If you need a new large wall clock, perhaps you should consider getting a large digital wall clock instead of an analogue one. There are several great advantages that a digital wall clock has over old style clocks, as we will see in a moment.
Digital clocks really took off in the 70’s and 80’s, and some of these retro clocks are still popular now. People immediately were able to appreciate an alarm clock or wrist watch that showed to time instantly to the second – it was faster to read, and meant that it was easier to use the clock as a stopwatch or to see at a glance how long something had been going for. So the digital wall clock made it s way into businesses, homes and soon even into vehicles.
Although analogue wall clocks and watches (analogue just means the normal round face with a ticking minute and hour hand) have now come a long way and can be found in totally shock resistant and visually attractive form, digital clocks may be a better choice for you.
Maybe you are redecorating a house, or moving into a new house that has a really modern look. A digital wall clock speaks volumes when it comes to modern design, so it could really complement the new living space you are moving into. Just imagine how cool a sleek, brushed aluminium or stainless steel digital clock might look on your wall. If you have a Zen bent, with bamboo vertical blinds, clean lines, sleek square furniture, digital wall clocks would fit right in.
Apart from appearances, there are also the practical advantages of a digital wall clock. For one, they are quicker and easier to read, especially for kids. Learning to tell the time is a breeze with digital readout clock, and will help to keep children on track with things like homework and limiting their time watching TV or similar activities. Children’s digital clocks are readily available too, and are a great thing to put in bedrooms or play and games rooms.
Then there is a big feature that makes digital wall clocks suitable to studies, or entertainment rooms: they don’t tick. Think about it – how annoying is the tick-tick-tick when you are trying to concentrate at reading or writing something important? A digital clock obviously won’t make any noise at all, so is ideally suited for these applications.
Finally, there is the issue of battery life. Modern digital displays use a fraction of the power that they used to, so your new digital clock will last for a long long time between battery changes. All battery powered clocks do need attention once a year or so, but many digital models will happily go 2 years and more.
Online stores are a great place to shop for a new clock. Like many electronic goods, retail markup is significant when you buy locally and most online seller will give you an excellent deal.
