Atomic Low Vision Watches Adjust Automatically for Daylight Saving Changes

With the end of Day Light Saving this past weekend many of you had to reset your watches, but not my father-in-law. When looking for a new low vision watch for him, we wanted to not only make it easy for him to tell the time, but to set the time. An atomic watch does just that.

A radio signal from the U.S. Atomic Clock in Ft. Collins, Colorado is received by the watch to automatically set for the accurate time in your time zone. Atomic watches will also accommodate not only Daylight Saving Time changes but leap years as well.

The initial set up requires that you select your time zone and then you will see the hands automatically spinning until the watch is set to the correct time. This may take up to 20-30 minutes and your low vision friend or family member may need your help with the initial set up.

These low vision watches are often described as "set it and forget it" making it easier for those with macular degeneration to manage the time on their watches without the assistance of others. Just another little way for your friend or family member to maintain independence.
