Pros: Light, small, accurate, shows different time zones
Traveling would be so much nicer if we could just sleep and rise when we felt like it but that is seldom the case! There are always trains to catch, activities to get to, tours that start way too early, etc. Since nobody want to miss out on anything, a reliable alarm clock is a must! I have used the Eagle Creek World Travel Clock for a long time and it has never let me down yet.
WHY CHOOSE THIS CLOCK?
There are a lot of reasons I like the Eagle Creek World Travel Clock with the first one being the fact comes from Eagle Creek. I am a HUGE fan of theirs and that alone made me consider this clock in the first place. I have bought a lot of products from them and they have always been top notch. You can pick this little baby up for around $20.
You can EASILY keep track of multiple time zones. These are around the clocks face so you are able to quickly tell without having to reset your clock to that time zone. Of course you could set it to the time zone you were traveling in and then quickly tell what time it is at home. Why is this something you want to know? We use it when traveling through different zone on one trip as well as needing to know what time it is back home before placing a call there. I know, we could simply subtract 8 hours (or whatever) but it is nice to have it right there.
Note: The time zones are not listed, just many major places: Tokyo, New York, Paris, Dublin, Anchorage, London, Sydney etc. This is great unless the place you are traveling to is not listed, then you would have to locate one of the cities that is in the same time zone.
I like the design it is small,(2.5" x 2.5") lightweight and yet sturdy enough to survive trip after trip after trip! It has a flip- top cover to protect it that folds to form a stable base when set up. It runs on one Alkaline L1144 battery which is included.
Features a crescendo alarm with snooze option.This means no quick sudden loud BBBBBEEEEEEPPPPPPP but more of a click clicK cliCK clICK cLICK CLICK which is a much nicer way to be woken up!
It is easy to set which can be a real pain on some other small clocks. With the Eagle Creek World Travel Clock you set it by simply moving the ring on the outside of the clock face.
If for some reason, the clock broke or stopped working, it comes with an lifetime warranty -- hard to beat that!

I have used the Eagle Creek World Travel Clock on many different holidays -- from camping in the woods to apartments in Paris to ski trips in the mountains to weeks on our boat and more. It is one of the items that stays pre-packed in my travel bag for whatever adventure comes our way. It is truly one of my "have to have" items when traveling.
I especially like being able to tell the time in different areas at one time. We can travel from one time zone to another, never change the time from our "home" time and still be able to see what time it is where we are at.
The only possible negative thing might be that it is plastic - a strong plastic but plastic not the less. Therefore it may break easier than another stronger form but then it would be heavier. That being said, I can't really think of ANY reason NOT to buy the Eagle Creek World Travel Clock and am giving it a solid 5 stars!
