The Tikker “Death Watch”

The Tikker, or “death watch” is a watch that counts down how much time you have left to live. Its creators say that it is a reminder to enjoy every second of your life and calling it “the happiness watch”.

“The Happiness Watch”, is invented by Fredrik Colting who has said that he wanted to find a way to determine people “to cherish the time and the life that we have been given, to honor it, suck the marrow from it, seize the day and follow our hearts. And the best way to do this is to realize that seconds, days and years are passing never to come again.”

So how does it work?

Before setting up the Tikker, you first need to fill out a questionnaire with information about your medical history, weight, lifestyle details such as if you drink or smoke and how often you exercise. And your medical history, after all these are filled in – you are given a score representing your entire lifespan including the years you have already lived. Then your current age is deducted from this score, the countdown begins.
