Glance Clock is a beautiful piece of tech. But don’t be fooled, our team went through a number of iterations before we landed on this final design. And we must say, we are quite proud of the final product. It’s really amazing how Glance looks effortless on any wall, and feels totally sleek in your hands.

To make Glance, we combined natural materials, giving the clock a cozy quality. We wanted to make sure that Glance Clock is soft to the touch, so we gave it a smooth back that flows into a cold aluminum frame, finally meeting with the fabric clock face.

When the lights go on they look like a small diamonds that make the clock magically amazing.

To add a little spark, we placed bright full-color LEDs behind the clock face. Even though they are hidden when the clock is switched off, as soon as a notification pops up, the clock faces shows beautiful and crisp graphics.

When a notification is ready, you can see it clearly in beautiful and bright colors. Doesn’t it look magical?

Here you can see the evolution of Glance Clock’s very core. These PCBs might look the same, but the difference lies in the small details. We went through a number of significant changes and alterations before we got to our final version.

Final prototype assembly: in just a matter of minutes, these scattered parts come together as a beautiful piece of technology.

We worked hard to make the Glance Clock display as bright and sharp as possible. Each prototype turned out much better than the previous one. You may have noticed that in the main video the display is not bright enough, but if you check our this video with the pre-production prototype, you will see that the screen is very bright and clear.
