What does "Aro" mean?
Aro is a Maori word that means “to notice, turn towards, take heed, pay attention to, or consider.” It inspired us because we want to help you notice what’s possible when you live your life, uninterrupted. Because we know it can be a bit confusing, we also want to help you notice that it’s pronounced like you’re saying the letters “R-O” and not “arrow.”
Who is Aro designed for?
Aro is for anyone who has ever struggled to put their phone down. In our experience, that’s just about all of us. Whether you want to focus on fun, family, work, your latest crazy hobby, or maybe want to be a little more aware of what the world around you is like when you’re not looking at your phone, Aro makes it easy for you to put down your phone.
How does Aro work?
Life is hard enough—that’s why we’ve made using Aro super easy. It’s as simple as setting your phone in Aro and living your life, uninterrupted. Aro takes care of the rest.
What is included with my Aro Membership?
Aro is more than a box for your phone. It’s a platform designed to make it easy and rewarding to put down your phone. Your Aro Membership (required) includes the Aro app to set goals and track progress, motivational content to help you along the way, and complete access to the amazing Aro community to learn from and share with others on their journey with you.
When will I receive my Aro?
Reservations of the Aro Launch Edition will begin shipping in the fall of 2022. We are working night and day to get Aro in your hands. We promise.
Does Aro charge my phone?
Choosing to put your phone down to focus on what matters to you is awesome. Having to put your phone down because it’s running out of power is the worst. That’s why Aro is all about charging your phone while you recharge. Aro includes one wireless charging pad and four USB-C charging ports (cables included) so everyone can focus on life, not fighting over chargers.
Where should I put my Aro?
Wherever you want! High traffic areas like kitchen counters, mantels, and bookshelves, where you’ll see Aro and be reminded to use it, are popular. But some Aro users prefer a more out-of-the-way spot so when their phone is in Aro, it can be out of sight and out of mind. As long as it’s within reach of an electrical outlet, your Aro can live wherever is best for you.
