I love the Offgrid Awake clock. I use it as my main clock in my bedroom, so the phone never enters my bedroom, as well as my meditation timer. My phone now lives in a drawer in the dining room, and I use it way less, which was my goal. The only thing I would change about the clock is that, when setting the timer or alarm, I'd love it if I could press and hold the button down in order to get it to advance. Right now, the button has to be pressed repeatedly to get to the number you want, which isn't so user friendly. Other than that, it's an awesome clock and I'm so glad I found it!
This thing is awesome. Finally a way to have a timed meditation without needing to use a cellphone or an offensively loud kitchen timer. The size of this thing is great, the way it operates is lovely with lots of customizations, and it came in a very excellent package as well. My only issue is that there was only two volume options for the bell sound; either low or high. If I was to make a recommendation, it would be having more options in terms of the sound volume of the bell because even the low setting was quite loud in a very still setting. That is my only issue, and I went in and put some tissue paper against the speaker so as to muffle the sound a little bit, and that made it perfect for my needs. Great product for sure! I have been looking for something similar for such a long time and I am so thrilled that I was able to find this one.
I had been searching for a clock/timer for exactly the reasons that lie behind the design of this clock - something to wake me up with a pleasant sound instead of screeching noise and which I could carry into my morning sitting - all while maintaining focus without the noise and distraction of the world during that period of my day. This has helped me curb what had become a clear addiction to my mobile phone's constant flood of information and allows me to simply put it away after a certain point in my day and carve out time for my partner at home and my morning practice, undisturbed by anything else. Really grateful for your having taken your idea to fruition.
love waking up to the chimes... much better than the standard annoying alarm clock beep... and I am not tempted to check my phone first thing in the morning!
Love it. Great alarm, excellent meditation timer. I've used it for a few weeks at this point, and it is exactly what I was looking for. The only thing I didn't like is that there isn't an optional wall cord, as I think that's more environmentally friendly than using AA batteries in a clock — a rechargeable clock would be great. My rechargeable AA batteries didn't seem to have enough juice to power the display, so I had to use the disposables included in the package.
