monk is a small little desk buddy that notifies you when you've been sitting down for too long.
"Sitting is the new smoking":we didn't like that, so we decided to create monk.
Monk is here to create a habit: a healthy habit. We all know sitting down for hours is bad for your health and your productivity, but we also know sticking to your habits isn't easy.
Monk isn't about fancy fitness data—we wanted to create a friendly gadget that's here to help you develop a simple healthy habit.He sits quietly at your desk and notifies you when you've been sitting down for too long. Once this happens, you should grab him and walk around for a bit.
The way you communicate information in a product is key, so we didn't want to create yet another annoying gadget. That's why instead of buzzing, ringing or screaming, monk gently lights up once its time for you to stand up.
