Introducing Klikkit, the smart button that helps you create long-lasting habits
Good habits keep us healthy, active and happy – but good habits are hard to build.
Introducing Klikkit, the smart reminder button, and app solution.
Klikkit is designed to help you track and remember any activity that’s important to you. This could be taking medications, supplements, doing regular exercises, or even watering your household plants. Add a Klikkit button to your activity, set up your plan in the app, and you're good to go. With the overview function, you can check your progress easily.
Why Klikkit improves habits
Klikkit is unique – it’s the only digital solution that uses the fundamentals of behavioral science to inspire behavioral change.
How? The answer lies in Klikkit’s unique combination of an app with a habit-building smart button. This combination helps you remember activities and reinforces good habits.
The smart button itself works as a visible cue for your activity – every time you see it, you’re reminded of the habit you want to improve. The button also blinks and sounds when your activity is due, notifying you that you need to take action. When you complete the activity, you click the button. Clicking is simple, tactile, and it plays an important role in building habits. Clicking provides that feeling of accomplishment and cognitive closure.
Clicking even releases small amounts of dopamine – the powerful chemical that controls the brain’s pleasure center – so each click feels like getting a pat on the back.
Behavioral scientists call this action-and-reward system the “habit loop,” an essential element of strengthening habits. With Klikkit, your important activities can grow easily into positive habits.
Ready, set, click - the durable, smart button that improves habit building.
Via Bluetooth, the Klikkit button connects easily to your smartphone app – creating a foolproof habit-building powerhouse.
Attach the smart buttons to any item connected to a habit you want to change or improve (i.e., a pill or water-bottle) and color-code the buttons with the replaceable color rings. You can assign each button to a specific activity.
In the app, it’s easy to set up a schedule for your activity – one pill every morning, for instance. Klikkit automatically notifies you and the button will light up and make a sound so you can rely on Klikkit to remind when it's time to act. Click it each time you complete a task. Every click is stored in the button's internal memory and sent to the app via Bluetooth when the phone is available so that you can track your progress anytime and anywhere on your Android or iOS phone.
With Klikkit, the more you click, the more you train your brain to remember – this helps you build your activities into habits. This means anyone can succeed in building a healthier lifestyle.
Review your progress, any time you need it.
Did I remember to take my medication this morning? Is this the 4th or 5th coffee today? When running a busy life, it's difficult to keep track of your plans and how they pan out. The Klikkit app can give you an immediate overview of how you are progressing through your day, week or even month. Just looking at the dashboard eliminates any doubt - for peace of mind.
The dashboard views in the app can be accessed on a second phone too, so whether it's for you or someone important in your life, Klikkit can help you to stay on top of your shared plans, and make sure nothing is forgotten.
Setting up Klikkit is easy.
Just four steps take you from opening your first button to building your first new habit.
Klikkit is a cutting-edge solution based on Bluetooth low-energy technology
Consistent and power efficient solution. All button clicks are displayed instantly in the app. To be extremely power efficient, both buttons and app are constantly kept in “sleep mode” and woken up only when new clicks need to be transferred.
Klikkit can work independently from phone and network. If the phone is not in range, buttons can store all information on schedules, sound alarms and register clicks in the virtually limitless internal memory.
One user, multiple buttons. Every user can connect multiple buttons to one account and check progress across multiple tasks. All information collected helps build a complete overview of everything the user wants to track and improve.
Take Klikkit along on your busy days. As opposed to other smart buttons, Klikkit does not require WiFi connectivity to function, therefore Klikkit can be used on the go.
What will we do with our Kickstarter funding?
Klikkit has been designed in the vibrant medical innovation culture of the LEO Innovation Lab in Copenhagen. Through research, we know that sticking to good habits, such as medical treatments, is a huge issue for many people. This is why we started up a small team of innovative experts to create a solution that combined the convenience of mobile technology and a user-friendly button that engaged the senses.
Over the last year, we tested multiple designs and variants, but ultimately, the design that we’re now finalising is what we can be proud of. We will use the funding from Kickstarter’s backer community to begin production.
Please note: Amount may slightly vary depending on conversion from Danish Krone to U.S. Dollar.
The Klikkit team
Klikkit is a small, international team of experienced and visionary product designers, digital technologists, and behavioural scientists with experience in creating hardware solutions designed to bring value to their users. We are passionate about building consumer products that have the potential to change the way we live for the better.
We already have plans for the future that we want to build with your help: We’re planning for the Klikkit Hub, which will allow you to connect all your Klikkits to the cloud directly - ideal for when you don’t have your smartphone handy or when you’re using Klikkit in larger environments like your office or your shop.
Who is Klikkit for?
Klikkit is for everyone who wants or needs to improve a habit or be reminded of an important task. The possibilities are endless.
Risks and challenges
We are currently finalizing a new version of our app for iOS and Android devices, as well as consolidating our production plans. While our project is proceeding as planned, we believe in complete transparency with our backers, and would like to inform you of certain risks and challenges ahead. These include completing the new Klikkit app in time, eliminating any bugs we may have missed during development, as well as any unforeseen production issues.
We are working hard to minimize these risks and challenges for Klikkit’s Kickstarter backers, and are committed to delivering a high-quality product for you on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
