Not sure how this is possible

I set the timer to 40-minutes countdown mode at 1:30 PM. At 3:25 PM, it still showed 17 minutes left. Clearly I cannot count on this.

Incorrect Review- Sound Alert works fine

The sound alert for Kitchen Timer works fine, with one or more timers. Maybe his volume was too low or music too loud?
