Clocks Buying Guide

Ticktock: It's clock time. Clocks in the home wake us from sleep, keep us on track, help us monitor our schedules, and do so much more.

Types of Clocks

Types of Clocks

Clocks are essential, and ubiquitous, elements of our rooms. Bedside, they gently (or not so gently) wake us in the morning or from a weekend nap. In living spaces, they help us mark the hours until school or work, practice or bed. Elsewhere they may be more decorative, making a design statement while marking the time. There are loads of options for you to find the right clocks for every room in the house—alarm clocks, clock radios, cuckoo clocks, desktop clocks, floor and grandfather clocks, mantel clocks, projection clocks, wall clocks, and talking clocks.

Alarm Clocks

Alarm clocks may be powered by batteries or electricity. They are traditional in function, sounding off at the set alarm time.

Product Features

Product Features

Unlike appliances in the kitchen—some to cook, some to clean, some to preserve—all clocks have a similar purpose: keeping track of time. Therefore, just a few product features may impact your purchase. Those include power source—probably the biggest option to consider—as well as sound options, material, and expandability. Use this overview to carefully consider those factors before you buy.

Power Source

Most clocks are powered either by batteries or electric sources, or electricity backed up by battery power. Batteries mean portability, enabling you to move the clock from room to room, while a plug-in means reliability.

Sound Options

Clocks that announce the time—grandfather clocks, alarm clocks—may have different sound options. Make sure your choice is appropriate to your expectations and needs.

Material

Clocks can be made of nearly any material, from inexpensive plastic to hard-to-find hardwood. Finishes and patterns vary, too, as do colors and compositions. Choose one that fits with your decor and your style.

Expandability

Some clocks—particularly desktop, alarm, and clock radios—may have docking stations to attach a smartphone or MP3 player. That allows you to use your clock as small speaker or charger, too.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Even as our lives have become inundated with technology, clocks retain an essential and necessary function. We cannot do what we need to do—school, work, volunteer, cook—without noting the passage of time. And many clocks are affordable as well as decorative, making them good building blocks for most every room's decor. As you find the clock that works for you, review purchase considerations including size, time readability, and care. Here's help in this short guide.

Size

For diminutive alarm clocks and clock radios, size is less an issue than it is for larger items such as grandfather clocks. Before making an investment in an heirloom-style piece, make sure you have the space for it.

Time Readability

Particularly for tabletop versions that help to keep you on task or wake you from a slumber, it's important to be able to read the numbers on a clock. For more decorative pieces, readability may be less of an issue.

Care

Most clocks do just fine with a quick weekly dusting. Larger pieces, such as grandfather clocks, may require more intensive care, such as regularly oiling the parts.
