Be present, without being late.
Prompt is an eyes-free timepiece that enables you to check the time without looking at it. A timepiece with no digits, no minute hand, no second hand — yet it keeps you present and prompt.
The anti-watch has five granted patents to provide approximate time notifications through haptic vibrations, which allow you to quickly and privately check the time — but only when you “ask” for it. Whether you choose to keep it in your pocket, in the palm of your hand, or wear it like a watch, the simple, modern design will help you navigate your busy day, promptly and professionally.
With reductionism at its core, Prompt’s design is pure and simple. It lacks the complexity of smartwatches and is truly unlike any other timepiece in the industry. With a concave face contour, Prompt perfectly fits into your thumb like a comfort pebble.
The anti-watch is encased in a substantial stainless steel and glass bezel. The bezel is comforting to hold, yet crisp and refined to the eye.
Time approximated via haptic feedback
Prompt relays the time via discreet haptic feedback, or vibrations, that are triggered by you — it will only give you the time if you ask for it.
Prompt operates in quadrants of 15, 30, 45 and 60. For example, two vibrations means it’s in between 15 and 30. If you have a commitment that ends at 9:30, you still have time left. If you feel three vibrations, that means you’re late.
Precise time via LED feedback
Prompt has a series of LEDs around the perimeter that show you the exact time when you need it.
All you have to do is touch the face of Prompt for a short period of time and the LEDs will light up indicating the exact time within a minute. If you want to know the precise minute in the hour, you can always trigger the LEDs, but it’s not necessary — you never have to look at Prompt.
Prompt gives you the freedom to choose how you check the time. You can keep the anti-watch in your pocket or you can wear it on your wrist by attaching a wristband.
Prompt also provides versatility in the way that you check the time — you can get the approximate time at the quarter hour via haptics or you can know up to the minute via the LED perimeter.
