After months of raging internal team debates and philosophical pondering on the nature of time - we decided on having emit show the current time as well. Its easily accessible from any of your emit faces for you to check current time.
We haven't found any watch that is purely focused on showing you time in reverse. Smartwatches are cluttered with a plethora of apps that distract you from what you should be using your time for. You are unlikely to open the app when you know you are already running late on something. emit shows you time remaining to the things that really matter to you. It compels you to remember you priority and reduces the chances of you running behind on them. Its a subtle psychological trick which influences your brain to adhere to your own goals better.
emit needs to be a physical device on your wrist such that it can remind you of 2 things without any friction: 1. What your priority should be for that moment 2. Your time is being spent away, so make sure its being done with a purpose.
Having emit on you enables you to easily remain mindful of your time everytime you glance at it.
emit will have our own firmware update system, which we plan to roll out for 2+ years at least. The phone app will have much more regular updates, as most of emit's functionality is controlled through it. We intend to keep updating the phone app to keep it compatible with even future versions of emit when we make them.
