Life Watch is an adventure company that makes simple watches from recycled rubber. The average person receives 64 phone notifications each day, so we decided none should come from your watch. Our watches are made to accompany you on every day's adventure, not distract you from it.

While shopping for a watch, I realized there was a shortage of well-designed digital sports watches. Most sports watches today are technology centered, but I wanted a watch to simplify my life rather than complicate it with more notifications and metrics to keep track of.
After realizing this problem, I asked my best friend to be my cofounder, and the two of us spent two years creating Life Watch. We believe everyday is an adventure, and we want to help our wearers count experiences not steps.
We worked with three of Northwestern University's best engineers to design our watch and spent months vetting potential manufacturers to produce it. The manufacturer we chose has over a decade of watchmaking experience and met our high standards in both quality and sustainability. To be sure, we flew across the world to see for ourselves.
Life Watch is committed to production practices that don't harm our planet. With that in mind, every single watch band will be made using recycled rubber, and my cofounder and I are promising to spend a week doing service projects that help clean up our Earth when our campaign ends. We'll be making it public in case anyone wants to join. Beyond this, Life Watch will work towards leaving a net positive carbon footprint with our production.
