atomic so you never have to reset it even during daylight saving time. Cant get days of week out of French to English, so Im learning them in French! (Im bilingual now.)
We plan to use the clock when traveling. Kept close, it is easy to get the time in the dark.
more contrast between time & background
Not enough contrast between time, date, etc. and background so have to be up close to see.
Travel clock ?
It is a very nice alarm clock, but not small enough for travel. If they could reduce the size by one third the clock would be great.
Easy to read at night with the back light. Really easy controls. Most clocks like this are require opening the back to set the alarm. Everything is clear, easy and accessible.
Great Travel Alarm with Large Numbers!
We bought this for travel, but have used it at home! Its an excellent time keeper, with large numbers and a momentary light for "during the night" reading. The size and weight are excellent for travel. I like that it keeps time with nightly checks of the Atomic Clock in Boulder, CO.
Finally, easy to set
Finally a clock that is easy for a senior to set, especially the alarm feature, also easy to read at night without glasses. I have tried others with international features, but find the alarm feature impossible to set!! Good job!!
Good Travel Clock
My wife and I travel a lot, usually with one international trip each year. I wanted a travel clock that would set itself domestically, but that I could manually set when out of the country. I also wanted it to be small and light-weight. This one meets all my conditions. Its a good buy.
very easy to set and read.
Easy to set and read. Can turn the back light off to save power. Needs a hard case for travel and storage.
I am very satisfied with my purchase...
Havent dropped it yet so i dont know how sturdy it is. I wish the outside edge was rubberized (like a cell phone case) to take the shock of dropping it because i know it will get dropped.
Great for travel. I like option of night light or not. Also the auto setting by Atomic Clock is nice. Took a minute to determine how to set the correct time zone; a specific labeled button for this purpose would be a nice addition. Overall is a very nice clock
Compact and perfect for packing
it is the perfect size, for the use in a rig that doesnt have much room,to place anything big. & the numbers are big & bright. & the alarm sound is loud.So it works great for this Truck Driver. I would buy another one, for upstairs bedroom, too. Great Alarm Clock
Great size and shape
I really like it
Performed exactly as advertised.
Easy to read
Due to the frequency of power failures in my local area, I prefer to rely on a battery powered alarm clock. This replaced another brand Ive used for years that finally wore out. I love the large display and how much information it provides. However, the instructions were clearly not written or proofread in the U.S. as they were difficult to follow at times. I finally figured it out and it works fine.
Accurate, Easy to Use, Compact
Nice features with atomic clock and provides temperature of room, especially helpful for the traveler.
Best travel alarm I could find
I bought this as a nightstand clock to replace a small Radio Shack clock when its light stopped functioning. I searched the internet for a replacement but couldnt find one that had all the features the RS had, including the radio control clock, the nightlight and the clock light, and that had an easy to read display. The Sharper Image clock is much more larger and more attractive than the RS clock it replaces. It therefore looks nicer in the bedroom setting and is easier to use. Simply tapping the hard to miss button on the top of the clock turns on the light for a few seconds without the risk on knocking it off the table in the middle of the night. The light, by the way, is a soft orange that wont blind you in the dark. While I was initially resistant to spending so much on a little clock, Im glad I did. I know I wouldnt have be happy with a clock less substantial, attractive or easy to use.
The best travel alarm clock
I looked at so many travel alarm clocks and this one was perfect. As a flight attendant, travel alarms and travel gadgets are important to me. The display on this clock is big and when you press the snooze button, the backlight comes on at night for easy viewing. I love how you know the alarm is set because the lever on the bottom, when pushed, appears red. Its sturdy. I also like how displays temperature.
Really like this clock
Bought this as a gift for my college aged kid. Like it so much Ill be buying one for myself.
Quality at an affordable price
The clock is easy to set up and use. It seems durable and of higher quality than most travel alarm clocks. I would buy this again or it would make a great gift.
using this on our nightstand. Nice, compact. No bright lights to disturb sleep. Instructions were quite dificult to understand
I love this clock!
Set up very quickly with the atomic clock.
Im planning to order a second one!
Best travel alarm Ive ever had
Excellent back light, subtle but sufficient for nighttime viewing.
Easy set up
Light weight, but stable on nightstand
Great size, easy to see, will get a 2nd
Great for travel
Wouold lbuy algain...
In RV and traveling
sharp looking and solid. good for travel.
Pretty good, but not perfect
There are only two downsides to this product.
