Enjoy the convenience of a watch that announces the time and even sets itself, as well as a sleek, stylish design with an easy to see face that's appropriately sized for women and children.
This Talking Radio-Controlled Watch from Reizen offers time announcement at the simple touch of a button, providing convenience to those with visual impairment. A second touch of the button gives you the day of the week and the date. Features of this talking watch include an hourly chime (which may be turned off), alarm, and a 1.125-in. diameter traditional white analog face with bold black numbers and hands for those with low vision. Sweep second hand. Brushed metal alloy bezel. Expansion band. Battery included.
In the USA, the Reizen Talking Radio-Controlled Analog Watch receives a daily signal from the NIST Atomic Clock in Colorado, the nation's timekeeper, ensuring accurate time and even accounting for Daylight Savings changes, so you never have to set your talking watch!
Note: The radio-controlled function will work only in the USA (except Alaska and Hawaii), the UK, Germany and Japan. When outside these areas, the talking watch can be set manually to reflect the correct time on the analog face, but the announced time will not accurately update.
Compared to other time signal transmissions in higher bands (WWV, GPS, etc.) long-wave signals have a number of advantages. They can go around obstacles such as mountains or buildings. Since no line-of-sight is necessary between the transmitter and receiver, a single very powerful station can cover a huge geographic area. Long-wave signals even penetrate the walls of most buildings quite well. Propagation happens mostly in the form of a ground wave, such that transmission delay is less affected by the variability of the ionosphere.
Battery Type: CR2032
NOTE: Atomic Radio-Controlled NIST Time-Setting Function is ONLY available in:
1) USA (excluding Alaska and Hawaii); 2) United Kingdom; 3) Germany; and 4) Japan.
However, the time is easily set manually wherever there is no accessible atomic signal.
