Most of the connected clocks rotate under the same concept: offer us a notification Center with what is happening on our phone. Some include additional work but we can say that the common denominator of all is to send short messages with announcements of all kinds. Today we speak of one of them, but with a somewhat different concept.
Then focuses on a task: let us know when we are very stressed. No notifications of emails or messages, simply gives us a rating from one to ten with our level of stress. A very visual and clear way of knowing how we are in each moment to act correctly and not upset us most when something affects us.
The clock uses a pulse sensor to monitor variations and give us an estimate of the amount of stress we have in the body in that moment. The idea is good and fairly simple device, Although it remains to be seen how accurate is the measurement that performs.
Aesthetically, it has a metal body and a belt that should be universal by type of bandwidth that has. The screen is very basic, what makes us think that we will offer much autonomy. In addition to point out the stress, it also serves as a quantifier to know steps give each day and calories we burn.
We’ll see if with a proposal so niche they manage to gain a foothold. Moment 18,400 dollars in order carry proceeds of reach the 250,000 in little more than three weeks. The cheapest model amounts to 160 euros (including postage). All indications are that if the campaign goes well it will be later at a price of 200 euros.
We’ll see if they get it, the idea is good but they are not the first to create a personal device designed to measure the stress. As we said before, being a product so specific they will be complicated, nor speak get resembling figures which is coming to Pebble Time.
