Default Atomic clock with alarms?

Haven't been using an atomic clock but think it's time to go that route. I would like an atomic clock that also has multiple alarms you can set. I like to have a alarm go off on the hour to let me know that I have 5 minutes till the box has to be on the table, but I use my cell phone and invariably it is in my pocket and it goes off when i'm gloved up building boxes. So if anybody uses one or has seen one that has multiple alarm settings, so i don't have to set the alarm after every turn in that would be super helpful.

We use an atomic clock, but I think it only has 1 alarm, so I purchased this:



Can set 3 different timers, so you can track 3 different things if you will. Very technical explaination, I know.

We have an atomic clock with an alarm from Sam's Club, but I never use it.

Maybe I'm the only one, we hang the clock near the prep table so I can constantly check the time as turn-in approaches, and if my head is down in a box I'm asking a teammate to call it out for me.

Seems like having an alarm go off would add unnecessary stress, not to mention one more thing to deal with when the crunch is on.

But then we all have different ways to do stuff, so Carry On!

We do the same thing. Bought a cheap atomic clock from Wal mart with big ole numbers. We can just look up and see how much time we have. Whoever is the box runner calls out how many minutes we have left until time is out.

Minutes!

I wish we were good enough to have such luxury. Invariably there is at least one box (usually pork) where we're down to calling out the time in ten second increments...

Never been late with one yet though. (knock wood!)

If I used a alarm I would have to get three clocks in case two of the alarms failed and then I would still have someone watching the clock just in case. Keith

I guess if the clock is big and on the wall and not in my pocket than someone other than me can look at it

This!

We bought this clock and it's a hit with all of our neighbors who can see it from their site!
