Can a wristwatch read your mood better than it can count your steps and monitor your snooze? Triwa’s about to try with a heat-reactive dial that it hopes to spark a conversation about mental health. Like colour-changing jewellery that has been around for ages, these wristwatches called Time to Talk utilise one’s body temperature to activate the thermochromic colour pigments layered on the dial. The dial might indicate a bluish hue for a happy or relaxed individual whilst an orangey one might point towards a nervous emotion. Although this 38mm stainless steel timekeeper won’t resolve all problems, Triwa is hoping it provides better awareness of one’s own emotions – and even get some of you to talk openly about that sense of joy or pain called feelings. Also, it will be donating 15 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of these wristwatches to mental illness awareness group Mind.
