Analarm is a discreet and effective analog alert watch with its interface modelled on the iconic alarm clock. When the alert is activated, a small motor creates a vibration on the wrist, similar to mobile phone vibrations, instead of sound. Its intelligence is in how simple it is to use. Unlike other alarm watches that are set through through many layers, Analarm’s interface is simple and straightforward. The alarm is set simply by moving the alarm hand to the desired time and lifting the alert button.
The vibration is a subtle pulsation with no audible sound. It is enough to wake up someone without affecting their partner; for daily alerts; and for daily reminders.
