Could a new take on a traditional timer help you better manage your time? Ticktime thinks that could be the case.


A new time management tool, Ticktime enables users to better focus on what they’re doing right at the moment, so they can get more done in a more efficient way with fewer distractions.


The small, lightweight device can fit into a pocket and be taken anywhere. The six-sided device features lighting on each side and can count down to a customized combination of minutes or seconds, or count down with pre-set amounts of time, including three minutes, five minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 25 minutes and 30 minutes. Users can also time upwards, counting from zero to 99 minutes and 59 seconds.


Ticktime can be used in silent mode while reading or working in a public space, alerting you to when time is up with a flashing light. It also makes a handy kitchen tool, as its magnetic sides easily stick to kitchen appliances. Users also find Ticktime handy in the gym or when playing games.


Ticktime was created by accessory and tech provider Llano, a hardware brand that designs and builds mobile tech and consumer accessories, from smartphone lenses to Bluetooth audio products. The recently launched product is currently not being sold, but you can sign up for updates on the Ticktime website to receive an early-bird discount and more news on launch dates. Llano products are only available online in the United States, but can be found at other distributors in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.
