Our Story

On a skiing trip a few years ago a friend injured himself so Paul, our CEO, spent the rest of the trip skiing alone listening to music. When he wanted to change his playlist, adjust the volume or accept a phone call Paul had to stop, take a glove off and retrieve his phone from a pocket, before replacing everything to carry on. He had a similar experience running, cycling and training in his local gym. There was no existing wearable device or phone accessory that solved this problem, until now.
