About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

Elderly have weaker vision. Most watches for elderly are designed with huge numbers but it is usually too big and bulky for the elderly.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

A magnifying glass installed to a round plastic piece with a screw thread. This magnifying glass can be attached to most watches that an elderly prefer. This piece of magnifying glass can be detached and used for reading.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

An elderly, with a poorer vision, needs to read time like everyone. Time to wake up, to sleep and even to take medication. However, the elderly has no choice but to buy a watch that has a large face that was bulky and too large for him. He will prefer to use any watch of his preference that has a detachable magnifying glass to aid his vision.
