If you came here because of the headline, it’s true. You can access prayer times and Qibla directions with a simple swipe of the finger. No more fumbling about your phone or waiting for irritating ads to pass before you can see your Qibla direction! 🥳
And if you’re outside with no mosques nearby but need to pray, all you have to do is use the simplified compass ball on the Qibla Watch and watch that little ball roll into the hole to point in the right direction 😉 It’s also highly accurate, where the watch will pinpoint your exact location from your phone no matter where you are! This is helpful, especially when you’re travelling between cities with differing prayer times - no more inaccurate Qibla finders and timings! 😊
Wait, if you’re thinking, “I’m always too busy to check if I have time to pray”. Fret not - Qibla Watch will automatically show the countdown to the next prayer and send notifications to remind you of the time to pray. The notification alerts are customised to your preferences; for instance, instead of seeing it as 3 pm, you’ll see it as “5 minutes to Asar”. That enough is sure to get us scrambling immediately! 🥶
A haptic vibration will be sent to remind you before and/or at the start of the next prayer time. Select from a range of minimalistic face screens that display either a countdown timer or a progress bar that keeps you on top of your daily schedule and prayers with one glance 🥰
As if that doesn’t look gorgeous enough, the Qibla Watch comes in three different colours: midnight, aluminium, and rose gold. Smart, sleek and matches well for any outfit and occasion - what more can you ask for?! 😍
If trying to fulfil 5 prayers a day has been tough, squeezing in dhikr into our tight schedules proves even tougher. Here’s where Qibla Watch comes in handy - just simply tap on the watch while you’re on the go! 🤩 The watch syncs seamlessly to the Masjid Hub app, also developed by TAKVA, to record each session's dhikr count and tracks your daily, weekly and monthly progress according to your desired goals 😊
The Masjid Hub app itself has cool features you can’t miss out on, such as the special azan recording feature, which enables you to record, save and use their athan recitation as a sound alert notification on your phone for every prayer or the Bookmark feature in the Quran section, where you can save your favourite verses and access them easily from the main screen in the Quran tab 😊
Apart from the holy features, Qibla Watch has other beneficial features that make a smartwatch what it is today! Heart-rate and exercise tracking tools for our fellow Muslim fitspo, a battery time of up to 3 to 5 days, so you don’t have to keep charging every single time, and it’s certified waterproof IP67 - it won’t damage when in contact with water! 😉
The icing on the top of the cake, however, would be that the Masjid Hub app completely ad-free - say goodbye to annoying ads, especially when you’re in a rush trying to check out the timings of the prayers! 🥳 You don’t need a user profile, and your personal and location data will not be collected! Especially in an era where everything is connected digitally, these come in handy! 🥺
We’re like you - sometimes it’s hard to balance between our spiritual duty and our other worldly duties, but that shouldn’t stop us from trying! Having a device such as the Qibla Watch suited to our digitalised lives will help us keep track of our main purpose as Muslims in this world anyway - to serve God! No more excuses to miss your prayers 🤔
