The latest in a trend of devices aimed at preventing distraction, the MINIMUM smart wearable marries digital and analog to help users do more living in the real world and less being controlled by their devices. You might call it “anti-tech technology” in that it eliminates flashing screen notifications and ringing phones so our minds aren’t constantly drawn away.
The watch face, which features a minimalistic hour and minute indicators, utilizes an eINK display rather than OLED or LCD so, rather than being distracted by light, we get to our messages and emails when WE see fit. Another thoughtful feature is the alarm system which gradually increases in duration and volume so the user is progressively awakened and not shaken by an abrupt alert. With easy-to-use voice control and an intuitive single-dial interface, it’s equally stress-free to operate.
