With Emerson's award-winning and patented SmartSet technology, the flashing "12:00" display is a thing of the past. The CKS1800 clock radio automatically sets itself on the first use to the correct year, month, date, day, and time. The clock radio features a large, easy-to-read LED display with dimmer control so it is easy on your eyes in the dark. The alarm can be programmed to operate on weekdays only, weekends only, or all seven days of the week. The alarm displays the month and date with the touch of a button. Set the alarm to wake you to your favorite AM/FM music or news station, or to the buzzer. The clock radio adjusts itself automatically for Daylight Savings Time and Leap Year, as well as maintains the correct time when the power returns after power outages. Getting out of bed will no longer be a chore with the help of the CKS1800.
