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.

        We own two clocks. I purchased one to replace a broken alarm clock and liked it a lot. Bought a second one a year later. The first one displays the correct time. The second one has gained time slowly. It is now nearly 6 minutes fast. There is no way to reset.

          This is the best alarm clock I've ever had. Sets the time itself and has two different alarm settings so you can use one for weekdays, one for sleeping in on weekends.

                Comments about TimeSmart Self-Setting Alarm Clock:

                I loved the dual alarm feature and the clock's ability to reset itself after power outages....for the first two years the clock ran perfectly....then it started losing time. The clock now runs about five minutes behind the actual time and there is NO WAY to reset the clock to the proper time. It is incredibly frustrating to have an alarm clock that cannot be reset manually! Also, the alarm clock light is too bright, even at the dim setting...I usually end up putting a book in front of the clock so that the whole room is not too bright.

                              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.
