In the mornings I spend as much time watching the clock as I do getting ready, and if I just got up and got everything done, my morning routine would probably take half as long. Unfortunately, as a professional procrastinator that just isn’t gonna happen, but I can still appreciate the idea behind this Morning Countdown Clock.
It allows you to set two alarms, one for waking up and one for when you’re supposed to head out the door, and the clock will announce the remaining time at the 1 hour mark, the 45, 30, 20, 15, 10, 5, 3, 2, and one 1 minute marks, 30 seconds, 20 seconds and finally a 10 second countdown. It’s probably rather annoying, but I guess it’s supposed to be that way to keep you on time in the morning. $33 from the Japan Trend Shop in your choice of white or blue, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the time announcements might actually be in Japanese.
