Mutewatch is your new time management tool that features silent vibrating alarm and timer function. This product was born when Mai-Li Hammagreen didn’t want to wake her boyfriend every morning as he worked late nights as film photographer. She got in touch with a design engineering student, Oscar Ritzén Praglowski, together with Gustav Hammargren, they founded Mutewatch back in 2008. The original goal was to create a quiet alarm clock with philosophy of time management and respecting other people’s time.
In the process in developing this watch, Johan Thelander, a mechatronical engineering student, was brought into the team because of his passion of turning concepts into tangible products. Just for your information, a couple of year ago Johan transformed his bed into a giant alarm clock which sensitive to weight. Therefore, the bed wouldn’t stop beeping until he got out of bed. He’s the perfect person for this job.
Today, the team is excited to finally release the Mutewatch into the market.
