FEATURES

Your RadioShack Travel Sleep Machine combines a simple design with advanced technology. You can set the clock to announce the time every hour, which is handy in a dark room, for example. You can also set the clock to play soothing sounds to lull you to sleep. The clock’s other features include:

Six Sleeping Sounds — one of six different soothing sounds (rain, train, ocean, wind, brook, and night) lull you to sleep.

Countdown Timer — you can set a time limit on how long the sleep sounds play.

Voice Announcement — lets you hear the time with the touch of a button.

Alarm with Snooze — sounds an alarm and announces the alarm time when the alarm goes off. You can silence the alarm and have it sound again in about 5 minutes, so you can sleep a while longer.

Adjustable Time Format — you can set the time in either the 12or 24-hour format.
