Boots Has Introduced A New Range Of Clocks And Lamps To Help Combat Seasonal Affective Disorder As The Clocks Go Back
According to statistics taken from NHS Direct, 1 in 8 people in the UK suffer from a mild form of ‘winter blues’ and 1 in 50 people are diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
In recognition of this Boots has introduced a range of clocks and lamps which specifically look to help alleviate the symptoms of SAD, from the most mild of cases through to the more chronically affected.
SAD lamps work on the principle that SAD is directly correlated to the amount of exposure to sunlight that individuals experience, which is reduced in the winter months. One theory is that light stimulates hormone levels in the specific part of the brain that affects mood, appetite and sleep patterns. Therefore if those people who suffer from SAD can increase their exposure to light through light therapy, then their mood could be lifted to levels consistent with that of the spring and summer seasons. Lamps and lightboxes used in light therapy have a very intense light – for example, an ordinary light bulb gives out light measuring between 200 – 500 lux, whereas a light therapy lamp tends to have a minimum output of 2500 lux. It is thought that light therapy helps symptoms of SAD in up to 67% of sufferers.
There are eleven clocks and lamps in the range, ten of which come from the renowned brand Lumie, a specialist in light therapy. The range spans body clocks to help the body combat the darker mornings through to fully medically certified products that can help alleviate the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
The clocks work on the principle of using gradually increasing simulated natural sunlight, therefore aligning your internal bodyclock and increasing the hormones that produce energy, leaving your body more refreshed and alert. The SAD lamps and lightboxes can be used to help the more chronic symptoms of SAD by creating a brighter light for use at any time of day; the theory is that being in close proximity to this light can increase the levels of melatonin and cortisol, to help induce a positive mood and stimulate energy levels.
David Hurst, Healthcare Buyer for boots.com said: “We recognise that the often mixed weather Britain experiences can leave many people with either unspecified feelings of ‘winter blues’ or in more severe cases the diagnosis of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Research shows that using a special bright light can improve symptoms of SAD and as we believe that the turning back of the clocks in October can signal the start of winter for many, we feel this is the perfect time to introduce this range of SAD lamps and clocks that could help lift people’s spirits.”

Megalith’s signature 8212 Quartz Men’s Watch oozes with elegance and functionality
NEW YORK, 2022-Mar-17 — /EPR RETAIL NEWS/ — Among all of our carefully curated selection of timepieces we proudly showcase to offer you the cream of the crop among masculine, stylish watches, one definitively stands out.
Our signature 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band is one step ahead in both elegance and functionality from your average watch.
Aside from having its internal composition made with top-of-the-line modern watchmaking craftsmanship and featuring a quartz crystal-powered design, it packs an extra layer of masculinity in it.
Its design’s a tribute to the watches worn by fighter aces and commanders of the sky. Men of unparalleled skill for which precision was everything and the tools they needed at their disposal could not be anything but.
As such, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band offers one of the most precise, if not the most precise, time-telling display on his face. To not even begin to mention its confident, elegant design, which combines both the timeless elegance of analog timepieces of yore. On top of that, it also, of course, has all the features a jet pilot needs for and visually showcases all the imposing aesthetics those features imply.
All in all, every aforementioned feature makes up for an iconic design exuberating both style and confidence. Not for nothing, it has become a flagship, and iconic piece Megalith Watches proudly offers to our distinguished clientele.
The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features
Precision is the name of the game with the 8212 models. Since its imposing design does include extra features a jet pilot is thankful for, nubile watch aficionados might be intimidated by it. Thus, in order for you to take full advantage of the possibilities this particular design affords you, let’s break down such features.
The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features a Chronograph
Do not let yourself get intimidated by the name chronograph, more colloquially known as ‘stopwatch.’ It’s simply one very intuitive feature of watches that, although making it look more complex, makes its use surprisingly easier.
In simple terms, a chronograph is a type of watch with additional dials on its face used to more precisely keep track of elapsed time. It typically has two or three separate dials, one of which tracks minutes, another which tracks hour, and a third which may track seconds either continuously or in intervals.
You do this by using the chronograph’s stopwatch function, which allows the user to time intervals or measure elapsed time.
To use a chronograph, start by pressing a button to activate the timer. Then begin timing whatever it is you are trying to measure. When finished, press the button again to stop the timer. The time elapsed remains displayed on the dials.
Chronographs often see use by athletes, surgeons, and, of course, pilots and other professionals who need to keep track of time intervals. They are also a feature of scientific experiments wherein measuring time is crucial. In short, the chronograph makes for a more precise measurement of time for professionals and, thus, surely will help you to keep track of it as well.
A Dash of a Fighter Jet Dashboard in Its Design
Reminiscent of a jet dashboard, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band features a chronograph on its clockface. More commonly referred to as ‘those other three little clocks within the clock,’ a chronograph is another practical and visually appealing feature of watches with more functionalities.
Each of the extra faces is there to display a different measure of chronological timekeeping for extra precision. You will almost always find one tiny clock face to display the sixty minutes that make up an hour. They are often displayed in a wheel showing the numbers ’60’, ’20’, and ’40’ clockwise from the top in that order. In order to differentiate it from the other faces of similar size, the minutes’ clockface has concentric ripple-like circles within it.
Another one of its faces is, of course, all about charting the sixty seconds that make up a minute in order to track them. The clock face showcases the numbers ’60’, ’15’, ’30’, and ’45’ spread out clockwise from the top.
Lastly, the other face of the trio that makes up the chronograph showcases the twenty-four hours of the day. Showcasing the numbers’ 24′, ‘6’, ’12’, and ’18’ clockwise when looked from the top, the wheel instantly tells what hour of the day currently is. The design of the circle itself is rather bare, not even featuring a frame. Instead, it had one clock hand that stands out very well from the rest of the design for easy tracking.
As a stylish little nod to the aforementioned jet dashboard design theme, in the hour displaying chronograph, there’s a jetliner. The jetliner’s nose, highlighted in red, acts as the arrow pointing to what hour of the day it is.
8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band Features a Tachymeter
A tachymeter is a tool used to measure the speed of an object, and it does this by measuring the time it took for said object to travel a certain distance. Said time measure can then go into use for calculating the speed of the object measured.
Tachymeters are a fairly common feature of watches; they are popular with race drives and also pilots, who use them to measure ground speeds during takeoff and landing.
The 8212 Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band’s Tachymeter
As is the case with most wristwatches featuring a tachymeter, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band’s one lays on its rim. Etched on the ‘rim’ of the lock, the circular frame in which the clock sits inside of the tachymeter is the numbers written on it. Said numbers run counter clock-wisely from 60 up to 700 with differently spaced intervals between them.
The tachymeter is just an extra scale that can help you measure both time and speed. To use it, just start the chronograph to measure the object or event you seek to measure and stop once done. The clock’s second hand will point out to both the seconds marked inside the clock and to the distance marked on the tachymeter, usually represented in miles.
Besides the obvious advantage the tachymeter affords for time measuring, it also has aesthetic value. The numbers etched around the rim of the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band give it an air of complexity hard to replicate for more plain watches.
The 8212s Quartz Men Watch with Stainless Steel Band A Megalith Staple
As mentioned before, the 8212 quartz men watch with stainless steel band is one of our signature timepieces at Megalith. And just like the rest of our timepieces, we are proud of being able to offer them to the mature, up and coming man of today at an affordable price.
