Turn your Alexa device into any one of a variety of audible clocks
Turn Alexa into a ship’s bell. A ship’s bell starts at one bell and counts up every half hour to eight bells.
The use of bells to mark the time at sea started as early as the 15th century. A ship’s bell tracks the "watches" on board a ship. A new watch starts at noon, 4 pm, 8 pm, midnight, 4 am, and 8 am. The end of one watch and start of the next watch is marked by the bell being struck eight times.
"Eight bells and all's well."
Hear a different train every hour on the hour. Steam engines, diesel engines, bells, whistles, and the occasional clackity clack of the tracks.
This special clock changes with the season.
Take your mind on a summer vacation and enjoy the relaxing sounds of a tropical ocean beach. Celebrate the top of each hour with waves splashing, sea birds squawking, and a warm breeze "blowing" in through your Echo.
