Multiple reminders, custom alarms key trends in smart pillboxes line

Makers are introducing models with as many as 18 reminders. Soothing music and voice prompts are increasingly used as alarm options.


  • Multiple reminders supported: More companies are developing products capable of issuing several alerts. Some units allow users to preset up to eight pill reminders at one time within a 24hr time period, up from the previous three, four and six reminders. A few variants enable as many as 18 reminders. A number of low-end versions adopt the countdown method as well.
  • Personalized alarms: Soothing music and voice prompts are gaining popularity as alarm options. Several upscale pillboxes feature a sound recorder.
  • Aesthetic upgrades: The latest models come in brighter colors such as blue, yellow, red and green, and feature contrasting hues for the inner and outer boxes. Each compartment may also be assigned a shade for easier identification.
  • Novelty designs: For improved portability, some units come with wristbands and may be worn as a watch.
