If we want to do something in a certain period of time and want to get a reminder, for example to place a bid on eBay, we don't have to set an alarm clock, we can simply enter a certain time limit into the timer function on the Xiaomi smartphone. After the timer starts, the time runs down and automatically notifies us with a ring tone that can be selected previously

The timer can be set to the second up to 23:59:59 hours, minutes and seconds, and can be paused and reset at any time.
