Bedol Review



Keeping up with the time is no longer a problem with digital clocks, watches, phones, and even television. But the things we use to tell time are making carbon footprints upon the Earth. The more eco-friendly we are now, the cleaner Earth will be for future generations to tell time.

You can keep up with technology but still be "green" with Bedol! Unique and original designs are putting Bedol on the map because they are looking forward to a greener planet. With having been featured in Seventeen, InStyle, as well as many television shows, they have been available in stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.

They are most known for their Bedol Water Clock, with different designs. The Eco-Friendly Water-Powered Clock works on 100% natural power. Just fill it with ordinary tap water, and you are good to go for 10-12 weeks. No need to set it next time you change it because it features a built-in memory chip. All of their clocks have a 12-hour or 24-hour time setting.

If you're looking for an alarm clock without all the hassle of it becoming unplugged or turned off because of electricity, the Bedol Alarm Water Clock is your best bet. It has easy to use buttons, so you don't have to worry about finding the instructions everytime you want to set the alarm. It's even shaped like a water drop!
Their newest addition is the Water Clock Smiley Alarm. The design, as per their website, is inspired from the moment a drop of water hits the ground. It comes in 6 different colors: red, green, orange, blue, yellow, and charcoal.

For other timepieces that are just as stylish as the water clocks, check out their Clock section! They have clocks that are shaped like leaves, clocks that are made from glass, and even clocks that project the time! Of course, Bedol makes other fantastic products such as Gadgets, Purses/Handbags, and School Supplies.
So make sure to put your best foot foward and help live "greener" with Bedol!

You can find Bedol on Facebook and Twitter.

BUY
You can purchase the Squirt Bedol "Blue" Water Clock for $26.00.

WHAT I THOUGHT
I have something to admit: I am bad when it comes to changing the batteries in the clocks. I have clocks that have stopped, are running late, and running early. So I have to use my phone to figure out what time it is.

With Bedol, I have absolutely no problem finding out what time it is! First, let me say that the Bedol Water Clock "Little Squirt Blue" (How adorable is the color name?) is a genius invention! No batteries? No winding? No power cords? Perfect! I just filled it with some tap water to where I was supposed to and once I put the cap back on, I noticed that display was showing 1:00 AM. Granted, it was more like noon, but the minute you put the water in, the display comes on.

The only problem I had was trying to set it to the right time. Like some clocks, if you overshot the minutes or hours, you have to go around again. For some reason, setting the alarm clock was easiest for me. You do have to set it every time but since I get up at 6 every morning, it's no big deal.

As far as mess-free, that depends on where you put it and if you have pets. Smokie, my 9-year-old Tortoiseshell kitty, likes to sit on my nightstand while I'm working, and just watch me. Well, one afternoon, she accidentally knocked the clock over. A little water came out of the hole you put water in, but not a lot. If you have the cap on tight, it shouldn't make a big mess. And how do you know when to change the water? When your display goes out (obviously) or it doesn't seem to be keeping time. Easy peasy!

It's adorable, great for those who forget to change batteries often, and super easy to use.

I was NOT compensated for this review. I received a FREE Bedol Water-Powered Clock to review. All thoughts/opinions are my own.
