Talking Alarm Clock
The just-introduced AVT (Audio Visual Time) is made by Spartus. The clock can be programmed to tell you the time and the date in a clear, distinct voice. It also can be set to chime the quarter hour, half hour, and hour.
The Spartus is also an alarm clock with all the old and new features you could ever want. The alarm starts softly, then increases in volume. If you oversleep, the alarm repeats every nine minutes. You can set the time forward or backward and, after it is set, the clock announces the setting to be sure it is correct.
For two people who share the same clock but get up at different times, the clock has separate "his and hers" settings. In case of a power failure, a battery reserve keeps the time and alarm functioning.
The Spartus is being introduced in leading department stores. The AVT model has a suggested retail price of $37.25.
