Also includes a digital temperature gauge and shows the moons phase!
And it's cheaper here than anywhere else, or was when I bought it.
Like the previous model, it shows the Date, day & month, moon phases & temperature in either C or F. The time display is large & clear & gets synch'd several times a day - more often than many RC clocks.
The clock has an on-demand back-light that's far brighter than the ambient one, has a hinge out foot for shelf mounting but has one howling design flaw - when hung from a wall mounted hook, the clock tilts about 15 degrees. Otherwise great & not sound during normal operation so great for bedrooms. The time format can be set to either 12 or 24.
A large display LCD clock with a built-in thermometer was perfect for both functions.
I didn't actually realise that it was a radio-controlled clock when I ordered it, I just needed a reliable large-display LCD so this was a bonus. I followed the instructions but after 15 minutes sitting on my desk the clock failed to pick up the transmitted time. I removed and replaced the batteries to reset it and put it on a high shelf for better reception. The correct time and date appeared within 3 minutes. Job done. Nice to know I never need to set it again, and it's nice to know I have a clock to set everything else by. Brilliant.
I don't know how accurate the thermometer is but it stays within 2 degrees celsius of a standard greenhouse thermometer on the same shelf so I'm guessing it's probably OK, although it did take a long time to adjust to match the other thermometer so I'm guessing it's no good for monitering rapid changes in temperature, in case that's important to you.
A back-light would have been nice but I suspect it would drain the batteries quite quickly, and I wasn't looking for one anyway. I like the look of it, I like the date display and the various display options. The moon phase display is an unnecessary extravagence as I can get that information by looking out of the window (should I ever need it) but I have a soft spot for frivolous esoteric functions so I'm happy.
PS Knowing that I have the same clock as the Torchwood team has just sent me over the edge and I want to give this 6 stars.
This clock performed exactly as expected with absolutely no issues.
It worked out of the box, one batteries had been fitted, and corrected the time to the uk time transmission.
The clock has a manula switch between Uk and Europe time transmissions.
