Hey everyone! We’re out at Sandhamn, an island in the Stockholm archipelago, on our third conference. Our main focus is the company’s future and Mutewatch V2.
Mutewatch is featured as a pick on FILTER‘s Flash (products) page in the latest FILTER Good Music Guide which is out now! Thanks Pat and Heather <3
Although normally based in Chamonix, France, Andreas and Bjarne are currently out travelling around the world, making expeditions, skiing and filming. Andreas was the first person to ski down the south face of Denali, the highest peak in North America. Previously, he was the first to descend quite a few slopes in Chamonix and this year he won the prize of Swedish Adventurer of the Year in Stockholm. Bjarne is an adventurer who turned his passion for outdoor life and mountains into a living. He is now working with filming some of the most avid skiers all around the world.
We are so proud to be one of five finalists in Stora Designpriset / The Swedish Grand Award of Design!

The Pomodoro technique is our new favorite time management technique. Our friend Fabian Hemmert suggested we check it out when we met him in Austin for SXSW and a few weeks later our friend Devi Brunson recommended it. Funnily enough, this technique is something we named timeboxing back in the early days of Timetank. Btw, check out Fabian’s awesome TedTalk at TedxBerlin on the shape-shifting future of the mobile phone here.
So, how does the pomodoro technique work?
1. Choose a task to be accomplished 2. Set the your Mutewatch to 25 minutes 3. Work on the task until your Mutewatch vibrates then put a check on your sheet of paper 4. Take a short break (5 minutes is OK) 5. Every four Pomodoros take a longer break.
Each set of 25 minutes of work + 5 minutes break (also called a “pomodoro slice”) makes up half an hour making it super easy to plan your day. Genius!

Ps. This can be done without a Mutewatch too. Just use your kitchen timer. But I tell you, it won’t be half as soothing as a silent vibration going off at your wrist.
This morning I visited The Conran Shop in the gorgeous Michelin House in Chelsea in London to give the staff a sales training. Here’s Will giving a demo of the watch.
You can buy your Mutewatch at the gift and accessories department at The Conran Shop, Michelin House, 81 Fulham Road, London
