Frequently Asked Questions about
the Awake Mindfulness Clock
Oh cool! You developed an app for meditation!
NO! This is a physical clock and timer 🙂 It’s NOT connected to the internet.
Is the clock battery operated?
Yes! Batteries are included. A low-battery indicator appears when the batteries have a month of life remaining.
Some people are concerned about having power cords near their bed. No power cords here!
Are the batteries included?
Yes! Two AA batteries are included and they last for many months. And there’s a low battery indicator that stays on for over a month.
Why does the timer count up after it’s done counting down?
Some people like to continue meditating for longer than they originally intended/set their timer for. With the timer counting up, they can see how long they meditated for.
Is there a volume control?
Yes! You can choose between a low or high volume.
What does the chime sound like?
It’s a soothing A# chime recorded by a sound technician here in Boulder CO.
What’s the Warm-Up function for?
You can set the warm-up for...let’s say 20 seconds. Then you put the timer down, get settled, and the chime sounds once (not all three times). This lets you know the timer is in action, so you don’t have to wonder five minutes later if you actually turned it on.
Can I set it to only count up (without first counting down)?
Yes! My friend Lucy doesn’t use a countdown and has an open-ended practice, but she likes to know how long she was sitting. This function is for her and people like her.
