You’re travelling and suddenly need to work out the direction of the Qibla. You also need to find out how much time remains for the Asr prayer. Usually, Muslims resort to their phones to find this information which can be practical, but not always convenient. With all the other tasks we perform on our phones, finding prayer times or searching for the direction of the Qibla can be a pain at times. From finding the right app to trying to perform other tasks simultaneously, using our phones for these purposes is not always as simple as we think.
To solve this problem, the Japanese brand Takva has recently released the Qibla Watch™.
In an interview by The Muslim Vibe, Meryem Chin – co-founder of Takva – said about the new smartwatch, “We wanted to develop a smart device purely dedicated to Muslims who prioritize their faith as part of their lifestyle. Not just that, but we want to prove that it Is also possible to retain the privacy of our users’ personal data in an ever-increasing digitalized and public world.”
