Digital clocks will keep time at least as well as a manual mechanical clock.
So you can tell the minute. STANDARD!
Clocks have 0, 2 or 3 hands: 0 (digital clocks), 2 (hour and minute), 3 (hour, minute and second).
I have a digital clock; I find it easier to read than analog clocks with hands and regularly spaced numbers.
Soleus Watches are one of the best brands on the market today. They are made with the hands and also digital. Most sports watches are digital in order to time oneself while performing various sports.
Because digital clocks don't have second hands, the flashing colons imitate it instead. Count how many there are in 1 minute, you should get 60.
Clocks are personified to have several of the same features as humans. For example, clocks have a face and two hands, like humans do. Clocks can also be grandfathers!Clocks and people can't go back in time.
There ares everal options which meet this criteria:Digital clocks (or digital displays) have numbers but no hands (some use sliding or tumbling numbers cards in place of the LED or LCD to show time),Sundials have no hands only a shadow,Hour glasses have no hands,Old analogue clocks on town towers may have just one hand not "hands",Some braille watches for the blind use raised pins instead of handsSome watches verbally state the time in response to a button push.
Different clocks have hands of different sizes.
Unfortunately, not all clocks are circular. The reason that most clocks are circular is because of convenience. As clocks rely on the rotation of the hands to tell time, it is simply easier for the numbers to be arranged in a circular formation around it.
It started originally with analog clocks. Setting the hands to 10 minutes after 10 o'clocked made them in an upward V shape. Studies had shown that most people related that to the open arms of a hug. Consequently sales of clocks increased when the hands were set to 10:10. The tradition simply never changed when the digital age struck.
