Inspirational Design of the Week: Durr, A Watch That Reminds you of the Value of Time

At first glance, this watch doesn’t look very useful — there is no face, no numbers, and no hands to give you any indication of what time of day it is. So why do we love this design so much?

This watch vibrates every five minutes to refocus the wearer’s attention and make sure they are aware of how long they have been doing the task at hand. Skrekstore  came up with this idea as a way to make people appreciate their time more fully. When time is flying by, you are prompted not to lose track and when things seem to be dragging on you are reminded that it hasn’t been too long at all.

For the final product the team came up with the perfect interval to keep you aware without being annoying, as well as the perfect vibration to get your attention without disrupting your process. As well, the simple band and pastel colored “faces” are a great combination of minimal and fun.
