We primarily use this timer during bed time. Our kids used to wake up at 4:30 to 6:30 and come into our room again and again, with no concept of 'Wake Up Time' (as most kids I realize). We set the timer to stay green until 7am, it turns yellow for 2 minutes (a warning it is almost wake up time) then it turns red, signalling wake time. If they have to use the bathroom, or need us for any reason, they know it is ok to leave the room. But in normal situations if it is not red, they go back into the bedroom and wait until it turns red. There was a learning curve for us and the kids, but this item works great! I would recommend the adapter, it requires 4 AA batteries for the lights, and lithium batteries for the clock, which burn down fast.

I used this product to manage me as a teacher with my mini lessons in Readers Workshop. I also used this timer to manage student workstations and to help children budget time while completing independent work. Unfortunately, like many other posters have mentioned, it can be unreliable. In June it worked just fine; however, when I returned to the classroom in August it was no longer working. Weird, right?! I thought it was the batteries so I replaced them with 4 brand new batteries. It still didn't work. After looking over the manual it said you would probably need to change the backup batteries when changing the other batteries. I searched high and low for the LR44 batteries (aka backup batteries) and finally found some. I replaced those as well and it still will not power on. This is very frustrating for me because I'm a classroom teacher and do not have the budget to keep replacing the timer each school year. :( The bottom line is that I would only recommend this device to somebody prepared to replace it yearly. I'm not that person because I already spend so much of my own money on my classroom and students.

Good timer with lots of uses!
About Me Parent
Comments about Time Tracker® Visual Timer & Clock:
We bought this timer as a visual reminder for meetings so time didn't pass by, there was a visual reminder which has sounds to notify the changing of sections. Although there is a volume switch we have always used the Time Tracker with the volume on. We have since found a hundred other uses for it. We have timed dinner with it, got ready to go out and even homework. The timer sections can be used for a few seconds or for an hour the options are endless and although getting the correct combination to get into the menu and setting it up can be tricky to start with after a few uses you soon pick it up. We use the Time Tracker as a fantastic visual behaviour monitor.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worth Every Penny
By Sergeant Dad
from Allentown PA
We have used this as a shower timer for our school-aged children, from elementary to high school. It's a great way to keep them on track when they would otherwise be daydreaming or dozing in the shower. It's saved us money as well, in the form of reduced water and electricity usage. It can handle light water spillage and heavy humidity, is easy to use, and good and LOUD when you need it to be. (It does have a volume control, but if you knew my kids in the morning you'd know it's always on loud). The battery life with daily use is about three to four months, but it only takes 4 AA batteries, and it does have an adaptor if you really need it to run on AC.
Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback!

Awesome for Adult Learners
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
About Me Manager
The Trainers in my Department use this product to keep adult learners on task for role-playing, sales presentation compilations, and other activities that require group work and/or competition within a tight agenda. At first, this product was a little difficult to use/program, which frustrated some of my team members; however, once you get it going, it is an asset to the classroom. I like it so much, I'm ordering another for an upcoming Corporate Training session for which I am preparing.

Mealtime no longer takes forever! Yea!
By Brooke's Mom
from Plano, Texas
About Me Education Oriented, First Time Parent, Working Parent
Ever since our little one started eating "real food" mealtime has taken forever. Almost every meal was spent with my husband and I refocusing her to eat her food. Age appropriate, yes. Fun for the family? No. My mom gave this product to our kid for her second birthday. Even at two she gets it. She loves the colored lights and sounds. We haven't had an epic mealtime since. We remind her when the color changes and that's it. When the red light blinks, dinner is over. Simple and effective. I hope it lasts a long time because I see it being used for homework, cleaning, baths, brushing teeth even. Easy to program and use. One thing I would improve, however, is to put the program buttons on the bottom instead of the side. Buttons in full view are just too tempting for a little kid.

Excellent product, even for high school
By Tutoring Ed
from Dallas, TX
About Me Collector, Education Oriented
The product is excellent! It engages children easily and keeps them focused as the timer's lights blink on and off from green, to yellow, to the ominous red. They really get a kick out of the timer's "Time's Up!" voice. The timer seems to work with high school students (with which I work the most) and their time management has improved.It's great how it's durable, portable, lightweight, and digital. I wish it had a rechargeable battery pack (it can really drain even the best-quality batteries if used constantly) and the ability to record customized messages. However, the product gets the job done and is fun and easy to use. Even adults have asked if they can use it for their own.

Helps with adult ADHD
By Scott T
from Torrance, CA
I bought this to help me with time management. I have adult ADHD and have a dissociative disorder and I lose track of time often. This product helps me work leisurely when green to derive general solutions to a problem, buckle down and get the bulk of the work one when yellow, and fine-tune and close down when red. It's also great to prepare for timed exams in college.
