IPTEQ presents the HIL1 Prayer Clock

This contemporary prayer clock is simple, accurate and beautiful. It’s perfect for a discreet location on your table, bookshelf or wall.

The Swiss Clock manufacturer, IPTEQ, will launch the HIL1 Prayer Clock on October 13th at the Hong Kong Electronic Show 2012.

The HIL 1 is a new concept of prayer clock developed to help Muslims perform their daily prayers without the need to consult prayer tables.

The combination of technology and intuitive user interface makes the HIL 1 an easy to use product for everybody.
IPTEQ has used its extensive clock making experience to calculate exact prayer times around the world by gathering this information from local religious societies. For locations not found in the official religious societies’ tables, incredibly precise prayer times are generated using specially developed formulas.

The clock includes a built-in compass which shows believers the direction of Mecca and, therefore, in which direction to pray.
While indicating prayers and other religious obligations, the HIL 1 also reproduces Athans and shows unique religious sayings (Hadiths) on screen.

From the design to the features, this contemporary clock is simple, accurate and beautiful – perfect for a discreet location on a table, bookshelf or wall.

Other features include special prayer-related alarms such as Emsak, Shurukh, Tahajud and Al-Goudwa as well as daily religious sayings (Hadiths), which are shown on screen. These are all in addition to normal clock times and dates and users can choose between several audios for Athans and alarms. The built-in prayer and Shurukh times for major world cities make it easy for your first time set-up and simple to update if you’re taking it with you while travelling. The high resolution 7” touch screen with backlit TFT / LED screen makes it bright and easy to read.

The HIL 1 is also available in 4 languages, Arabic, Urdu, French and English and the software can be easily updated.