First, its heavy. That might not be fair, because this is obviously a very sturdy product, and the only way to make it lighter would be to make it flimsier. Still, for traveling, each ounce or gram counts.
The second downside is that the light to switch on the night lighting is in the battery compartment - I can see no good reason for this design.
Still, this is a great product, and I would recommend it.
Just what I needed.
Small enough to travel with, bright and bold to read..
Great Little Clock
This clock keeps perfect time, the alarm is easy to set, it illuminates with a simple push and it gets me up in the morning. What else does one need in an alarm clock? And if this clock lasts as long as the last clock I got from Sharper Image, I wont be writing another clock review for a long time.
LOVE this Travel Clock
I wanted a compact Atomic clock with the Amber backlight. The amber light was really important to me, lots of searching to find this. I wanted the option to keep the light on at night and I finally found it! The amber backlight switch is under the battery cover. Its a real tiny switch. Now when I wake up, in the middle of the night, I can just glance at the time without moving. This clock is not flimsy, its well made. I use in my bedroom daily, dont travel much. I like the size too. Cant tell you about the battery life because I havent had it long enough to tell. Would make a great gift for anyone. Thank You Sharper Image for offering this item!
Exactly what I was looking for
This product suits all my requirements for a compact atomic travel alarm with temperature. Especially wanted a push button light for middle of the night reading. Also has a night light option. Have tried 2 other products but neither compare with this clock. Definitely the best one out there. Hope it lasts a long time.
Hard to come by such perfection.
Years ago when my atomic clock broke I thought it would be easy to replace--not so. I looked for years and tried three different clocks, none of which were nearly as good. They were too large or too small with difficult controls. What I love about this clock:
1) Automatic settings for time (accurate just select your location).
2) Easy controls
3) Easy to read with multiple information, including time, month, date, day of the week and room temperature.
4) Ascending alarm that doesnt begin with a loud blast.
5) Easy to read display with an easy temporary light for night viewing; just touch the top and it lights in a nice orange for a few seconds. The light is gentle on eyes, unlike the light on my smart phone in the middle of the night.
6) it stands up and is always in clock mode, unlike my iPhone.
Easy to set and easy to read
Packs nice into my suitcase -- comes with drawstring sack to protect it. Easy to read at night without glasses. Once set, easy to change the time zone -- a boon for those who travel all over the US. The thermometer is a plus -- you know those times when hotel room thermostat is set on 65, yet its 75 in your room (or vice-versa) -- gives you more leverage when dealing with maintenance.
Best travel alarm yet!
The backlight is outstanding for night viewing. Not too bright. Perfect.
I would buy this product again
Likethe sonic feature so I know the time is correct at all times, easy to access light when needed, easy to set. It would be advantageous for travel if it were a bit slimmer in size.
Easy to use, clear and reliable
Only issue is that it is a little heavy. Took it to Europe from USA and had total confidence that the time was correct and the alarm would wake me when needed, Display is perfect.
great travel clock
great little travel clock - great size, large display and stays lite at night, and radio set time
Excellent travel item
Great compact travel clock! Easy to set alarm with very accurate time keeping. Controls are very user friendly.
A great way to wake up!
Easy to use, great looking,good way to wake up.
I keep this clock in the bathroom since getting ready on time is important to me. The large digits help me to easily check the time from different angles, even from quite far away.
This clock adjusted to the atomic time clock with little delay. Settings were easy to execute.
Easily read time - all night long
Large numbers on this clock remain lit all night long. Battery powered for flexible use, including travel. Size of the display is perfect for use next to bed. No need to rely on eyeglasses or contact lenses. Syncs throughout day with government time broadcasts. Measures current temperature. Best feature, however, is that the numbers are visible all night long; virtually impossible to find from any other retailer.
Good Solid Alarm Clock
Its a good alarm clock, great for the home or office, but bigger and heavier than I would have expected for a travel alarm. Solid build and nice looking design. Good for everyday use, at least so far...
Alarm clock for traveling
Night light is just what I needed and updates to different time zones.
Great for travel
Best one yet for me
Best use for me is to calibrate an old but very collectible mechanical watch, as well as other timers that are in the house. That the clock is battery operated makes it easy to carry it from one device---e.g. microwave oven---to another resetting them after a power failure.
Very user friendly
I bought this for my wife to replace her old broken alarm clock. this clock is very easy to set the alarm and the clock is perfectly accurate. The only draw back is shed like a prettier color than black.
