All the buttons are found on the top of the clock in a circular pattern. The Talk button is in the center, and gives you all the information you need to make a plan. "It is 5:49 PM. The temperature is 70.5 degrees Fahrenheit. The humidity is 47 percent." Right away, you know you're late for your dinner date, it's too hot for your guests, but the humidity is just fine.
But that's not all. The clock can speak the time in either 12 or 24-hour format. With the press of a single button, you can access the built-in timer, perfect for makeing sure you don't burn your cookies - or tonight's roast beef. The clock will even announce how much time is left on the timer when you hit the Talk button, something no other Talking Timer will do. This clock is the RV-lover's dream, and the one-stop solution for a crowded apartment or basement suite. It even has rubber feet to keep it from sliding around, making it a great choice for even a large kitchen. It's an alarm clock that speaks the time and temperature, has a built-in timer, and can even announce the humidity! Takes 4 AAA batteries, not included.
