If you find yourself checking your timer frequently to see how much time remains, this is the timer for you.
The problem with ordinary timers is that, unless they are in your line of sight, you never know how much time is left until the alarm rings. The Talking Timer is different, however. During countdown, it announces the time remaining, so you don't have to look - or worry.
Voice reporting happens infrequently when there's lots of time left, more often as the countdown draws to a close. Set the timer for the maximum time of 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds, and you will hear a reminder, in a pleasant, human voice: hourly until one hour in reached every 10 minutes until the final 10 minutes each minute until the last minute every 10 seconds until the last 10 seconds each second to zero
Prefer silence? You can turn off the talking voice and just have the alarm ring at the end.
With its full-day timing range and great precision, the Talking Timer can handle most any timing task, from baking a cake to recalling an appointment. You can even set automatic repeats of countdowns, for regularly scheduled events - perfect if you need to be reminded to take medication at specific times. Want to find out how long a task takes? The Talking Timer can also be set to count up!
Those who have vision problems will love the Talking Timer. But almost anyone will appreciate the freedom this timer provides, alerting you to the time remaining, while leaving your mind and hands free for the task at hand.
Features include: Counts up or down - you choose. A time-out mode stops the timer for "off" periods in both up (stopwatch) and down timing Unique "thru-zero" feature allows counting down, alarming, and counting up. You can set the timer to auto-repeat (When zero is reached, the timer alarms and begins the countdown anew. Repeat cycle continues automatically until stopped). Extra-large 1/2" high display and vivid LCD digits - readable from 10 feet - continuously show the time remaining. In clock mode, timer "announces" time of day. Each timer may be set to a unique alarm sound, so you can purchase and use several simultaneously without confusing them. Sounds include whistling kettle, bell, car horn, cuckoo and a standard beep.
Use the Talking Timer anywhere. Its magnetic back lets you put it on the fridge. Or flip open the easel to stand the timer on a desktop or countertop. There's even a spring fastener for attaching to a clipboard.
