SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most essential parts of living well is breathing clean air. With this in mind, Awair was developed to track toxins and chemicals in the air, while also providing personalized recommendations to help users stay safe and healthy.
First launched in fall 2015, Awair was developed by Ronald Ro, whose own personal story, after his baby was found suffering from eczema, served as the catalyst for the creation of Awair.
"After months of desperation, I realized there weren't many products in the marketplace that could help monitor my daughter's air, so I decided to build my own," said Ronald Ro, CEO and Co-Founder of Awair. "Awair complement you and your environment, while equipping you with the knowledge and support to thrive in your surroundings."
Awair has an elegant and modern aesthetic. Its intelligent sensors track CO2, chemicals (VOCs), and dust, while keeping tabs on the indoor temperature and humidity. Unlike other devices in the marketplace, Awair goes beyond passive monitoring and engages in active solutions to help improve indoor comfort and quality. Awair utilizes real-time data to deliver personal tips, helping you keep your air safe. Whether you are focused on wellness, sleep, productivity, allergies, or childcare, Awair provides options to customize your experience.
Awair can also connect with smart products like Nest, Amazon Echo, and IFTTT to automatically optimize your air throughout the day. You can see your air quality score on your device or on the app, where you can track improvements over time.
This Holiday season, Awair has introduced their new product "Glow" and a limited "Baby" edition Awair. Both are perfect for holiday gift-giving and turning a new leaf in the New Year.
Launched on December 1st, Awair Glow plugs directly into the wall and automatically activates your "non-smart" devices the instance your air quality drops. Glow also has a beautiful night light that activates by motion, touch, or through your Awair app, making it ideal for bedrooms, nurseries, and hallways.
The limited "Baby" edition Awair is specially designed for nurseries or kid's rooms. The wood casing has been replaced with a subtle, charming copolymer which comes in two colors: Ocean and Baby Rose.
With the initial shipments of Awair selling out quickly, Bitfinder, the makers of Awair, recently closed a $4.5 million series A round of funding led by Altos Ventures and with participation from Samsung Ventures. Awair has already expanded retail presence to Asia and Europe, and plans are to continue the global retail footprint.
Awair is available for $199 on getawair.com, amazon.com, and other leading global retailers.
Awair's mission is to empower you with the knowledge, motivation and confidence to thrive in your environment. Bitfinder (Awair) was founded in 2013 by Ronald Ro, CEO and Kevin Cho, CTO and is located in San Francisco, CA.
