The instructions say that you can set time, and day, month and year. However, there is no display for year so it is not possible to set this. When the day and month were set, the display shows the day of the week automatically but this is incorrect - for example today is shown as Month 10, Day 23, Day = Saturday (it should be Sunday). There is no way to change this. I am waiting to return it to the Avon representative.
