Alarm Clock Shows Inaccurate Time

Follow

If the time changes or is off by an hour or more:

  1. Check to make sure you have selected your proper time zone.
  2. If you observe Daylight Saving Time, make sure that DST is always turned ON.
  3. Make sure you are using standard alkaline batteries from a high-quality brand. We do not recommend using rechargeable or heavy-duty batteries. 
  4. If the unit is atomic it will automatically correct itself with the date and time once it picks up the atomic signal. Try moving the unit to a window facing Colorado overnight (signal is better at night) so it can gain a strong connection. If it continues to change, you may want to relocate the unit to a different location in your home.
