A digital watch is an electrical item.


Clock and alarm

Having a digital watch in the player's main inventory, or wearing one, enables the in-game clock being displayed on the HUD.

Digital watches have an alarm that can be set to go off at a specific time each day. When the alarm goes off, the player will wake up from sleep, preventing them from sleeping past a certain time of day. The chime from a digital watch's alarm can attract zombies. Some digital watches will be found with an alarm already set, and may go off without notice unless the alarm is turned off.

Unlike with classic watches, digital watches display the date and weather on the HUD. This also means that, in the info tab, the player can see how long their character has been alive for. The temperature reading will change dependent on the environment. This can allow the player to assess the indoor temperature when entering a building.


A digital watch can be dismantled if the player has a screwdriver, which will result in one electronics scrap.
