Launch Of Chroneering AI-Powered Smart Watch. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing a press release on the Launch Of Chroneering AI-Powered Smart Watch. Founded in late 2019 by Robin Schultz, Chroneering® is a Scandinavian brand meaning “reengineering time”. Owned by Swedish ‘Startup up the Year’ finalist Nord A1. Nord AI is a company focuses on creating digital sustainability by countering information overload. Nord A1’s innovative information filter into classic watch designs signifies the company’s AI-based vision for timekeeping.

The First Smartwatch Designed For What Matters
‘Startup of the Year’ finalist Nord A1 has developed an AI-powered quartz watch that interprets and filters information only to notify what is essential to the user—enabling a digital gatekeeper against information overload.
People receive an average of 64 push notifications per day. Over half of the notifications are considered distracting, irritating, and inconvenient. One in four is deemed entirely irrelevant to the user, leading to stress, anxiety, and loss of focus.
“Today, everyone is approachable about anything, anywhere, and at any time, regardless of the needs and wants of the recipient. Regular notications are based on sources and the only way to avoid them is to turn them o, but that leaves the risk of missing something important. Instead, we notify based on content and the actual context of the information, which ensures there is enough substance worth telling the users about before interrupting them in their activities.”
CEO & Founder Robin Schultz
Creating Digital Sustainability
Chronerring’s standard notification model used in today’s intelligent devices is called “random reinforcement”, which rewards the user with dopamine at irregular intervals. The system is highly addictive and significantly affects how much time people spend with their online devices. With Nord A1’s focus on mental well-being and natural language processing, the team has challenged Big Tech’s efforts to maximize user engagement, which has changed digital communication’s fundamentals to give personal power back.
By developing a framework consisting of different types of emergencies, hazards, urgencies, requests, contacts, and more. Each notification is automatically categorized and given a specific value. This gives the user insight into the substance of the information before interacting with it. It allows more vibrations from the smartphone and instead uses the watch as a guiding mechanism for whether they should engage with the notification.
In that sense, the watch becomes the first line of defence for the user. This decreases screen time and quality time, with secured data privacy through minimization and non-human interference.
The Future Of Wristwear
Chroneering offers the world’s first AI-integrated watch focusing on optimization rather than maximization. With in-house movements and analogue appearances, the technology is incorporated without compromising the watch industry’s fundamental values of craftsmanship and design. The AI wristwear contains Nordic and Swiss components, 316L grade stainless steel, and AR-coated sapphire crystal. One hundred meters of water resistance and a low energy design with up to two years of intelligent battery life.
The social ‘101’ launching series includes models with customizable designs and features like activity tracking, time management, reminders, and remote controls. The central hands move on a severity scale related to the importance of the information. Similar to a thermometer reacting to heat. The subdials also point to different slots for customizable actions to communicate specific topics, channels, and apps, along with three pushers.
The highly anticipated launch of Chroneering’s AI wristwear takes place on Kickstarter in Q4 of 2022. The watches are sold at a 30% launch-day discount between 345€ and 415€. The company is also planning to launch an exclusive NFT of the first gold model, giving the buyer 5% of the eternal profit.
I hope you enjoyed that.
