I got one for my wife over 4 years ago (pre-diagnosis) as she was constantly asking the day and the date. She never once looked at the clock which was just as well as it was always going wrong. Then she just stopped asking and has never bothered since. I binned the defective item (the clock I mean!) a long time ago.Yes, I bought one of those. The only person who looks at it to see what day it is, is me.
