Lights, rather than Words

For thousands of years, our ancestors understood time by following the movement of shadows as the sun made its way across the sky. Then, the advent of the Industrial Revolution brought high-precision machines that changed the perception of time, making it more tangible and accurate. The impact was significant, enabling a minute-by-minute understanding of a 24-hour day. Now, in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, time has become just one piece of information on a data-filled screen. With an abundance of words, numbers and images shown to us in a single display, it takes more time to find and absorb the information that matters to us most. Tapping the latest IoT technologies, VELDT LUXTURE smartwatch uses lights, instead of words, to deliver the information you want to see, and when you want to see it.

Life Tech Rebalance

At VELDT, our mission is to rebalance life and technology. Today’s smart devices and applications are designed to capture our attention and time, often at the price of our well-being, relationships, and environment. The VELDT smartwatch takes a different approach. We optimize our technology for harmony and beauty. The design and functionalities are driven by a sustainable future – to inspire actions that improve ourselves, our society, and the global environment. The latest VELDT LUXTURE smartwatch deliberately reduces the amount of data displayed at any given time, conveying only the most important information that you define. Words are replaced with lights for a more sublime experience. Unique built-in capabilities, such as the Climate Action Reminder, foster awareness of global climate change with the hope that individuals are inspired to be good citizens of the Earth. VELDT LUXTURE smartwatches offer a new luxury for seekers of balance, harmony, and beauty in a digital world.

Connected and Sustainable Future

地球温暖化や環境の情報をもっと身近に。ヴェルトはLUXTUREに地球温暖化の影響、天候、自然環境を身近に感じられる機能を搭載しています。例えば10年前と今日の地球の平均気温やCO2濃度の比較する機能や、指定した位置の大気汚染の度合い知る機能等。月齢や好きな海の波の情報、夕陽の見られる時間等。一人一人のちょっとした行動の変化で地球環境は少し変わるはず。ヴェルトはこれらの情報を自社製品のユーザーだけでなく、より多くの人に向け世界の気候変動に関する年間および過去のデータを提供する新たなWebサイト「Weltwatch.com」を運営しています。(Weltは”ヴェルト”と発音。ドイツ語で”世界”。)