I would recommend this product
Use clock at home and take with me when I frequently travel
good product cost and benefit
Very easy to use, good design and good light
The perfect bedside clock
Ive been wanting a nightstand clock with large numbers and back lighting so I could read it during the night, as I wake frequently and want to know the time. This is perfect for my needs, with no extra frills (or cost).
If you need a basic clock with alarm, I would recommend this travel alarm.
Exactly as described !
Excellent small clock.
It is very difficult to set, no instructions came with mine. Mine says 13:00 instead of 1:00, for example, and there is no way I can find how to change it. It has also been impossible to change the setting from French for the days of the week--and others seems to have the same complaint.
Not just a travel clock
I use it daily. So easy to change alarm time settings. All necessary information is on one easy to read display. Love it!
Travel Alarm Clock
We have purchased several travel alarm clocks and discarded all of them for one reason or another. Even ones we purchased based on customer reviews. Never having thought to look at Sharper Image, I happened across this one accidentally. It has turned out to be the best and we definitely are keeping it. Controls are so simple and the radio controlled feature is a bonus.
Just what I was looking for
It has a night light function that is very useful. I travel all the time and was looking for a travel clock that I could use that was not too bright or too dim. This clock is perfect. It changes time zones when I do. It is great.
Love this clock
I looked for a while for an alarm clock that was easy to read, that allowed me to set the time while at the same time updating itself. I had a clock that would update - but then would be off by about 10 minutes after a short time.
This clock has a wonderful lighting system, good alarm, and I like the straighforward system for setting everything (rather than having to hit all sorts of buttons in strange configurations)
Excellent Travel Clock
Used as travel alarm but also good for backup alarm
good so far
Easy to read, easy to set.
The auto set doesnt work. Signal strength looks ok, but several attempts the clock wouldnt set itself. Did manual setting.
This clock has everything you need in a travel alarm. It stays in-sync with the atomic clock so you dont even have to find the time to set it. It has large numbers and a big readout making it easy to read, which is a problem when you are older and your eyesight isnt the best. Battery time is real good too. The bottom line is I like this travel alarm so much I would buy it for a gift without a second thought!
This is probably the best alarm clock I have owned. I need small, compact, easy to read with all of the symbols I want to see and this clock fits the bill. It is easy to set up without instructions. I might get a second one since the quality Is hard to find in alarm clocks and this one has it all.
My new bedside companion
Attractive for any decor. Night light is helpful. Easy, concise directions for use. Love it!
Easy to Read at a Distance Clock
Once its set up...easy to read at a distance...just getting the knack of it...
Purchased this alarm clock for my husband as he travels a lot and also purchased one for myself. It does come with a velvet cover for traveling and is light weight. Love love the atomic clock, color display and seems to be very well build. Happy with my purchase! Thank you Sharper Image!!
Travel alarm clock
I have not actually taken this clock on my trip yet but i will be shortly. I tried it out and it seems to be a decent clock. Not sure if the alarm is loud enough but i think so. The functions seem easy to use and clear. Love the big clock face and that it lights up nicely. I would have given it 5 stars but i havent used it on my trip yet. The size is perfect.
My wife loves it!
My wife loves it - its easy to use, easy to set up, easy to read and the design is acceptable!
1) good product.
2) would be nice if it can be wall hanged.
Best I have ever owned
I NEEDED A GOOD ALARM WITH SEVERAL FEATURES. I USE IT WHEN I TRAVEL AND FOUND THAT IT IS QUITE DEPENDABLE.
Wonderful Clock - not just for travel
This is a really nice clock. Perfectly accurate. And, not just for travel. I use this as my permanent night stand clock. I also have one for my office desk.
Backlighted all Night
It is large for travel use.
I chose it because it could be backlit all night. That way I would not have to wake up enough to push some button on the clock to see what the time was.
Best Travel Clock I Have Ever Owned
Have owned dozens of travel alarm clocks and this is hands down the best. Updates using atomic clock so it is dead accurate. Easy to see time at night with night glow feature. Super easy to set the alarm. The atomic clock feature updates easily. But note, the atomic clock feature will only work in the continental US although you can use the clock anywhere.
Great for Travelers
I bought this travel alarm clock for my husband as a bedside clock ( no cords) but he also throws it in his suitcase when he travels to see family. Its convenient and portable. Great gift!
