Digital Detox Smartphones

This Simplified Smartphone Has No Screen or Apps

— August 13, 2015 — Tech
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.
Trend Themes
1. Simplified Smartphones - Opportunity for companies to create minimalist phones that promote digital detox and reduce reliance on apps and screens.
2. Digital Wellness - Growing demand for devices and services that help people disconnect from constant technology use and promote a healthier relationship with digital devices.
3. Detox Accessories - Emergence of accessories and add-ons that complement digital detox experiences, such as phone-syncing devices that allow users to switch between regular smartphones and simplified phones.
Industry Implications
1. Smartphone Manufacturing - Opportunity for manufacturers to develop and market simplified smartphones that cater to individuals seeking digital detox options.
2. Wellness Technology - Disruptive innovation opportunities exist for companies within the wellness sector to create devices and services that promote digital well-being and help users disconnect from constant technology usage.
3. Tech Accessories - Opportunity for tech accessory companies to design and produce add-ons that support digital detox experiences, such as syncing devices that enable users to switch between different smartphone devices.
