ZEI°

Revolutionary time tracking device

#2 Product of the DayApril 17, 2016

Reviews

 
  • Pros: 

    Great Apps, very nice to have a physical device to turnover

    Cons: 

    Disconnecting issues with laptop hibernation

    Playing with my Makerkit is a lot of fun, but took a while to get it right. I really like having the physical object to turnover, but the apps also work great on the phone. Main downside is that when my laptop is shutdown / hibernates, the zei does not always reconnect. Means I just use the app instead.

    Mark has used this product for one week.

Hey guys, I'm one of the founders behind ZEI°. We believe that hardware can finally make time tracking effortless and instant. But we don't want to create just one more time tracking solution as there are already many out there - therefore we integrate it into existing solutions like @toggl @harvest @timeneye @wunderlist @trello etc... I'm happy to answer your questions! Cheers, Manuel

Yep, I want it. Was thinking about using an Arduino to build something myself but this looks great.

@ttrauser
@jtown_ thanks Justin! You still can go on building something with Arduino - maybe you come up with a better idea/solution? ;)

Very cool idea! Does ZEI has feedback functionality (vibration, sound, whatever...), so I can set each project max/min time to work on? Already signed up ;)

@yulian_ustiyanovych thanks for the feedback Yulian! Well this would fall into the category of customized reminders. We don't have any plans for that right now, but as we want to add Pomodoro support as well, we need to add some kind of reminder functionality. Would you prefer a physical feedback functionality or would a notification/email on the mobile/computer be enough?
