Auto Reminder Watch

Auto Alarm Watch to remind kids about music lessons and the like.

It then vibrates discretely when the time comes to leave for a music lesson. It is also a binary display watch.

Our home heating system sucks!

Partly it’s the up-to-temperature problem where centrally located thermostats register that all is well while some rooms are still cold – or vice versa and the boiler/furnace runs pointlessly.
