The Skyscan atomic clock model 86722 keeps the current time and date by way of an transmitter without you having to set it yourself. The transmitter also reads the temperature outside and displays the information on your clock. Once you have your atomic clock, you might need directions on how to set it up and use it properly. You'll want your clock operating correctly before you rely on it to wake you up and guide you throughout your day. Testing the device yourself will save you time and have your clock running sharply in little time.
Slip your finger underneath the battery compartment flap on the back of the atomic clock and pull out to remove it. Insert two AA 1.5-volt batteries into the chamber in accordance with the polarity directions printed inside the chamber. Replace the battery cover. You will see the LCD screen light up with the indoor temperature, the time (blank), the date and the weekday.
Put your finger into the battery compartment groove of the transmitter and pull the cover away.
