Large display alarm clock with multiple alarms?


[link to this post]
 
On an initial investigation it seems that only ones with dual alarms every day are available. I am wanting one which I can set to have one alarm on weekdays, one alarm on Saturdays and occasionally a one off alarm for early-start Sundays.

It must also have a large display I can read from a lying down position without wearing my glasses. And preferably be radio controlled too.

Anyone know of such a beast from a reputable manufacturer?

(I currently use my mobile phone for this but it has a habit of losing track of where the audio is to be routed (headphones, Bluetooth or internal speaker) after I have been playing music etc on it leading to the alarm not sounding and the phone needing rebooting)

I would have to recommend a Pure DAB Radio. Had one for over 5 years and had no problems with it.

They can have upto 4 alarms, which can be set for weekdays, Saturday/Sunday or once only and you be awoken with an alarm tone or your preferred radio station. The Chronos CD Series 2 is remote controlled, can be found cheaper elsewhere (sub £100). I have the smaller version of this without the CD player, the Chronos 2 which they do not make anymore, but as I have already said not had any problems with it.

Sadly they fail at the first (or is it second?) hurdle of not having a large display.

I don't call that a large display!

How about another mobile phone (without a SIM) on a dock?

Bingo! I already have my spare phone and a Bluetooth speaker / Large display clock / charger (but with an inflexible alarm feature).

Have a coconut.

I'll pass your comments on to my spouse who is unable to see a normal clock radio display without her glasses.

This is the one I use. The QI wireless charging is a bit iffy though with my phone in a bumper case and I like to see the phone screen so use a wireless charger stand instead. There is a light wood effect version but I think the display contrast is not as clear to the unfocused eye.

Exactly what I was thinking.
