The Tikker watch is the time gadget that informs users on how long you have left to live, which sounds like a daunting prospect for a watch, but the idea is to get the user motivated in making the most of their time here. Whenever we look at our watches we are aware that time is ticking away, and even though this is bringing us closer to our time we rarely look at it and dwell on our actual lifespan.
With the Tikker watch users can countdown their life, which sounds like a quite depressing thing to keep thinking about, although this could also be used to inspire people to go out and have a full life or take better care on a daily basis. While this is not exactly the ideal reminder for me those looking to accomplish more with their life could find this gets them more motivated on a daily basis.
In the video below this article we get a near 3 minute rundown on what this watch entails, and those who want to spend valuable life living time watching this can find out whether this watch will give you those 3 minutes back, especially if you consider whether this is a useful way of motivating your constant actions in your life.
With the Tikker digital wristwatch users are required to fill in a personal health history questionnaire and then using other statistics like age and other bad habits this watch determines the length of your life accordingly. While some feel that predicting your own death promotes and morbid outlook, I also feel that life is for living and I don’t want to spend valuable time dwelling on the certainty of death, especially my own.
Alternatively, I can understand how this intends to have a more positive effect on the user and initiate a hunger for a life they don’t want to waste, thus promoting healthy living and better choices for the future.
