NEVER INCORRECTLY SET ALARM CLOCK

Invention by:

This invention embodies the capability of an alarm clock or a wrist watch to give the user an audio alert or notification when the alarm is set for a time that is greater than twelve hours away. This new functionality will help prevent mistakenly setting the alarm clock for 5:00 PM when the intended time for the alarm was 5:00 AM.

When the alarm is activated, the clock would check the current time against the alarm time to verify if the alarm time is under twelve hours away. If the alarm is more than twelve hours away, the user will be alerted. Even if the user intentionally sets the alarm clock for a time more than twelve hours ahead, the user will be reminded for when the alarm is set-a very useful reminder feature.
