DIGITAL CHESS CLOCK
07.02.17 at 20:36:45
 
Can anyone recommend a Digital Chess Clock that displays large fonts with high contrast?  I am visually impaired and I find that the standard digital chess clocks are difficult to read.

I have a ZMF II which helps as I have eye conditions which make the lack of contrast on normal digital clocks extremely hard work. They come in Red, Green or Orange I believe. The display is clear and there are 3 settable modes which are fairly easy to change. The one downside is that pre-programming the 2nd time control results in the number of moves played being displayed,. So I just stop the clock at 30 or 35 moves and add the time to each side. Does increments and everything.

Thank you for your response. I thought that if you use Tournament mode you will not ned to stop the clock to add the extra time.  The clock should go that automatically.  The number of moved played is displayed for just half a second before showing the time left.  It is encouraging that you are able to read the display with your eye condition. I am very tempted to buy one but I would like to try one first.