Liked the first one, bought a second one
Love the atomic clock and auto setting of time zones features. Never have to worry about having the correct time anywhere I travel. Bought it for travel but bought a second for home use for my wife when she saw how simple it was to set up and use. Have been looking for a clock of this nature for some time. Was initially concerned about the price but satisfied with the quality when it arrived. Had it for four months, no problems so far.
Travel Alarm Clock is great buy
Has an alarm that really will wake you up. I had a similar electronic clock with lots of features but the alarm was useless. This IS an ALARM clock.
Wish it could be wall hanged.
Small, easy to read.
Simple to set
The color of the light is very good at night. Numbers are easy to re3ad for older people.
I would definitely buy this product agai
Works well at home and away from home.Very compact and travels well.
Just what I wanted!
Have not traveled with this yet but it passed my test at home with flying colors. Alarm is loud enough and snooze works nicely. Light is good.
nice little nightstand clock
This is a great clock for your nightstand. It is compact and wont take up too much room. The directions were a little hard to understand but it works great and keeps very accurate time. It is not bright at night and wont disturb sleep.
Great small clock
Unlike many of its competitors, this clock has a display that is visible in the dark without pressing a button. It is solidly built. I havent had it long enough to assess battery life.
great little clock
great little clock
Well worth the price
This travel alarm has many improvements over previously available travel alarms. It even tells the temperature and the day of the week. The instructions are easy to follow. I had no problem getting it set up. Ordering from the website was very easy. The economy shipping option got it to my P O Box in record time.
Perfect for Me
I placed this clock in my office so that I can see it. The size is perfect with large numbers. I use this to make sure meetings start and end on time. It sits between plants and pictures. Perfect for me!
Great Travel Clock
Great clock for travel. I love the backlighting, just the right brightness so it doesnt disturb you while sleeping.
So far, great travel clock.
Compared to the other "atomic" clocks that I have, this appears to be a great one. The only problem that I have is that I would like the alarm to be louder, or some means to make it louder. e.g., two levels of sound.
High quality product
I like the clock very much. It looks and feels high quality. It works very well.
I usually use a travel alarm for my bedside, as I like a small footprint on the table. This was a little bigger than expected/hoped (I saw this in other reviews), but this makes it easy to read. And the backlit-ON option is exactly what I love about it. It is rugged, with clean lines, and has all the data you could want on an easy-to-read face. I love this clock!
Used as alarm clock. Loved it until I wanted to change to Day Lights Saving Time. Your supposed to be able to push the button and hold it for a few seconds until the time starts flashing. This worked the first time I set the clock. Not the second time. It just would not start flashing. I worked with it for about 15 minutes trying the controls over and over and finally got it to work. I have sent a message to SI and am hoping for an answer.
Take the time
This clock cost more than I had planned to spend, but has all of the features I wanted (e.g., temperature). It was confusing to set up initially, but it is now easy to use, unobtrusive and feels sturdy.
nice clock just not loud
I bought this travel alarm for my uncle, but when I got it I realized that the alarm will in no way be loud enough for him. I didnt see one review about this being quite and thought that with two AA batteries it must be decent but no. However my wife loves this little thing so now it is on our night stand
A great product
When im not traveling, it sits on the table next to my recliner...
There is a lot of useful information packed into this little clock. Once we got the settings figured out, it proved to be a practical purchase; very good for the price.
Travel Alarm Clock
Was bought for Christmas gift so we have not actually used it yet. I was very pleased with the looks and the quick delivery time. The directions seemed easy enough so I am excited and anxious to try it out on our first trip to see if it does the job. This will eliminate us having to remember to place a request for a wake up call.
This is an excellent product
I bought this product so that when we travel, we are able to depend on this clock rather than the ones that never work in the hotel rooms.
Perfect at night......not too bright!
Its a perfect size for my nightstand, doesnt take a lot of room. The light that it emits is perfect for seeing time in the dark, but its not blinding.
Lots of Extras!
The clock is great. I wanted a thermometer, and a view of the alarm time, as well as a clock that is easy to read. I got those, along with an atomic clock that will re-set itself as I travel, with a day and date designation. But I gave the clock four stars because I am not fond of the night light, although it is dim, that stays on all night. I do understand that could be a plus for other people. The instructions also did not address how to change the time zone. My clock did set correctly, but it set for Pacific time, and I am in Central Time. It took some playing around with the time set-up to be able to change the time zone.
