“The nocturnal world of international DJing is all about keeping time: a top DJ should to be aware of the speed of each piece of music in his library. I thought it would be useful for DJ’s to have a simple graphic solution to calculating BPM’s built in to the watch itself."
"To calculate the bpm of a track: wait until the seconds hand aligns at 9, 12 and 3 on the watch (denoted by a full white circle) and start counting the quarter notes/beats as you’re listening to the music. It's much easier with House/Techno music as the bass drum usually falls on these quarter note beats.
You'll see the white circles gradually filling up with red and blue, stop counting when the white circle appears again. Multiply the count by four and you have the bpm.On the rear of the watch are some basic bpm ranges for a selection of current dance music genres".
Tom Middleton 2010
Created by a DJ for DJs, Tom Middleton has channeled his experience into this design. A 15 second animation helps calculate the beats-per-minute for any piece of music: count the quarter note beats while the circles fill with colour, multiply the result by four and you have the bpm.
