Alarmshock: A locking wearable alarm. Get up or get shocked!
The alarm device designed to kill the snooze button forever. A commitment to making more of your life.
Alarmshock is locking wristband and dock designed to get you out of bed. You set your Alarmshock, the wearable locks to your wrist and you head to bed. When it's time to start your day you will be woken up by sound and vibrations that come from the wristband. You've got 2 minutes to deactivate the alarm at the dock and unlock the wristband. If you don't make it in time you'll get an electric shock with a similar voltage to a TENS machine. The longer you stay in bed to more powerful and frequent the shocks become.
There's a locking wristband which has the alarm built in (and sometimes gives you a shock) and the dock which can charge your band and your phone, unlocks the band and deactivates the alarm.
The aim is to never feel the shock administered by the wristband and only hear the built in alarm and feel the vibration. Once you're up the day is yours to go exercise, be on time or simply enjoy the sunshine! The shock is just an incentive not to stay in bed hitting snooze until you've missed that job interview.
Alarmshock wakes you up much like your mobile or alarm clock with sound and vibrations to let you know its time to get up and return the band on your wrist to the docking station.
Designed for the most extreme over sleepers and snoozers, the band is durable and super strong and is designed to only be taken off once it is the returned to the docking station.
The biggest problem for oversleepers and habitual snoozers is that even if you're awake, you might not want to get out of bed. With the thought of getting shocked looming over you, you'll spring out of bed as soon as the alarm goes off and you're set.
The Alarmshock wristband and Alarmshock dock have been designed to sit away from your bed in another room and encourage you to get up in order to release the wristband.
The Alarmshock dock features an additional USB point to promote disconnecting from your mobile device. Keeping your phone next to your bed can be linked to insomnia and the blue light produced by screens reduce the production of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin.
Over 60% of us snooze and when we do we're throwing off our internal clock by getting up at 8:00 one day and 8:30 the next. And if you’re not waking up at the same time every day, your body doesn’t know when to start feeling sleepy.
Alarmshock is the first thing you think of when you wake up and because you can’t take it off, you'll actually get up when it goes off, every day at the same time. Eventually, this consistency may help you feel naturally sleepy at the end of your day, so you’ll feel compelled to go to bed when your body needs to, and then wake up without the need for an alarm.
