Tracking Time with the Clock App

Your Gabb Phone has a handy Clock app. Sure, you can use it to check what time it is, or know if you need to leave for dance practice soon. But you can do a lot more with it too, like set alarms, use a stopwatch, and more.

Here are the coolest things to know about it:

Adding a widget to your home screen

The Clock app is a popular widget to add to your home screen. This adds a large display of the clock so you can quickly and easily see the time.

To add a widget, tap the blank space of your Gabb Phone’s home screen. Tap add_circleWidgets and check out your options under Clock. Tap and hold the widget you want to add, then drop it on your home screen.

Setting an alarm

You can set alarms in your Clock app to wake you up in the morning or remind you about things. To add a new alarm, tap in the Alarms tab of the app. Set the time and choose your settings.

Repeat: Do you want your alarm to repeat? If you wake up for school at the same time every morning, you could set an alarm for Monday to Friday. You could also set a bedtime reminder to make sure you get plenty of sleep every night.

Snooze: Will you be able to snooze your alarm? If snooze is turned on, you’ll be able to tell your phone to stop the alarm and start it again in a few minutes. Set how long you want to “snooze”  before your alarm goes off again, and how many times you want to repeat snooze until the alarm stops going off for good.

Alarm tone: Set the sound you want your alarm to play when it goes off.

Vibrate: Tell the app if you want the phone to vibrate when the alarm goes off.

Label: Give your alarm a name (ex. Wake up for school).

Tap Save in the top right of the alarm screen to save your alarm.

Gabb pro Tips

Not sure what to set alarms for? Here are some things a lot of kids like to use this for:

  • Wake up (Set your alarm to make sure that you have time to get ready and eat a healthy breakfast before school.)
  • Bedtime (Give yourself enough time to brush your teeth and put on your PJ’s before getting into bed.)
  • A homework reminder (Set it to go off at 5:00pm every afternoon to make sure you do your homework)
  • Get ready for practice (Play a sport? Set an alarm to remind you to get dressed for it before your parents take you.)

Turning alarms on or off

From the Alarm tab of your Clock app, tap the button to the right of each saved alarm to turn it on or off. When you turn an alarm on, your phone will tell you how long it will be until the alarm goes off.

Using the stopwatch

Use the Stopwatch tab to time how long something takes – like how fast you can run a mile! Use the controls at the bottom of the screen to start, pause, and reset your stopwatch.

Learning multiplication tables? Time yourself to see how quickly you can get through them. Or use the stopwatch to see if you or your dad are a faster runner!

Using the timer

Use the timer to count down from a set amount of time. The Timer tab has some pre-saved timers, and you can also add your own by tapping add_circle_outline. Set the amount of time for your timer and give it a label. Tap OK to save.

Changing clock settings

Tap the three dots in the top right of your Clock app to change your settings.

Alarm duration: How long do you want your alarm to ring before it automatically turns off?

Sound in silent mode: Turn this on if you want your alarm to sound out loud even when your phone is on silent.

Keypress settings: When your alarm goes off, you can press the power or volume buttons on the side of your phone to either snooze or turn off the alarm.

Timer tone: Change the sound that plays when your timer goes off. This could help you not confuse your timer and your alarm if you’re using both.

Vibrate when ringing: Turn this on if you want your phone to vibrate when an alarm or timer goes off.

Checking world time

Visit the World clock tab of your Clock app to view the time in different parts of the world. Tap add_circle to add and save a new time location. You can use this if you have a friend or family member who lives in a different time zone from you. That way, you’ll always know what time it is in their neck of the woods!
