I reached out to the Acurite to ask if I could do a review on there Atomic indoor/outdoor with thermometer and my wish was granted. This is an amazing clock. It was secured in the box to make sure that it arrives safety to you in one piece.
Once I saw how securely it was placed in the box I was even more impressed.
You turn the box over and there are three very tight screws to remove so the clock will release
After removing the clock and reading the directions I am anxious to see how all this is going to work. It reminds me of the big classroom clocks that we stared at for 30 minutes waiting for the bell to ring. Very simple and yes very accurate.
So this beautiful addition to my room hangs nicely on the wall beside my desk. which is just perfect. At first I was getting somewhat frustrated, but then back to the directions I went. You see you cannot manually set the clock. Once you remove the cover to add the battery they suggest a Lithium 1 x “AA”. WELL once the battery is in place you still have a few more steps you need to do. Simple steps.
Turn open add battery set the time zone place cover back on close tight and hang on the wall as you can see there is a perfect hanging opening very lightweight I have this clock hanging on a simple single wall nail.
There are two places to set the East & Pacific Coast Mountain & Central time zones. which by the way will automatically change with time zone daylight saving. Nice Right. Then you need to hang the clock and let this clock find the correct location, so I hang the clock and the arms just move and move and still not hitting the right time zone, I took the clock down and hit the reset button as suggested in the directions, which by the way come in several languages. Sweet Right. In today’s world we need so many languages.
So I reset the clock placed back on the wall watched it spin around and what do you know landed on the exact time as my PC & my cable box and the weather was right on the money which I really like.
