TimeSmart Self-Setting Alarm Clock

An alarm clock so smart, it sets—and resets—itself.


Just plug it in—it sets itself.
  • Plug it in and select your time zone—the clock does the rest
  • Automatically sets itself to the correct time after power outages
  • Remembers your alarm settings
  • Adjusts for Daylight Savings
  • Soft backlight with easy-to-ready, big-digit display
  • Five backlight settings
  • Fumble-free, easy-to-see alarm buttons
  • Dual crescendo alarms wake you gradually
Brookstone's TimeSmart™ Self-Setting Clock never needs setting—or resetting. Just plug it in and select your time zone.
It automatically sets the right time, and resets after power outages or unplugging. The extra long-life battery back-up system lasts five years, so the time will always be accurate, even through numerous power interruptions. Plus, the clock adjusts to six time zones, and auto-adjusts for Daylight Savings Time.

Even during power outages, our self-setting clock remembers the correct time, your alarm settings and the date. And it's loaded with user-friendly features!
The pop-up alarm button is easy to find first thing in the morning. Dual crescendo alarms with snooze wake you gradually and let you set two separate wake-up times. The easy-to-read display has an adjustable backlight with five settings to choose from: High, Medium, Low, Dim or Off.

Give yourself one less thing to worry about, and get an easy-to-use alarm clock that sets and resets itself—get a TimeSmart™ alarm clock from Brookstone® today.

I've only had this clock for a few days, but so far it's been great. The alarm really is gradual - I keep the clock less than a foot away from my head and I barely hear it when it first starts to go off, but as it gets louder I hear it and wake up before my husband even notices it. The clock is three minutes behind my computer, cell phone, and cable clocks, but it's only three minutes, so not a big problem. I was at first disappointed that I really need to have the backlight off completely to sleep, but I'm really glad it gives that option. You just tap the snooze button to see the clock at night and, though it comes on bright, it's only on for a few seconds and then automatically goes off again. Also, it is difficult to see the time during the day when the backlight is off, so I've been turning the backlight on in the morning and off at night - no big deal. Just so glad to finally have a clock that doesn't act as a night light too! Oh- and as a side note - I thought this clock was unreliable at first - it kept turning off and resetting itself. I thought it was possessed, but it turns out that I didn't have the cord fully plugged into the clock - you have to push the little round plug all the way into the clock so it will stay put. Once I did that, I actually found it difficult to unplug from the clock - which is a good thing as I flail about in the mornings reaching for the snooze button!

I like the feature that displays the active alarm time setting. I guess when I read self-setting I assumed it received the radio signal from the U.S. Atomic clock. Actually, the unit has a self-contained battery operated clock which continues to tell time from when it is set at the factory. If the power goes out, the battery clock keeps the correct time until it comes back on. It is calendar programmed for Daylight Savings Time; let's hope they don't change the dates. You can manually set the time and will have to once the battery runs out. This clock is meant for people who are confused about setting digital timepieces, not for fans of atomic accuracy.

          Setting is simple, it sets itself to eastern time. Setting alarms is easy because you can go forward or backward. No more holding down a button forever waiting for the time to come around again.
          Gradual increasing volume of the alarm is nice too.
          Raised buttons when alarm activated makes it easy to see/feel when the alarm is set and easy to turn on/off without looking.

            We already have one of these clocks in the Master Bedroom and when it came time to replace a different one in the same room, this is the one we went with. Different people with different schedules on different days call for multiple settings and individual clocks.

            Could be better if available in-store rather than on-line.

                  Absolutely love this. I was replacing a clock radio and wasn't sure at first about not having the radio but then realized that I never really used the radio feature other than to wake up too anyway rather than a noisy alarm. With this and the gradual alarm sound I find that I'm waking up before the alarm reaches its loudest and can shut it off. I also love the fact that you can set the brightness of its display to your liking--with the settings given there is bound to be one for anybody and I also love how the numbers are displayed and stand out--makes it so easy to read.

                      I am highly disappointed with this product. It was purchased for me as a Christmas gift by my husband last year and no longer works. It never set itself automatically, although I attributed this to the dense tree cover around our home. As a result I always set it manually. Other than that the product worked fine until a couple of weeks ago. Now the clock regularly resets itself. When I called customer care to ask about repairing the clock or exchanging it if no repairs were possible I was informed that since it was purchased at an outlet and was a "final sale," Brookstone would not repair or give credit toward the purchase of a new clock. Save your money and buy a clock somewhere else!!!!

                          Use as wake-up alarm. Because it resets itself, but always 7 minutes slow, it 'a never correct. I cannot figure out how to reset the alarms so they will coincide. Store would not take it back, and I now see that you have to pay for a "protection plan!" I hope that they have improved.

                            I'm rather stunned at the negative comments. I've had this clock for six years, Christmas gift where my husband really got me something useful. First, if the time is off, you got a dud, return it. The display can be turned completely off for night time, and you can check the time (stays on 10 seconds) by hitting the snooze button. This clock is no harder to set than any other modern clock. I love the power outage and daylight savings time reset feature. It's invaluable. I was on this site to check how much they cost so I can get each of my two teenagers one.
