VELDT believes in the concept of a life tech balance and has been working to make it happen, aiming to improve the rhythm of people living in today’s stressful lives. Minimizing the overflow of smartphones can help avoiding stress & anxiety caused by unnecessary feeds and updates, which can help users to enjoy life in better ways.
Its new watch ‘Veldt Luxture’, announced at Baselworld 2017, is a small, thin luxury watch featuring indirect LED lighting underneath the bezel that displays information synched to a smartphone. The device boasts a ‘Life Rhythm Assistant’ feature which keeps track of the exact time and duration users have been exposed to sun-light, as well as physical activities and sleeping time.
The LED lights notify only important messages and appointments as well as hour-to-hour weather information, all in sync with the user’s smartphone. Light exposure time, activity levels and sleep are all accurately logged by sensors, and then visually presented in a graph. “We wanted to design a stylish wristwatch, but at the same time help people create a positive spiral in this age of the internet,” said CEO Jin Nonogami.
VELDT team is development devices that integrate features like activity trackers for collecting data, with a functional design and a clear monozukuri concept – the coexistence of engineering and craftsmanship, making a “display-less computing” feasible.
