bit pricy, but worth it
pros: - operation is simple and reasonable - design is enough simple - no internet connection cons: - button clicking sound is a bit loud - button doesn't work properly some time - low volume of chime sound is still too loud for me (I applied some paper on back and it works well) - setting timer length isn't very smart. I prefer dial - LCD screen quality is bad: good contrast angle is very limited overall: I'm satisfying with this product. Thanks for this timer, now I can go to bed and meditate without any electric device except this one.
Clock Doesn't Work & Customer Service Doesn't Respond
I was very excited to receive my Awake Clock and Meditation timer. This should be a great product and I would love to give it a good review. However, I received a clock with a mechanical problem -- the up and down arrow buttons that you use to set the time, timer, and alarm, do not function. Ok, that's a bummer but I figured I would just ask to exchange the broken clock I received for a working one. However, the customer service for returns is severely lacking. I have tried calling customer service, there was no answer, and emailing the company -- one email bounced, and my messages to 2 other email addresses at the company have not been returned. It's been more than 1 business day since I reached out to the company and I have had no response. If they get back to me and I'm able to successfully exchange my Awake Clock/Timer for a working one, I'll update my review. Meanwhile, buyer beware -- if you have any issues with your purchase, don't expect prompt customer service.
Review of Offgrid Mindfulness clock
It is suitable for my daily meditation needs. No bells’n’ whistles, just a simple clock and timer.
Simple and excellent at what it does...and doesn't
This clock is fabulous – it does exactly what I want it to: it has an alarm clock, lets me set meditation timers based on my preferences, and has a convenient and eye-friendly backlight for midnight wakeups. And it does nothing I don't want it to: connect to the internet or keep me up late at night. Meditating with this feels way nicer than with a phone as a timer, because on my phone I inevitably check my texts before opening the meditation app. Highly recommend.
Just what I needed
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!