Best Ive ever had
Took some trial and error to set up. (GP means english language not the time zone.). Didnt get the radio control until nighttime. But its a great design.
This seems to be a great product. Its easy to read and includes a lot of neat features including indoor temp. It took several days for the clock to find the radio signal to set accurately and it does not seem to be able to utilize time zones outside the lower 48 states. I am not sure how I would use it overseas or in Hawaii. It seems a bit too big and heavy for what I would call a travel clock.
GREAT TRAVEL ALARM
Needed a small alarm clock other than a phone unit. This one has atomic clock and temperature reading, as well as gentle increasing in volume beeps for wake-ups. Not real high tech, but fits the bill for what we needed.
Travel Alarm Clock
Easy to use
Love this clock!
This is the perfect travel alarm clock. It sets itself, has a soft backlight that you can turn on or off, and is small and lightweight. I absolutely love it.
Perfect for home/travel
Love the amber back light which can be switched to stay on
Travel Alarm Clock
I like the clock in general. The Atomic clock feature only corrects at night so at first I though something was wrong with it. But that is how it functions. I mounted mine with HD Velcro to the side of my 3D wood bed so all i have to do is reach up to see the clock at night without a light on 24/7 in the area.
I would like to have seen a Sharper digital display personally for the price, but it is Okay.
Almost the right one
The only thing I really dislike is the snooze turns off after only 5 times, easy to go back to sleep.
Very simple design.
Finally, an atomic-set clock that is simple and strait forward. My wife loves being able to tell what time it is without having to push a button. This clock is simply outstanding!
I love the features on this alarm clock.
Easy to use and set up. IM hard of hearing and can still hear the alarm across the room.
This does just what it advertises. Locks onto satellite and "hacks" the clock to the second--best reception seems to be at night, as the instructions caution. No backlight unless you want it--just push button on top. Light goes out in about 5 seconds. Easy to set time/date etc if you have to. Exactly what I wanted this clock to do!
Solid Clock, but not too heavy
I like this clock because its solid, not cheap-feeling and flimsy like every other travel alarm clock I encountered while shopping.
Great little clock
We will use this clock exclusively for travel. Its compact design makes it ideal for that purpose.
I bought more than one of these clocks to use in different rooms and theyre just perfect, very easy to read, day or night. Ive had the batteries in them for 4 months and theyre still going strong. This clock is perfect for a desk or bedside table, or anywhere you want accurate time. Im planning to buy more.
"Be slow to judge."
I depend on this clock not to let me oversleep. Upon first examinination, it appeared to be too complicated, for I wanted something simple to use. However, I soon came to realize how uncomplicated it is and grew to love it in a short time.
Perfect for travel
Love this travel clock. I like knowing the exact time and the temperature is a bonus. Have had a similar clock before and when it finally went kaput I knew I needed another. Great product---I bought two!
Exactly what I was looking for
This product suits all my requirements for a compact atomic travel alarm with temperature. Especially wanted a push button light for middle of the night reading. Also has a night light option. Have tried 2 other products but neither compare with this clock. My only suggestion for improvement would be to add more space between the date and temperature. Its a little crowded with the large font showing the date. A small detail considering how good this clock is. Definitely the best one out there.
Exactly as described
Was what I was looking for for home and travel. Really like the amber back-light which can be switched to constant or come on when pushing the top button for a quick time check.
I needed a new travel clock, and this one has it all. It has not only the time, but date, time zone, and temperature. It will be a great asset when I travel. It also comes with a great travel bag.
We bought 2 travel alarm clocks
I bought 2 travel alarm clocks and gave them as a gift. As the directions suggest, we put them both on a window sill to sync with radio signals for the time overnight. One clock worked perfectly, and the other had a hard time picking up the signal. We were eventually able to pick up the signal by changing windows, and it is fine now. I like this clock because it is small and can be used for travel, easy to use, has a loud alarm and has a backlight that isnt too bright. I bought one of the clocks for my 82 year old Dad, and the display was large enough for him to see.
Meets the Travel Demands
I need this thing to be reliable - missing deadlines on the road is disastrous. Really like the atomic clock feature as it keeps up with my time zone switching
The alarm rings for only 60 seconds.
This is a handy little clock. I particularly like the way the backlight will remain on during the dark and turn off when there is no darkness.
What I dont like is the duration of the alarm. It only sounds for 60 seconds and it does not repeat itself. I may not wake up in a minute if I am tired or drunk. So, I returned the clock only for that reason. Otherwise, this is a lovely clock.
