The Ultimate Timer allows you to have the traditional "beeping" sound OR a "vibrating" alert to let you know when the time set has finished counting. The vibrate option allows for use in situations where the traditional beep option would be distracting to others. When set on "vibrate," it does make a slight buzzing noise in a low tone.
The Ultimate Timer will count up like a stopwatch OR it can be set for a certain amount of time (like 15 minutes) and will count down to zero. To choose your notification setting, there is a switch located on the back of the Ultimate Timer, just below the battery compartment. Slide the switch all the way to the left for the "beep" option, and all the way to the right for the "vibrate" option.
The Ultimate Timer has a special reminder message in purple from FlyLady printed on it: "You can do anything for 15 minutes." This handy, little timer fits right in the palm of your hand. It comes with a built-in clip,and magnet, and stand. Its simple, sturdy design is just what you need for those 15 minute blessings and missions. The Ultimate Timer can be set for up to 99 minutes and 59 seconds. One AAA battery is included.
