The Black Strap Dual Voice Youth Talking Watch by Time Optics™ is the ideal gift idea or solution for those with low vision or blindness. The watch announces the time, day, date and year. Not only this, but it also features an alarm along with dual voices (male and female).
Its simplistic design makes it easy to operate. The watch contains more functions than a four-button watch yet only uses one. The digits on the face of the watch are incredibly well contrasted making it easy to read for those that are partially sighted. As far as size, the strap is adjustable and will easily fit all youth sized wrists.
Pressing the single button on the watch once causes the time to be announced. Twice, and the day, date, and year will be spoken. As mentioned above, the watch also features an alarm which can be easily set. When setting the spoken time, the visual time (on the analog face) will adjust itself accordingly.
The watch’s case is around 1.34 inches (34mm) in diameter, and the product comes packaged in a nice, vibrant yellow pouch. A manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty is also included.
