Every iPod with a screen has a clock to help you keep track of the time, an alarm to remind you of important events or prevent you from oversleeping, and a sleep timer that will automatically turn off your iPod after a set interval.
If you have a Fifth Generation iPod (iPod with video) or iPod nano, your clock is actually a World Clock; you can create multiple clocks set for different cities around the world, each with its own alarm. The Fifth Generations also have a stopwatch for you FitSugar types.
For tips on how to use the time features in your iPod, just
- Select Extras > Clock > Alarm Clock. Fifth Generation iPod and iPod nano users, choose Extras, choose any clock, then choose Alarm Clock.
- To enable the alarm clock, choose Alarm to toggle the selection to On.
- To set the alarm time, choose Time, then scroll the Click Wheel to set the time that you want the alarm to sound.
- To choose a sound source, choose Sound, then choose Beep to play the alarm through the internal speaker, or choose a playlist to play music from it.
Once you set an alarm, you'll see a bell icon appear on the right side of the screen in the Clock menu, or next to that clock's time display with a Fifth Generation iPod. If you set a Beep alarm, the alarm sounds briefly and will turn itself off after it sounds. If you set a playlist alarm, the music will start playing when the alarm goes off and continue until you press the Play/Pause button to pause it.
