    Further info

    • Shape: Crescent moon with a rounded bottom.

    • Battery: 2 to 5 years depending on use

    Telling the time example 11:35

    • Press/release hour button: 2 long pulses and a single pulse.
    • Press/release the tens of minutes button: 3 short pulses.
    • Press/hold the minutes button: 1 long pulse.

    An O'clock time would result in no tens or minutes of vibration: i.e. 11.00 would be:

    • Press/release the hour button: 2 long pulses and a single pulse.
    • Press/release the tens of minutes button: no pulses.
    • Press/release the minutes button: no pulses.
    • To set the time: hold down the hour, tens of minutes or minutes button, wait for a very long pulse, and then count the pulses for:
    • Hour: 0 (no pulse after the long vibration, and 1 to 12 (remembering that each pulse is an hour).
    • Tens of minutes: 0 (after the long vibration), and 1 to 5 pulses (remembering that each pulse is ten minutes).
    • Minutes: 0 (after the long vibration), and 1 to 9 (remembering that each pulse is 1 minute).

    Product benefits

    • Ergonomic crescent moon shape, feels comfortable in the hand, and easy to access buttons with thumb if cupped with other 4 fingers.
    • Extremely easy to use/reset the time.
    • Discrete way to tell the time.
    • Great benefit to people who have difficulty hearing a talking watch or can't see a standard or large print time piece.
    • Very distinctive vibrating pulses for very long pulse (to reset the time), long pulse of 5 units, and short pulses for 1 units.
    • The 3 round buttons are raised from the surface, are of a reasonable size, and well spaced apart.
    • Waterproof to 10 meters.

    Points to consider

    • Due to the crescent moon shape, be careful putting it down on a smooth surface as it may slide away from you.

    Helpful hints

    • After pressing one of the buttons (such as the minute button), if the button is pressed again within 30 seconds, even though the ''real'' time is still going, the vibration will just vibrate the initial time before the 30 second period.

    Product comparison

    • Much simpler and easier to tell the time than a braille watch. More discrete in telling the time compared to a talking watch.
