At long last, exactly what I needed
I searched for quite a while, trying to find a simple alarm clock that had a gentle wake up sound, all while not being dependent on a smartphone connection or wifi. This is it! The wake up sound works great for me. Gentle, but enables waking. It's nice there are 2 volume settings. If I had to make one suggestion for an improvement, it would be making some of the buttons have quieter clicking sounds, and maybe adding another button or two (dividing up shared button functionality even more). But these are nitpicks. This alarm clock is so useful to reducing distracting internet in my room and routine, while gently waking me up in the morning. I think the meditation timer is a genius feature idea. I may even use it for interval training. I am looking forward to using this clock for a long time.
I like several things about this clock: the chime sounds great, the size is good, and I like that you can turn off the screen. But the volume is too loud even on Lo. And the buttons are not intuitive, particularly turning off the alarm. Furthermore, the 100% guarantee is great. But the email address for returns doesn't work, and when I emailed through the contact form I got no response. I'd like to return the two clock/timers I ordered. It is frustrating that there's been such a lack of response.
bit pricy, but worth it
pros: - operation is simple and reasonable - design is enough simple - no internet connection cons: - button clicking sound is a bit loud - button doesn't work properly some time - low volume of chime sound is still too loud for me (I applied some paper on back and it works well) - setting timer length isn't very smart. I prefer dial - LCD screen quality is bad: good contrast angle is very limited overall: I'm satisfying with this product. Thanks for this timer, now I can go to bed and meditate without any electric device except this one.
Clock Doesn't Work & Customer Service Doesn't Respond
I was very excited to receive my Awake Clock and Meditation timer. This should be a great product and I would love to give it a good review. However, I received a clock with a mechanical problem -- the up and down arrow buttons that you use to set the time, timer, and alarm, do not function. Ok, that's a bummer but I figured I would just ask to exchange the broken clock I received for a working one. However, the customer service for returns is severely lacking. I have tried calling customer service, there was no answer, and emailing the company -- one email bounced, and my messages to 2 other email addresses at the company have not been returned. It's been more than 1 business day since I reached out to the company and I have had no response. If they get back to me and I'm able to successfully exchange my Awake Clock/Timer for a working one, I'll update my review. Meanwhile, buyer beware -- if you have any issues with your purchase, don't expect prompt customer service.
Review of Offgrid Mindfulness clock
It is suitable for my daily meditation needs. No bells’n’ whistles, just a simple clock and timer.
