Note: There is no need to press "Select" to get off of this screen, your cursor remains available on the sections below. Use the DPAD to move left or right to select the next section. Pressing select here will exit the program back to the main GCW-Zero interface.

Alarm (ALARM)

  • Use the Left/Right DPAD to move between "Sleep" and "Stop"
  • Hit the "Start" button on the option to either put the alarm to sleep or stop it.

Sleep seems to have no functionality. Why is it here?

IMPORTANT USAGE NOTE: You MUST be IN the Clock Application and in the ALARM section (with either Sleep or Stop highlighted) for the Alarm to sound when the correct time happens. If you are not in the clock application and within the alarm setting (i.e. having hit "start" while the red highlight is on the "ALARM" section) the timer will not sound till the NEXT time you enter the clock application and go to set the alarm.

Countdown Timer (TIMER)

  • Move the red cursor with the dpad till "TIMER" is highlighted in red.
  • Press "Start" to begin editing the Timer settings.
  • The timer represents Minutes and Seconds, so the maximum countdown time you can set is 1 Hour.
  • Use Left/Right on the DPAD to highlight the Minutes and Seconds, use the Up/Down on the DPAD to set the Minutes and Seconds for Countdown.
  • Use Left/Right on the DPAD to highlight "START" and hit the "Start" button while "START" is highlighted to start the countdown time.
  • Use Left/Right on the DPAD to highlight "STOP" to hit the "Start" button while "STOP" is highlighted to stop the countdown time. This PAUSES the countdown timer until START is hit again.
  • Press the "Select" button to exit the "TIMER" area and return to navigating the "Clock" program interface.

IMPORTANT USAGE NOTE: You MUST be IN the Clock Application and in the TIMER section (with either Sleep or Stop highlighted) for the Alarm to sound when the countdown reaches 0. If you exit the timer application (via "Select") before the timer sounds you have effectively cancelled the timer. The timer will look paused while still on the TIMER screen, however exiting and returning to clock will show the timer as reset to 3:00 (3 minutes). Returning to the Timer section (by pressing "Start" while "TIMER" Is highlighted) will reset the timer back to 3:00 (3 minutes) - the default value.
