The alarm clock is an essential piece of equipment for anyone who needs to get up early. It can be especially useful for those who have to wake up at a specific time each day, such as commuters and shift workers. But using an alarm clock isn’t always as easy as it sounds.
Alarm clocks come in many different shapes and sizes, with features that vary greatly from one model to another. For example, some alarms are designed to be used while traveling while others are intended for use only at home. Some models even offer multiple alarms so you can set different times for different days of the week.
I have been using analog alarm clocks for years that wake me up at a predetermined time. I have tried every trick and tip out there, but the one I like the best is actually the simplest. To set your alarm on an analog alarm clock, use this following trick:
Simply pick the clock put it in front of your face. You will find knobs or keys for both setting the time and setting the alarm. There are normally three knobs in all: one for the hour hand, one for the minute hand and one for setting the alarm.
Set the big hand on the 12, and the little hand on the 4
The first step to setting an alarm is to know how to read your analog clock.
Set the big hand on the 12, and the little hand on the 4.
Next, move the minute hand forward until it lines up with 30 minutes past the hour. That’s where you want to set your alarm for every day of the week. If you have a weekday off or something similar, just adjust accordingly.
Here are some examples:
If you want to wake up at 4:30 AM on Monday through Friday, set your alarm for 3:30 AM. Then move forward 30 minutes (from 3:30 AM), which lands you at 4:00 AM—the time when you want your alarm to go off on Monday through Friday.
Then pull out the knob to set your alarm
Pull out the knob on your clock until it reaches 7:72 PM (or whatever time you want). This will be your alarm time. Then pull out the knob again until it reaches “Alarm Off” or “Snooze.” Press this button once if you do not want an alarm sound; press it twice if you do want an alarm sound but do not want to get up right away; press it three times if you want an alarm sound but would like to get up right away; or press it four times if you want both an alarm sound and would like to get up right away!
If you want to stop the alarm before it goes off, just lay your hand on top of the clock face for three seconds, this silences it for 30 minutes. If you want to turn off the alarm for good, turn on a light or move around in bed to reset it for another day.
If you want it to go off in 30 minutes, turn it all the way around until it points to the 3
If you want it to go off in 30 minutes, turn it all the way around until it points to the 3 (or 4). If you want it to go off in an hour, turn the dial halfway around until it points to 12 (or 1). If you want it to go off in two hours and 20 minutes, turn the dial all the way around until it points at 2:20 (or 4:50).
- If you want it to go off in 30 minutes, turn it all the way around until it points to the 3.
- If you want it to go off in one hour, turn it so that the number 4 is directly above the hour hand.
- If you want it to go off in two hours, turn it so that the number 5 is directly above the hour hand.
- If you want it to go off in three hours, turn it so that the number 6 is directly above the hour hand.
- If you want it to go off in four hours, turn it so that the number 7 is directly above the hour hand.
- If you want it to go off in five hours, turn it so that the number 8 is directly above the hour hand.
Then push the knob back into place so that it stays there
To set an alarm for 4:30 AM, you will need to first turn the knob on your clock to 4:30. Then push the knob back into place so that it stays there.
If you can’t find a knob on your analog clock, try using a key or pen. If it’s too hard to turn manually, try setting up an automatic reminder on your phone or computer.
Next, you want to set the time on your analog watch so that it reads 4:30 AM just before you go to bed tonight.
Now, when you go to sleep and wake up in the morning, your digital clock will beep at 4:30 AM exactly and your analog clock will read 4:30 AM exactly.
When the time comes around, your alarm will make a loud noise
When the time comes around, your alarm will make a loud noise. This is great for those who need a little bit of extra help waking up.
The best thing about analog alarms is that they are cheap and easy to find. Most stores that sell home goods will have them available in their stores or online. They also come in all shapes and sizes, so you can choose one that matches your style perfectly.
Set up your alarm clock so that it wakes you up just before your usual waking time. For example, if you usually get up at 6 AM, set your alarm for 5:45 AM. This gives you a little extra time to wake up and start your day without feeling rushed.
Set these knobs, pull out this knob, then click it into place when you’re done
Step 1: Set these knobs, pull out this knob, then click it into place when you’re done.
Step 2: Pull out the handle and set it to 4:30 AM.
Step 3: Pull out the handle and set it to 4:30 AM.
Step 4: Click the knob into place when you’re done setting the time.
It is very easy to use analog clock but you just need little common sense and effort.
