The 10 Best Digital Wall Clocks
This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in February of 2018. Whether you're trying to increase the productivity of a busy office or help aging loved ones read the time so they can take medications on schedule, one of these digital wall clocks can fit the bill. Many of our options have large, easy-to-read displays that show a variety of information, including days of the week and ambient temperatures, and some also boast alarms and USB charging ports.

As with most things digital, accuracy is the dominating factor. These wall clocks are not only accurate, but have easy to read displays and multiple functions not usually found on their analog counterparts. That being said, digital options don't seem to carry the same finesse or style as many traditional wall clocks. In this most recent update, we selected two replacements that we hope will bridge the gap.
The Marathon Round is an 8-inch option that certainly looks the part, and is available in either black or stainless-steel. It displays the time in either 12 or 24-hour format, the date, and the ambient temperature, and can be wall or desk mounted. The Edup Home 3D has a very minimalist design that uses LEDs to display only digits, however, it isn't lacking in functionality, as the remote control can be used to select the alarms, temperature, and stopwatch, or adjust brightness levels.

Many of the options listed here are specifically targeted towards elderly users who struggle to read smaller clocks, and who may need periodic reminders to take medication. If you're shopping for such a person, make sure that it's easy for them to read, program, and use, as some boast extra features that could confuse seniors. You may also want to invest in a pill dispenser as well.
If you're looking for something for a loved one suffering from dementia or a similar affliction, models like the Svinz 3 are a smart choice. They include all the relevant information that patients struggling with memory loss need in addition to the time, such as the day and date. Having that information readily available can help stave off panic, while also saving you from having to answer the same questions over and over.
