This credit card–size clock is so small and lightweight that you'll never want to be without it.


Signals from the German, Japanese, U.S., and U.K. atomic clocks keep it automatically accurate in cities around the globe; and a built-in alarm with snooze function assures you're up and ready to explore whether you've camped outdoors or in a country inn.


Automatically adjusts for daylight saving time and features an easel display and backlight for easy nighttime viewing.


Please note: This clock receives signals from four different transmitters. The U.S. clock covers all four time zones in the contiguous 48 states. (It will not work in Alaska and Hawaii.) The U.K. clock covers all of that country. The German clock covers most of Western Europe. The Japanese clock covers most of Japan and some of South Korea. Reception can also be affected by weather and atmospheric conditions.


  • Battery included.
  • 3 1/4"W x 2 1/4"H x 1/4"D; 2 oz.

        Comments about National Geographic Mini Global Atomic Clock:

        I lost a similar clock on a trip and found this one much smaller, lighter, and easier to use. I like the atomic feature so that I won't have to change the time when I'm traveling.

        I live in PST. When opened clock had MST and stayed there, even though I carried it to Europe. Would not budge from MST. Very complicated and I could not figure out how to fix. I returned for credit.

        Too complicated to set up

            Comments about National Geographic Mini Global Atomic Clock:

            I planned to use this clock for travel, but had to abandon this idea and got a different travel clock. This one is cute, but too complicated to set up. So I used it in my office just as a plain clock. It worked fine, until the battery went dead. When I replaced the battery, the clock set itself to the Mountain time. By then I lost the manual, and cannot figure out how to set the clock to Eastern time. So the clock is useless now, unless I'll find those instructions.

                The advertising copy made it sound much better than it was. Am back to using my old clock which cost less. See complaints above. There are no pros. Only bought because if was from National Geo. Will know better next time.

                Complex Alarm that didn't always wake me

                  Comments about National Geographic Mini Global Atomic Clock:

                  I'm a frequent traveler, domestic and international. An alarm clock should wake you, and do so at the proper time. This one didn't always wake me, because it's volume is too low. And I found it not easy to program it for a specific time, when your travels take you across time zones.

                    Cons

                    • Difficult to reset
                    • Must reset frequently

                    Best Uses

                      Comments about National Geographic Mini Global Atomic Clock:

                      There is only one atomic clock signal in the U.S. which is Mountain time. After you receive the exact correct time you have to manually reset the clock to your time zone (for example, Central). The clock resets itself automatically, back to Mountain Time, every few days so you have to reset it to your time zone again. Not very useful if you plan to use as an alarm clock.
