Introducing Aro

More than just a box

Aro is more than a box for your phone. Built on the principles and science of habit formation, Aro is the first app that pairs with a device to help you put down your phone. Patent-pending technology enables the app to automatically connect to the smart box using Bluetooth. No pairing necessary.

It's your guide

The Aro app gamifies the experience of being off your phone. The app automatically connects to the Aro Home device, measures the time you spend away from your phone, reminds you to take breaks from your phone, shows you data to improve your phone habits, and even lets you connect and compete with others.

“We have the opportunity to make memories and we're not because we're on our phones. Aro is a tool and resource to help us live the life we want to so that life doesn't happen to us.”
