If you've grown tired of the constant need to be connected, this simplified smartphone might be the perfect option for you. The 'Janus One' helps you take a digital detox by taking away the ability to play games, access apps or even take pictures with your phone.

The Kickstarter-funded smartphone is small enough to fit in your wallet, yet powerful enough to last for three months without recharging. The phone has no screen or apps, meaning you cannot play games, browse social media, access the web or take pictures. The simplified smartphone only features a digital display and numeric keyboard for basic texting and calls. If you're not ready to give up your current smartphone, you can also sync the 'Janus One' to your existing phone. This gives you the power to switch between mobiles whenever you feel like taking a digital detox.

The Janus One may not be for everyone, but it is a perfect option for those who are eager to take a break from technology once in a while.
