Timex nature sounds alarm clocks offer users several features that go beyond the normal alarm clock. With the nature sounds alarm clock, you can listen to soothing natural noises, including the ocean surf, a forest spring, a rushing brook and the summer wind. In addition to being able to listen to natural sounds at any time, you can use the sounds as an alarm, in addition to the typical radio and buzzer alarms that are featured in standard alarm clocks.
Setting the Clock
Press and hold the "Time" button until the time on the screen starts blinking. The "Time" button is located to the left of the LCD screen.
Push the ">>" button to move the time forward, or "<<" to move the time backward. If you hold either button down it will make the time move faster. Both buttons are located under the LCD screen.
Exit the setup by pressing the "Enter" button. You can also wait approximately 10 seconds, after which the clock will exit the setup.
Setting the Date
Press the "Date/7-5-2 Button" until the display starts blinking. The "Date/7-5-2 Button" is located under the "Time" button.
Use the ">>" button to move the year forward, or the "<<" to move the year backward and press the "Enter" button. The year will disappear from the LCD and the month and day will appear.
Adjust the date using the ">>" or "<<" buttons and press "Enter" when the correct date is entered.
Setting the Alarm
Decide which type of alarm you want to set. You can choose between the radio, nature sounds or a buzzer.
Press the corresponding button according to the type of alarm you want to set until the LCD changes. The button choices are "Radio," "Sounds" and "Buzzer" and are located to the right of the LCD.
Set the time for the alarm by pressing the ">>" or "<<" button.
Set the radio station or nature sound you want as the alarm. If choosing a radio station, use the "Band" button to tune to the station or press one of the station memory buttons. If choosing a nature sound, use the "Sounds" button to cycle through the different nature sounds. You don't need to decide on the type of buzzer sound as there is only one.
Press the "Date/7-5-2" button to choose when the alarm operates. When you choose "7," the alarm will sound every day of the week. Choosing "5" sounds the alarm Monday-Friday. The "2" setting sounds the alarm on the weekend.
Save the alarm setting by pressing the "Enter" button.
