Welcome To iQibla Team
Younes, the founder of iQibla, is a young Arab, a devout Muslim. He got his master’s degree from Universite de Poitiers in France in Telecommunications and Multimedia in 2012. During this period, he was often annoyed with the wrong direction of Qibla.
He wanted to find a watch that can remind Muslims with accurate prayer times based on the current location and time zone. Although he searched diligently for it but no watch met all the requirements.
In the summer of 2019, Younes visited Dubai.When having dinner with his India friend Rajesh, former Nokia Support Manager. They discussed about this.”We can work together to create an exclusive watch for Muslims. It is different from any watch we have seen before. Let’s see how to do it.” Rajesh said.
Rajesh thought of his old friend Jack Shao in China.
Jack Shao founded a Sino Japanese joint venture Shenzhen UMEOX Innovation Technology Co., Ltd. in 2007. In the 10 years they knew, UMEOX developed many innovative products from mobile phones to watches.
UMEOX developed the world’s first 3G Android smart watch, and KickStarter raised more than usd1030000.
300000 pcs GSM smart watches developed by UMEOX were sold, becoming the sales champion in Germany.
UMEOX developed the first Chinese Bluetooth watch OmeteX to enter the Japanese market.
So Rajesh, Younes and Jack Shao made an appointment to hold a seminar in Shenzhen, China in August.
After the product functions are defined, the UMEOX team has invested a lot of manpower and material resources in the research of this Qibla watch.
The process is not as smooth as expected.First, we need to solve the problem of accurate Qibla orientation positioning. iQibla watch uses high-precision compass and GPS to solve the problem of accuracy.
This is a watch made for our old friends. We should not only be the first in the world, but also be the most popular among Muslim friends. ” Jack Shao said.
Feel free to send us your suggestions for improvement after using it, and we will reward part of the revenue from the turnover to the participating users, so let us build one of the best Qibla watches in the world together.
