Why wooden digital clock?

Actually there are two questions here: why digital clock and why wooden clock.

Why digital clock?

Digital clock is made with modern technologies, and offering more features. Digital clock does not produce ticking sound, so your environment could keep quiet all the time. You need a quiet environment when you are sleeping, or working. While gear clock may just display the time, a regular digital clock could show you the time, date, week, temperature, and even humidity. The LED light shows those information in a pleasant, gentle way. Moreover, you could set alarms on digital clocks to wake you up on the morning or remind you to do something at some other time.

Why wooden clock?

While there is nothing wrong with plastic digital clocks, or clocks made of other materials, wooden clocks are not just functional but also aesthetic. Their wooden texture brings the breath of nature into your room. It decorates your room.

As you can see, the wooden clocks do look different. The time,date,humidity, temperature are displayed on a piece of rounded-corner wood cube with pleasant LED light.

There are two display modes available: One mode shows humidity all the time, and time, date, temperature alternately, and the other mode always shows time, temperature, and humidity. Personally, I prefer the first mode, since it tells me more information. Some similar products on the market shows week instead of humidity, like this one. Choose the one you like. As I mentioned above, a digital clock shows much more information than traditional clock.

Like many other LED products, this digital clock’s brightness is also adjustable. You need to press some buttons on its back to choose the brightness level you want. While this clock is already a great product, the brightness level adjustment feature still has some room to improve. A touch control button to switch the brightness level could significantly improve the user experience, just like some LED desk lamps.
This clock could be powered both by 4 AAA dry batteries and by USB cable. We recommend you to use USB cable as regular power supply and use the AAA batteries in case of any power outage, so that you won’t have to reset the clock after a power outage.

While LED lighting is already an great energy-saving technology, this clock still offers a power saving feature. If you switch the clock to the power saving mode, the display only lasts 15 seconds and disappear. If you need it to display, just clap near it, or touch it to activate the display.

Pros
  • Wooden texture
  • Display much information
  • Voice/touch controllable power saving mode
  • Adjustable brightness level
Cons
  • Brightness level adjustment is not touch controllable

The wooden style of this clock is a little different. But the bigger differences are on functionalities. As I mentioned above, It would be great if we can touch control to switch the brightness level, since this is a frequently used feature. For example, we may need to dim the light before go to sleep. A good news is, this clock supports touch control brightness level adjustment. You can touch the button on its top to switch different brightness level, or turn off the display completely.

Another improvement on this clock is the time memory function. The time and other information on above #1 clock would be lost if it’s not powered: no batteries, and no USB power supply. In that case, you would have to reset the clock. One of the common complains about the wooden digital clock is, the setup is not straightforward, or even difficult, and obviously you don’t want to do it many times. With this clock, its built-in battery would memorize the time even if the clock is turned off. Although the setup is actually not that difficult, and the steps on user manual is easy to follow, the time memory function is still a big plus.

Pros
  • Different wooden texture
  • Display much information
  • Adjustable brightness level
  • Brightness level adjustment is touch controllable
  • Time memory function
Cons
  • No humidity or week information
  • No power saving mode (Personally I don’t think this mode is that necessary)

As you can see, two of the big differences between this clock and above 2 clocks is, it’s triangle on both ends, and it’s black. But again, the bigger differences are on its functionalities.

As I mentioned above, the brightness level adjustment on #2 clock is touch controllable, which is a significant improvement. I’m impressed that the designer of this clock moved even one more step: the brightness level of this #3 clock can be switched automatically as per the time (daytime or night) with its smart brightness transition feature. As I said on some other posts, I like automatic features even more than touch controlled or mobile/app controlled solutions, since with automatic feature you don’t need to do anything.

Pros
  • Different wooden texture and shape
  • Display much information
  • Automatically adjusted brightness level
  • Time memory function
  • power saving mode
Cons
  • No cons found yet

Well, maybe this clock should not be categorized as wooden digital clock because of its imitation marble appearance, but it is quite similar to other wooden digital clocks, both for appearance and for functionalities.

Besides its unique look, it also has time memory function and sound controllable power saving mode. A major difference is, it has three display modes.

Pros
  • Unique imitation marble appearance
  • Three display modes
  • Time memory function
  • power saving mode
Cons
  • Brightness level is not adjustable

Unlike above one, this clock can definitely be categorized as wooden digital clock, but it looks quite different to above ones. Yes, this vintage clock is handmade by skilled artisans with Soviet Union technology. This would be a great conversation starter when people see you have a different wooden digital clock, especially for those who love history.

Another difference is its price. It’s much more expensive than other regular wooden digital clock. Unlike other mass-produced wooden digital clock, this is handmade and the process usually takes over 30 hours and therefore you won’t see it everywhere, so the price is reasonable. Besides rarity, its art deco style also justifies the price.

Pros
  • Art deco style
  • Rarity
  • History
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Not display as much information as other wooden digital clocks