I love this product!
This product is very easy to use. I am a frequent traveler who routinely travels to different time zones. This product allows for quick adjustments whenever I have to change the current time or alarm time. I would recommend this product to everyone who has similar needs and quality product sxpectations.
Loving It More Everyday!
Using this as daily alarm clock. Beginning to love everything about it. Took awhile for time to set correctly and for me to correctly set alarm. That being said I love the size, the illumination (can see, but not too bright), not having to reset time manually. Although this was more then I wanted to spend, it was well worth the money.
Love everything about this clock except that the alarm sound is not loud enough. It is actually very quiet.
The clock has been great to use. Has worked well with my travels
Desk Top Clock
This clock is actually more suitable for a desktop rather than a travel clock. The clock is a little too bulky and heavy for air travel. The screen numbers are very visible.
Best travel clock yet
When I travel for business or pleasure, I always take along a travel alarm clock since I never know if the hotel will supply one in the room. Over the past few years, Ive had several alarm clocks which havent lasted more than a year and seemed to be made of very flimsy materials with complicated controls. This clock is easy to use, feels very substantial, has a back light that can be kept on or turned on at will. I believe Ive finally located the ultimate travel alarm clock.
My needs might not be yours
I had been looking for a time-signal sync portable clock for a while, one that always has the right time, is large enough for my desk or bed side, and does not depend on the electic power not blinking out, as it may when there is an overnight storm. I also want large enough numbers that I can read without digging out my glasses, and solid enough that I wouldnt be afraid of it falling apart if I sneeze. This clock does all that.
Any buyer can see from the listed dimensions and weight that it could be too large if you are trying to prune every ounce of your suitcase for travel. I dont usually have that problem. An electric clock has too bright lights. A corded clock cant be kept on my desk in my line of sight with visitors, which I need to be sure they wont overstay and that I wont be late for my next meeting.
I just bought it, so I cant comment on battery life, durability, or other details that require many months of experience. I can say after a week that its size, functions and "style" serves exac
Brought for husband. Likes that it is synchronized with Atomic clock. Good size for travel. Only gives limited number of short snoozes.
Directions confusing at first, but once figured out is easy to use. I wanted it to be backlit, so I can see it in the dark without pushing a button. I like it because it is backlit [which is hard to find] - even tho it is a little bulky for travel.
Very nice product at excellent price
I need a clock in my office which I can see easily without squinting, and one that also keeps accurate time. This clock fulfills both needs well.
Travel Alarm Clock
I bought one of these clocks for home and one for travel. I was surprised at how much a clock this small was able to do without being frustratingly complicated. It is too soon to make a judgment about battery life, but this item is very good so far.
A most excellent small clock.
A great clock! Excellent dimensions big enough to use as an everyday bedside clock. BIG numbers, easy to read at night with the back light, which is you turn off if you don;t like.
This clock is perfect for travel. Most travel clocks focus on being small, and are too small. This is a really nice size. It feels like I have a piece of home with me when on the road.
easy to see in the dark
I travel for my job and this is an excellent alarm clock.
Everything about this clock pleased me!
The lettering is of good size and easy to read. I use this on my nightstand and in the dark its easy to light up. Not only small and compact, but very sturdy. I consider this a very good buy.
Solid, Simple, Clean Alarm Clock
bought this for its clean design and configuration to use at home and as a travel alarm. it is bigger and heavier than I thought it would be, which for home use is not a problem, but its bigger than Id want to travel with.
Great for on the go!
Absolutely accurate, easy to see and dependable, which are critical elements of a travel alarm clock.
Looked for this type of clock everywhere and could not find it finally saw it in your catalog. Unfortunately I have to return mine as everyone in the family knew my husband was looking for it And he got 3 of them all the same from sharper image.......he loves it and is keeping 2 of them.
Easy to set. We had to return one from a different company because it was so complicated.
I use this as my bedside table clock. The light can be suttle or brighter, easy to see and use.
It took 6 months to find the ideal clock
Everything is there and easy to read. I use it to time myself brushing my teeth and rinsing with mouthwash. I cant find a thing Id change about it. Exactly what I wished for and found.
Atomic Travel Alarm Clock
These additional 3 Atomic Travel Alarm Clocks now make a total of 6 that I have ordered---4 for myself to use in different houses & when traveling
and 2 for gifts. This is the best one Ive seen in this type of clock.
