The Invisible Clock II will count up or down, has a unique meeting timer to regulate presentations and meetings, is a stopwatch, and features 12 Alarms that will beep or vibrate, and a custom timer function.
Mode 1: The Countdown Timer
In the Timer Mode, you can program in any time (in seconds, minutes and hour increments) for a single time event, or for a repeating time event. For example, if you set the Timer to 30 minutes, the Invisible Clock with vibrate or beep (vibration lasts 20 seconds, beep can be set to 1, 2, or up to 6 beeps) after 30 minutes. You can also set the Timer to Repeat and it will repeat every 30 minutes (in this example).
The Timer has the option of counting up in seconds, minutes and hours, and in countdown, the display shows hours, minutes, and seconds. This Timer can be set for up to 999 hours (over 41 days). For example, you can set a countdown time of 1 minute and 20 seconds; or 1 hour, 10 minutes and 30 seconds.
The Timer saves the last time you set, so that if you want to use this same time again for a countdown, you only need to press one button to restart it.
Use the Timer for timing anything, or in repeat mode to practice a new habit, an affirmation, or to remember anything repeatedly.
(Any of the 12 Alarms will signal while the Timer is in operation, so you can creatively program the Invisible Clock in many ways using the Timer and the 12 Alarms together).
Mode 2: The Meeting Timer
In this Mode, you program in any time interval from 10 minutes to 2 hours and start it. Then the Meeting Timer will automatically send a silent vibration signal at the 1/2 way point, at 5 minutes before the end, and at the end of your time interval. Each of the vibration signals is unique for each of these three alerts, so you know exactly where you are along the way (the first signal is a 6 second vibration, the second signal are two 4 second vibrations with a 4 second space between them, and the final signal is a 8 second vibration). The Meeting Timer then automatically resets and repeats the same time interval.
The Meeting Timer repeats every 1/2 hour, hour, or every 2 hours as follows:
- If a meeting time is 30 minutes or less the Meeting Timer will automatically repeat every 30 minutes.
- If a meeting time is between 31 minutes and 1 hour, the Meeting Timer will repeat every hour.
- If a meeting time is between 61 minutes and 2 hours, it will repeat every 2 hours.
Here are two examples of how the Meeting Timer operates:
If you set the Meeting Timer for a meeting of 50 minutes it will begin when you start it - for example, lets say you start it on the hour: It will send your first vibration signal at 25 minutes after the hour. The second vibration signal is sent 45 minutes after the hour and the final vibration at 50 minutes after the hour. Then the Meeting Timer will automatically start the same meeting time on the next hour and keep repeating this meeting time every hour. If your meeting time begins at a time other than on the hour, you can set this timer to begin at this time and the Meeting Timer will automatically stay on this new time schedule rather than "on-the-hour" schedule.
For people with ADD or ADHD, you could set the Meeting Timer for 60 minutes and start it on the hour. With this setting the Meeting Timer begins on the hour, then you receive a vibration on the 1/2 hour, at 5 minutes to the hour, and at the hour. Each of these vibrations are unique so you can tell what the time is without looking at a clock. The meeting timer then resets for the next hour automatically. This allows you to track time automatically for each hour. If you have medication you need to take at certain hours during the day, you can set an Alarm at about 1 to 5 minutes after the hour so you'll be able to differentiate these times from the Meeting Timer signals you receive every hour (Alarm vibrations last for 20 seconds). Any of the 12 Alarms will operate while the Meeting Timer (or Timer ) is in operation (however, the Alarms need to be set first before setting the meeting timer or the timer.
Mode 3: The 12 Alarms
In this mode, you can set up to 12 Alarms in any 24-hour period. When an Alarm time matches the time of the clock in the Invisible Clock, an Alarm will sound or vibrate (depending on your setting of the alarm toggle switch). Once an Alarm is set (for example, 7:00 am) it stays set and will signal every day at this time until it is erased. Alarms are easily checked, set or erased in this mode. An Alarm that is set in this mode will signal at its time no matter what mode your Invisible Clock is in. This feature allows you to be quite creative with your programing of the Invisible Clock (the vibration signal lasts for 20 seconds in this mode).
Mode 4: The Custom Timer
In the Custom Timer mode, you program in your countdown time up to 60 minutes, then you program up to 6 unique alerts to signal anywhere within the countdown time. You can set this timer for one countdown, to repeat, or to count up after countdown is complete. The countdown time can be in minutes and seconds, and any of the 6 alerts you program can be in minute and second increments. The alerts are unique as follows:
Alert A = 5 second vibration, or 1 beep (depending on where the alert switch is set - to vibration or beep).
Alert B = 5 second vibration - 5 second space - 5 second vibration, or two beeps.
Alert C = 10 second vibration, or 3 beeps
Alert D = 10 second vibration - 7 second space - 10 second vibration, or 4 beeps.
Alert E = 20 second vibration, or 5 beeps.
Alert F = 2 second vibration, or 6 beeps.
If the custom timer is used for a single countdown, it saves all settings and only one button needs to be pressed to restart the same countdown and alerts.
Once programmed, the custom timer saves all programming until you erase it.
Mode 5: The Stopwatch
In this mode you can start, stop, pause, restart, or reset the Stopwatch . The Stopwatch counts up by hundredths of a second and will count up to 99 hours and 99 minutes. After 10 hours the hundredths of a second are no longer visible.
Mode 6: Setting Vibration And Beep Settings
The Invisible Clock can be set to beep or vibrate via a toggle switch on the side of the unit . The vibration can be set to low, medium or high; when set to "low" it is subtle and quiet; on high the vibration is strong, like a pager. Beep volume can be set to low, medium or high; on low it is soft, and on high it is super loud. The number of beeps can be set to 1, 2 ... or up to 6 beeps.
Mode 7: Setting Time And Date
In this mode you set the current time and date. The time and date are shown on the display of the Invisible Clock.
