Are you one of those people that’s addicted to checking their stats and follower count of their social media accounts on their phone every five minutes? I plead guilty! The Lametric Time device brings a more convenient way to continuously check up on your Instagram, Facebook or YouTube followers. It’s a smart desktop clock display that hooks up to the internet to show a live counter of your fans and following from your favorite apps.
What is the Lametric Time?
Originally a smart clock display, this smart LED block connects to several of your favorite apps and social networks to display the single metric you care about. Next to setting it up with your YouTube, Instagram or Twitter follower count you can have the Lametric show incoming earnings on Paypal, a news feed of your choosing or any custom messages and LED icons you want to put up for display. The possibilities are near endless.
You’ll just have to plug in the Lametric time, connect it to Wifi and use the associated app to set up the connections and messages. You’ll never have to take out your phone again for checking the info that matters.
These are some of the apps and metrics you can connect to Lametric:
- Sonos (show currently playing song)
- YouTube subscribers
- Twitch count
- Facebook likes
- Twitter followers
- Instagram followers
- Stock quotes (incl. Bitcoin)
- Google Analytics
- Slack notifications
- and much more…
The Lametric Time also has some onboard speakers, to play notification sounds and radio. Yes, this device can still be a regular clock radio if you want to.

The Lametric Wifi Smart clock is a very cleverly designed device, but it’s not the only one of its kind out there. There are a couple of alternatives we found for you if you’re keen on having a hardware social media counter.
Smiirl social media counter
The Smiirl is a more expensive social following counter, but it has a traditional split-flap mechanism instead of LED, which puts it +10 hipster over the Lametric. It will probably blend better in store interiors. You’ll have to get one for each social network you want to connect to though.
The FlapIt is also a split-flap display like Smiirl, but this one has support for multiple predefined social networks (also on a split-flap). It’s about the same price as the Smiirl
DIY Social Media Counter