Its the perfect travel alarm clock, and now I use it at home too. It does everything, and the alarm is loud enough to wake me up.
Hard to find great alarm clock
Perfect size, great display, and time accurate to the second without fuss. What more could you ask?
Overall, a Good Product
Overall, I like this clock. I bought it for travel, but it would be good for home or office use as well. It has a nice large time display (good for seeing at night without my glasses). It was also easy to set up, and synced with the U.S. Atomic clock very quickly (Im in central Indiana). I like the fact that it reads seconds as well as hours and minutes. The day, date, and temperature are convenient. BTW, I checked the temperature readout against a couple of more-accurate thermometers I have, and it appears to read within a couple of degrees or better. Good enough.
My only gripes, and theyre minor:
(1) At 6.4 oz. (with batteries) the clock is kind of heavy for travel. That somewhat goes along with having a big display and the automatic time sync I suppose, but its by far the heaviest travel alarm Ive ever owned.
(2) The backlight is just a tad too dim in my opinion. Its hard to see even in a totally dark room. Of course you can press the snooze/light button to get a much brighter backligh
Daily alarm clock that can travel
This is the alarm by my bed. As I age, being able to see and read becomes important. Large numbers lit by soft backlighting that I choose to leave on when the room darkens make finding and reading alarm easy. It is big and not light but this makes clock less likely to fall over or off bedside table to be lost or break. Dials are easy to access and use (although manual Atomic Clock receive requires back cover removal). I like this a lot.
Works great once set up was complete.
Needed time piece that had a comfortable to the eye backlight and large number that can be seen in the dark.
Very good product
My wife and I travel frequently and this is a great product (small and light) to take along with us.
Best Travel Alarm Clock
After having to return a number of travel alarm clocks for various reasons, especially due to jarring alarm buzzers and flimsy construction, this one was a breath of fresh air. The alarm gradually gets louder and wakes you up without knocking you out of bed! Controls are easy to figure out and the numbers are easy to read.
Best Travel Alarm
Best Screen Size. Easy to use. A little heavy. Too thick. Marginal cover.
Large for Travel
This clock is large for a travel alarm. The dimensions are given in the listing, but only if you go to the specifications tab, not on the main listing. I just assumed it was the standard 2" x 2"-ish size travel alarm, but this is nearly twice that size. Im not likely to travel with this anytime carrying space is an issue. It seems well made, but I havent used it long enough to be sure.
Travel Atomic Alarm Clock
Big digits which are easy to see. Good controls that are simple to use. Liked this Atomic Clock so much that I already ordered 3 more for gifts.
Only downside was that it took almost overnight for it to receive the Atomic Clock time signal and set itself correctly.
Good price, good quality.
Had a cheap travel clock which bit the dust and wanted a much better quality one. Well I was definitely satisfied with this one and found it easy to adjust the time on my first try. I needed one that adjusted to the light automatically so at night it has a soft back-light making it easy to see the time at a glance which during the day turns off to conserve battery life. This feature can be turned off if not required. The one and only beef I have is if you are looking up at the clock the liquid crystal fades out so it has to be placed slightly below your line of sight, not really a problem though. I am definitely pleased with this purchase. Also great service from this supplier I would certainly purchase from them again.
I really like this alarm clock. Straight forward & simple to use. Easy to read and it sets its self. Nice size for travel use and in my office on my desk.
Excellent Travel Clock
I originally purchased this clock for myself. I had been using a small travel clock on my bedside table because the table is rather small for a normal clock/radio. The clock I had been using was flimsy and the back broke off. I purchased this clock as a replacement and love the size and stability of it. It was easy to set up and the alarm is also simple to set. The alarm tone is just enough to wake me up without being annoying. The face is easy to read when I wake up during the night. The only reason I didnt give it a five star rating is that I purchased one for my husband and strangely, he had trouble setting it up. After monkeying around with a reset button, he got it to work so all is well.
Nice Travel Alarm
This is a nice unit for being on the road. However, its a bit bigger than what I expected. It comes in a nice storage bag and I keep it in my shaving bag. I am a bit worried that the light button will get pushed and the battery will run low or drain fully. We shall see!
Travel Alarm Clock
This is a nice little travel alarm clock that is not too complicated to use. My only complaint with it is that i wish it was louder. Its not bad but i hope i dont sleep through it.
Exactly what my Mom was looking for!
I would recommend this product
I use it both at home and during travel. Its compact and easy to use.
