Multi-timer alarm clock

Post by uncle »

Years ago I came across a Windows desktop alarm clock that allowed you to set multiple times, ie.every 20 mins. Now I can’t find it. Does anyone know of such a clock? Thank you all (Free is always appreciated)

wow, that was quick. I should have indicated I'm using Windows 8.1. To be more specific, what I"m hoping for is upon turning on PC, alarm will ring automatically every 20 mins.

See if Alarm++ does what you want. The free version has some limitations.

Found a real simple alarm with repeating reminder: Big Stretch Reminder, To quote from Readme:

"Big Stretch Reminder Program Readme

1. What is "Big Stretch"?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Big Stretch is a free simple reminder tool that prompts a user to take
regular breaks and helps prevent the symptoms of RSI.( epetitive strain injury) Alternatively it
can be a simple reminder program to tell you when it's your coffee
break!

Big Stretch allows you to:

- Set the amount of time between breaks.
- Choose between RSI tips or your own message at break time.
- Select the reminder style, balloon, popup or micro-break.( a micro-break window, which pops up over what you’re doing and counts down for you.)
- Pick the level of intrusiveness (depending on strictness).
- Optionally pick a sound for your reminder.
- Choose to increase reminders automatically to suit your work rate.
- Optionally display a countdown indicator icon in the tray.
- Postpone micro-breaks if your busy."
