CHALLENGE: Smart devices distract us: Sometimes, we wish we weren't so absorbed.

INSIGHT: More connection to the digital world means less connection to the real world.
AUDIENCE: "Aspiring Analogs" – They love their phones, but dislike when friends use them at the dinner table. They may listen to Spotify, but they have a soft spot for vinyl records. They're excited by paper books, acoustic instruments and written calendars, yet they grew up in a digital age.
STRATEGY: Timex brings you back to the real world.
CONCEPT: Timex connects us to the past, when watches just told time.
TAGLINE: "Wearable Time Machines"
