Many people who owned height-adjustable desks are still unaware of the benefits they can still get from it. Aside from the fact they can sit and stand while working, some height-adjustable desks such as FlexiSpot’s Electric Height Adjustable Standing Desk: 3-Stage C-Leg Option E7 is equipped with a sit-stand reminder system that alerts you when it’s time to stand and can be turned on or off anytime based on your workflow.
Comfort and forgetfulness were the top two reasons why some of us forget to alternate the sitting and standing work position. When you’re too invested or absorbed in a task, sometimes we forget to stand at all, and this makes the height-adjustable desks useless.
In this article, we’ll discuss the types and why should you invest in a standing desk with a reminder system.
The Types of Sit-Stand Reminder Tools
Desktop Apps for Windows, Linux, and macOS. Tech companies are now investing into a healthier lifestyle for their consumers, thus the reminder apps. These are created to ensure that you take a break from time to time, and to avoid ending up sore, strained, and fatigued because of it. There the Time Out for macOS exclusive, Break Timer for Chrome Extension, and Awareness for Windows and MacOS.
Control Panel with Customizable Presets: This type of sit-stand reminder tool features three or four memory buttons so users can program their preferred height settings. All they have to do is press either of the buttons “1,” “2,” or “3” when the sit-stand reminder system alerts them that it’s time to change positions. Included in the digital display also includes up and down buttons and the desk’s exact height in real-time.
Bluetooth Standing Desk App: Some sit-stand desks feature a Bluetooth receiver plugged into the control box. It’s a standing desk app (available for iPhone and Android users) that allows users to customize sit-stand reminders to their preferred schedule. What differs this reminder tool from the customizable presets is that you can program memory presets that are frequently used, and can both be used manually right from their smartphone.
