Eone was founded by Hyungsoo Kim with the aim of providing watches
for both the sighted and the visually impaired. It all started at MIT when Kim was studying with a friend who was blind. He noticed that during lectures his friend would always ask him for time but not because he was blind but because the watch for blind was a talking watch, and he does not want to disturb the lecture. He was determined to find a better solution for his friend, but he was left disappointed when he found out that there weren’t any quality alternatives for his friend. This made Kim to collaborate with designers to bring a lasting solution to this problem and this led to Eone. Eone’s mission was to design a watch for everyone.
