In the modern and hectic society of today, time management is key to maintaining your life’s schedules. A digital wall clock can give you a more precise time of the day right down to the second which is more than what an analogue one can do.
Some of the best digital wall clocks will even go further and include much needed features of an alarm, weather forecast or temperature within the room.
Our 5 Best Digital Wall Clocks Reviewed
5. Precision PREC0097
- Radio Controlled – Time accuracy is maintained as the clock updates itself
- Extra Features – Displays the date, day and temperature with clear titling so there’s confusion on the date
- Versatile Display Options – Flat back to enable it to stand against a flat surface or wall mounted
Offering function and a practical style, the Precision PREC0097 has many great features to help you get by with one glance. Displaying a digital LCD 24 hour format, date, day of the week and temperature with clear labels for each separate section, it makes the clock easy to read. You can set an alarm but it’s not loud enough to be heard from across the room.
Little maintenance is required as the clock is radio-controlled to an Atomic clock in Cumbria so it will sync and update itself regularly and during daylight saving times. The large size of this digital wall clock with its big black surrounding frame allows the clock to stand out modestly from your wall.
4. Acctim Stratus
- Smartlite Technology – Display will automatically glow to enable night time viewing
- Versatile Mounting – Can be mounted on the wall or stood on the desk with the kickstand
- Lightweight – Can be hung on any wall with just a picture hook
- Split Second Accuracy – Radio controlled which updates on a regular basis
With a clear display that’s readable from all angles, the Acctim Stratus’ display proves to be of great use during the night thanks to its soft illuminating glow. This allows you to see the time even when it’s pitch black and the glow doesn’t disturb your sleep either.
It features a multi-function display of the day, date, temperature, option of 12 or 24 hour format and moon phase. There’s an alarm function but unfortunately, no snooze button.
You’re probably wondering why anyone would want to know the phase of the moon unless you’re a werewolf. But some people follow this because they believe the moon affects their body, mind and emotions. Or it would be helpful to know when the moon is full if you want to plan something romantic. This is one of the few modern digital wall clocks with this feature but its timing is pretty much on the ball.
3. AcuRite 75100C

Powered by an extra long 9ft power cord, you’ll never have to worry about batteries and if there’s a power outage, the AcuRite 75100C remembers the time. It can also be used with 2 x AA batteries.
There are two keyholes for easy mounting which also provides stability or it can be freestanding with its sturdy kickstand. For the price, it’s a bit more than others but it’s one of the best digital wall clocks with an extra large digital time.

The LCD time is a fairly good size which is easy to read and there are small displays of the calendar, moon phase, temperature and weather trend indicator which predicts the weather temperature.
There’s a keyhole to enable the clock to be mounted, it will take a bit of adjusting to get it to sit straight though. Otherwise, it can be stood on a flat surface with the wide and balanced kickstand. Overall, this digital wall clock is clear to read and is a good size at 19 x 24 cm.

5 Reasons to Choose a Digital Wall Clock
If you’re still torn over whether to get a digital wall clock or not, here’s some reasons to sway you in the ‘yes’ direction:
1. More Features
Expanding on an earlier point, digital clocks have more features on display. This can include the day, date, temperature or an additional time of another time zone. These features are useful for anyone to see at a glance without having to check their phone or computer when they’re in a rush to leave the house.
2. Easy to Read
Unlike many analogue clocks, digital clocks are usually designed with a backlight or glow function installed so you can see the time in the dark. More modern digital wall clocks have a dimmable option to make the backlight less bright so it’s not too overpowering in the dark. It’s handy when you wake in the middle of the night and want to see the time without allowing too much light into your eyes.
Without a seconds hand on a digital clock, this means there’s no annoying ticking sound to remind you not to waste time. This will prove to be much needed during sleep or in moments of much needed silence.
4. Alarm Clock Function
Many digital clocks have an alarm option installed and some will have an extra one. This can save you from having to buy a separate alarm clock or use your phone which some can be quite quiet or not go off if your phone is switched off. As a bonus, it will definitely get you out of bed as you will have to get up to switch the alarm off on the clock.
5. More Accurate
With a display of the hour, minute and second of the day, you can’t get any more accurate than this. It ensures you’re never late as you’ll be better at managing your time. This can also come in handy if you need to time something but don’t have a stopwatch on you.
