You can quickly set a Timex alarm to go off on time to keep you on schedule. Timex makes a wide variety of alarm clocks styles with varied features. Most Timex alarm clocks have large digital displays so they are easily read from a distance. Snooze features on many Timex alarm clocks allow the user to extend the alarm for a few extra minutes of sleep. Feel confident that you will wake up on time once a Timex alarm clock is correctly set.


Step 1

Plug in the Timex alarm clock. Remove the battery door and add one or more batteries for continuous use of the alarm clock during a power outage. Position the display so it can be seen from the bed or where you expect to be when the alarm sounds.
