It is suitable for my daily meditation needs. No bells’n’ whistles, just a simple clock and timer.
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.
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.