Great clock for using at home or travel. Easy to set up and it has a long battery life.
I wish it wasnt only battery operated (I wish it could be plugged in), but it is still a great clock.
Nice, but ...
Very good product. Ive had it for about three months. I dont travel much, so I use it as my nightstand clock. I bought it specifically because its an atomic clock and because it doesnt take up hardly any space. Instructions state its delicate, due to the atomic synchronization aspect, so you cant just throw it around and hope it still works. I dont like the fact you have to take the back off every time you want to turn the night light on or off. It would have been better to have that button in the front, or no button at all. Also, the display is somewhat crowded (the map showing the portion of the US that the clock is synched with, is not really needed). Other than that, its a nice clock - not too big, and not too small. Much better than those little rinky-dink fold-up clocks I used to buy.
Purchased as a gift...want one myself!
I purchased this as a gift and the person who received it was very happy with it. It doesnt beep when touched during the night which is a huge plus. The light can be kept on or off which is another great feature. The mellow lighting is very pleasant at night.
Travel Alarm Clock is good
I read all the other positive reviews before I purchased and now can add my own. Its just as described. It looks fine, theres nothing excess or distracting looking on it, and is simple to use. So, good simple design and functional.
Great Travel Alarm Clock
Still too early to comment on accuracy, it is atomic so I expect accuracy to be precise
Very happy with this travel clock
I needed a new travel clock because my other one broke. I have used this clock on several trips and am very happy with it. It is easy to use and is sturdy and reliable. My only wish is that it would be a little smaller and lighter, since I take it in my carryon. I am so happy with it in all other aspects, that I am willing to overlook that one tiny drawback.
Travel Alarm Clock
This clock and the alarm both are very easy to set. I like it better than any portable clock I have owned. I would certainly recommend it.
More bang for your buck
Really like the temperature information that is included.
Atomic Travel Alarm Clock
Ive got several atomic clocks already but this is the best one Ive ever seen and now have 6 of this model---4 for myself, with 3 used to put in each of my houses and 1 for travel; then I gave one to my son and one to my daughter-in law. The
temperature is also very useful. The display is bright and evenly lit making it easy to read all the numbers for the time, date, & temperature.
Clock that thinks for itself.
Honestly, you just put the batteries in the clock, it beeps and then wait several minutes and bingo, it has set itself. It has the correct time, date, temperature. All you have to do it set the clock to your time zone. Thats it.
Excellent Product, Easy to use, controls are incredibly easy. I will probably buy several more of these.
Works well, does the job
This is a very nice and well designed travel clock. Very easy to see at night as the clock has a feature that keeps the face lighted (dim orange but readable) at night. That feature goes on automatically when it is dark and can be turned off. The clock adjusts itself using the atomic clock system but can easily be set manually. They do warn you that this is a delicate clock, not to be thrown around or just tossed in a suitcase. I would keep this one in my carryon. All in all so far one of the best travel clocks I have ever owned.
A LITTLE TOO LARGE FOR SERIOUS PACKING AND TRAVEL
Good simple alarm clock
Wanted a small but good alarm clock for the nightstand. These were the perfect size. Did not read instruction booklet. The buttons were pretty self-explanatory. Needed two AA batteries that was not included. Cannot attest to longevity or battery life yet.
Exactly what I had hoped for and more!
I use this clock on travel to be able to see the time at night and to know the temperature in the room in which we are sleeping. Compared with my previous clock, it doesnt fall over when touched! It has a connection to the atomic clocks, capable of dealing with the four US time zones. Took a little effort to understand how to use all the functions, but once that is understood, it works beautifully and easily. I dont know about durability or long-term reliability but the first ten day usage has been fully satisfactory. I am delighted with my purchase.
Great mediator on room temp argument
Used to settle spousal disputes on room temperature
Great travel clock!
I travel a lot. I have used a Sharper Image travel clock for years and needed a new one. This fits neatly in my suitcase. I like everything about it!
Nice travel alarm
I use the clock in a room that has no other clock, Time is very easy to see.
Visible all night
Im delighted that it can stay backlit. It does not require punching a switch to light it each time you want to see the time. This is especially important while traveling.
Mostly used to see the room temp at night. Works great. Love how easy it is to set the clock.
travil clock ?
Larger and heavier then expected. Days of week are displayed in some other language then english and I could not change this. Leaving on an extended work trip and no time left to do an exchange.. Seems a good alarm otherwise.
