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.
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.
Easy to Read at a Distance Clock
Once its set up...easy to read at a distance...just getting the knack of it...
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.)
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 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
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.
Attractive, Efficient, Accurate
The atomic clock sits on my nightstand. Its dim amber nightlight shows time without interrupting sleep.
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!
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.
Brought for husband. Likes that it is synchronized with Atomic clock. Good size for travel. Only gives limited number of short snoozes.
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.
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.
I would definitely buy this product agai
Works well at home and away from home.Very compact and travels well.
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.
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.
Compact and perfect for packing
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!
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.
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.
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.
Love this clock. Very easy to use.
Accurate, Easy to Use, Compact
Nice features with atomic clock and provides temperature of room, especially helpful for the traveler.
I use this as my bedside table clock. The light can be suttle or brighter, easy to see and use.
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!
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.
Hard to find great alarm clock
Perfect size, great display, and time accurate to the second without fuss. What more could you ask?
Good little clock
Initially confusing about setup but within24 hrs it set itself automatically... Nice easy alarm... Convenient nite light. Good functional clock.
Great Travel Clock
Great clock for travel. I love the backlighting, just the right brightness so it doesnt disturb you while sleeping.
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 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.
Best Travel Alarm
Best Screen Size. Easy to use. A little heavy. Too thick. Marginal cover.
Alram Clock for Christmas
Home alarm on night stand
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.
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.
Great size, easy to see, will get a 2nd
Great for travel
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
I can count on it to give me correct information that I can easily see.
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.
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.
A great product
When im not traveling, it sits on the table next to my recliner...
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.
great travel clock
great little travel clock - great size, large display and stays lite at night, and radio set time
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.
Excellent travel item
Great compact travel clock! Easy to set alarm with very accurate time keeping. Controls are very user friendly.
I would recommend this product
I use it both at home and during travel. Its compact and easy to use.
Best travel clock
Numbers are big, can see at night, travels well,surable, attractive, love everything about it.
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.
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
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...
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)
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.
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 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.
Exactly as described !
More bang for your buck
Really like the temperature information that is included.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
Mostly used to see the room temp at night. Works great. Love how easy it is to set the clock.
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.
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.
