About this project

What is «To-Do»? It's your personal task manager for today.

  Nowadays human being's life is an infinite deluge of thoughts and endless fear of missing something important. «To-Do» is not only the stylish alternative to wristwatches and accessories, but also the simple and effective tool to make your day more organized and resourceful. Furthermore «To-Do» praises individual approach! All the wearers can customize «To-Do» bracelets according to their tastes.

  «To-Do» philosophy is simple and clean: with a help of liquid chalk marker and chalkboard paint surface you can write down all necessary tasks and make important notes on the go.

  All you need is to keep our compact chalk marker (or any other appropriate writing tool) along with you or in the workplace and express everything you want or need to do right on to your wrist, to capture a though before it slips away. Is it time to clear some space for new notes and writings? Simply rub the chalkboard surface with a special soft leather kerchief (or similar material) included in a package.

 Quick access to a new kind of task manager is not the only advantage. Your to-do list is always in the eyesight! Large and heavy paper organizers or smartphone apps aren't so convenient tools because you need to keep always in mind the notices you've left. Sometimes it's getting too far: you’re starting making notices to check the other notices! Our «To-Do» bracelet catches your eye and serves as a constant reminder of the most important things to complete.

  While developing the «To-Do» Watch concept we were eager to create something that would finally solve the eternal problem of catching up with our plans and to-do lists for the day. Each of us is just a person who wants to get things straight. Ordinary task managers offer more problems than solutions despite their popularity, profaning the whole idea of task management. In the end people just give up all the efforts to keep on tracking with it and the possibility of achieving an absolute harmony in their daily schedule. There are a lot of negative factors accompanying the common tools for TM issues: sometimes you need to get through a lot of irrelevant stuff just to reach your organizer (apart of its large and clumsy sizes). And as far as smartphone apps concerned none of them is sustainable for technical malfunctions as well as discharged phone battery. Sticky notes and paper sheets left everywhere lead to more chaos rather than reminder of what's important. «To-Do» takes care of all these problems in the most elegant, effective and incredibly stylish way!

 We’ve chosen wristwatch format for «To-Do» deliberately. First of all we’ve thought about making it comfortable for each wearer, its universal and ergonomic shape and characteristics and easy access to information as well. Wristwatch proved itself as the most appropriate format for our purpose: «To-Do» is always on your hand and in your eye. Lightweight case made of natural wood and compact size make the gadget almost weightless on your wrist and it's easy to integrate «To-Do» into your daily outfit due to ever time vintage yet remarkable design and large variety of watch bands. And, of course, there is no quicker way to make a note in the time of need! Psychological aspect is also important: limited space on the surface provides more rational approach to your own understanding of priorities, picking out only really urgent matters to manage with. Being your constant companion «To-Do» will help you to focus on the current task and keep it always in mind 'till the satisfying result.

  Undoubtedly, a lot of tests and practices had been performed to make the perfect design and the simplest universal shape before we reached the ultimate solution. Coating, wooden materials and supporting tools were selected thoroughly too. Finally just before our Kickstarter campaign, we've got the final prototypes with the ideal embodiment of our concept.

Measurements: 

Width: 38 mm
Height: 45 mm
Thickness: 8 mm

Case:

«To-Do» is made of natural wood and covered with chalkboard coating. Yeah, like a good old school board!

There are three wood species available:
- maple
- black walnut
- sandal wood 

Strap:

Genuine high quality leather straps made of soft calf skin.

Set:

  Each set of «To-Do» watch consists of accessory itself, liquid chalk marker and soft-tanned leather kerchief for cleaning.

  We’ve spent a lot of time selecting proper materials for wooden case. Our company keeps to Eco-friendly policy therefore we use only safe-health and hypo allergic materials and recycled wood. We care about Nature at all stages of materials acquiring and items manufacturing without making any harm to the environment.

  Moreover we've decided to spend a part of profit from each «To-Do» piece on planting new trees within “A Billion Trees” campaign launched by The Nature Conservancy organization. So with your help we can make our world some better and healthier!

  Our team is Alex Suhih and Max Mezentsev, young designers in Pixel design bureau. In recent years in the course of team-work we've completed some acknowledged co-projects, marvelous concepts and ideas especially in the field of wearable accessories. Particular and regular interest in our creative work and its realization pushed us to implement the most popular ideas in life. «To-Do» is one of them.

  There’s quite wide variety of works and vast experience in graphics and web design behind our backs; several dozens of developed sites and services (even award-winning!). Also a bunch of interesting projects in production and industrial design is ready for launching.

 Also we would like to thank our friends from It's My Wrist (itsmywrist.com) designer watch store. This project couldn't be possible without their part. Due to their experience, knowledge and connections in watch and production industry we were able to make «To-Do» real.

 We appreciate your participation and realize your desire to get your «To-Do» in time. That's why we separated «To-Do» production on seven stages and coordinated each with our manufacturer. Our production plan considers possibility of little delays, so graphic table reflects the maximum possible terms. In fact we predict shorter periods for each production stage, so we hope to be able to deliver your «To-Do» even earlier!

 Your support is a huge guiding force for us and only with your help we'll be able to make our project happen! However even if you can't fund our project right now we will be grateful if you'll tell about us your friends and followers. Share our project on Facebook or Twitter and follow us on Instagram - let the world know about «To-Do» and help it become slightly more organized :)

Risks and challenges

It stands to reasons that any fund investments are often accompanied by some risks. However we're ready to ensure that in our case the risks are quite low. We are hitting Kickstarter with the ready-made prototypes, but not the preliminary designs and we are prepared to all the setbacks and obstacles until our first big project launching.

All the photos are made with the real objects and graphics. We've already got and tested the final prototypes that can become the samples for the future manufacturing. We’ve also prepared the platform and resources for quantity exceeding our initial goal for more than 100%. Besides our team’s managed to cope with the entire necessary document execution and we were successful in negotiations for the best result. We're absolutely sure you'll get your «To-Do» in time!

Certainly there can be the demand for our «To-Do» apart from Kickstarter. But our backers always go first and foremost! Every single «To-Do» request made out of KS will be moved to slightly later period, right after we ship the last obliged set of «To-Do» to our backers.
