USING THE ALARM
THERMOMETER AND HYGROMETER FUNCTIONS
The alarm sounds when the alarm time you set is reached. You can also use the Alarm Mode selector (8) to
select the snooze alarm feature.
A built-in sensor measures temperature and humidity, and shows the measured value on the display.
The readout from the temperature sensor can also be switched between Celsius (°C) and Fahrenheit (°F).
Setting the Alarm Time
Temperature Measurements
Use the – (DOWN) and + (UP) buttons (4) to set the alarm time.
Pressing the – (DOWN) and + (UP) buttons (4) causes the alarm time to appear in place of the date on the
display.
• The temperature display shows “LO” for temperatures below –19.9°C (–3.8°F) and “HI” for temperatures above
49.9°C (121.8°F).
• Though temperature readings are displayed up to 0°C (32°F) and greater than 41°C (105°F), note that such
readings are actually outside the guaranteed temperature range of this clock.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT
Replace batteries whenever the display of the clock becomes dim and difficult to read.
1. Open the battery compartment cover as shown in the illustration.
2. Remove all of the old batteries.

5. Replace the battery compartment cover.
Battery precautions
• Keep batteries out of the reach of small children. If a battery is accidentally swallowed, contact your physician
immediately.
• Be sure to load the batteries with their positive (+) and negative (–) ends facing correctly.
• Never mix old and new batteries, or batteries of different brands.
• Never charge the batteries that come with the clock.
• Should batteries ever leak while in the clock, wipe out the fluid with a cloth, taking care not to let any get onto your
skin.
• Replace the batteries at least once a year, even if the current batteries are working properly.
• The batteries that come with the clock lose some of their power during transport and storage.
