Zen Clock: Minimalist Smart Clock for All Places

HK$ 166,627

We already know that we live in the age of connectedness. People everywhere are over-reliant on their devices and, for most people, being disconnected from their cell phones is next to unthinkable—even if only to keep track of basic information such as the time it is, the date, and the temperature inside and outside... which will often lead you to check other apps and actually lose track of the time you spend on your device.


Pursuing a perfect balance between nature and technology, Zen Clock by PD-Life offers a smart, simple and convenient solution to this hyper-connectedness that incorporates Wisdom, Simplicity and Tranquility as core values.


You see, as a smart clock with a wealth of features, Zenn Clock allows you to easily check the time, date, indoor temperature and weather forecast without needing to check or use any other device. It’s like having all the most essential features of a smartphone integrated into a smart clock that oozes a sense of peace and wisdom that contributes to your well-being while still being as convenient as the most “techie” gadget that you could find.

On the other hand, as a decoration item, it has a unique minimalist design that perfectly adjusts to any room, office or shop decoration where you may want to have it. With an obvious conceptual connection to Nature, Zen Clock has a wood texture that embodies the beauty of life and which gives it a warm and welcoming soul that will reflect in any home or business environment where you place this very special smart clock.

Zen Clock also has a smooth ambient LED light that you can turn on if and when you need it while knowing that, if the light is off, this device will simply look like a décor item with a timeless design.


With millions of optional colors that you can choose and adjust through Zen Clock’s app, you can create a romantic atmosphere, the perfect reading environment, or a relaxation-inducing context just by adjusting to your preferred light tone.

While you can turn the light on and off through the app you can also use sounds—such as clapping from a distance—to trigger it. You can also automatically activate it through voice recognition if you want to (to have an instantly turned on light that is as bright as you want it to be when you wake up, for example).

That’s the principle at the heart of Zen Clock: an intelligent decoration item with a naturalistic touch and neutral design that is nevertheless charismatic. Its simple lines take a cue from Nature’s fluid organic structures but they are also marked by an arc that builds this clock’s special aesthetical character.


The fresh feel to how Zen Clock looks ensures that this is a clock that will never become outdated. We created this smart clock to always bring you the inner peace that you need for smoother days and nights while also serving over-delivering as a piece of smart clock technology that makes your life simpler and better.



  • The current time of the day and the current date
  • The indoors and outdoors temperature and humidity
  • The weather forecast
  • 5 different reminder rings for any day of the week
  • Millions of optional colors for the ambient light
  • Entirely adjustable functions and options controllable from an app
  • Compact and light design (size: 4.72〃* 7.67〃)


In terms of its screen, you can look at PD-LIFE’s Zen Clock LED Display to see the: (from top to down)

  • Weather forecast
  • Indoor temperature and humidity
  • Date
  • Time
  • 3 brightness levels that you can choose from while knowing that its lowest brightness level won’t affect your sleeping

While it is created to look simple and minimalist, Zen Clock actually comes with sophisticated features that make your life easier.

Its weather reporting and forecasting features are quite extraordinary. Zen Clock has a built-in device that monitors exterior temperature and humidity, updating the information every hour. Through a WIFI connection, it synchronizes with local weather forecasts. You can choose whether the weather information is displayed in Celsius or Fahrenheit and you can also adjust humidity readings both through the app or by hand. That means you’ll know in advance what is the weather that you’ll face if you’re planning to go out.

Again through a WIFI connection, this smart clock displays the local time and date wherever it is used in the world. It also allows you to set up 5 different reminder alarms per day, every day of the week, according to your needs. You can also use it as an efficient wake-up alarm that never fails, which means you’ll sleep better knowing that Zen Clock will wake you up exactly when you need to start your day.

Along with synchronizing with your smartphone or tablet to provide information on weather and on the local time and date, Zen Clock can also be fully controlled and personalized through its app—namely as to its reminder features and to its special lighting functions.
