The Monohm Runcible is a cell phone. It tells time. It can surf the Web, send text messages, and be upgraded as new technology becomes available. But that's about it.

The Runcible isn't a fitness tracker, doesn't use apps, and will never beep or buzz at you. With a smooth, convex back that's available in a variety of nature-inspired patterns, it's an aesthetically pleasing, minimalist cell phone with a sleek, spare design. 

But what’s really sweet about the Monohm Runcible is that it comes with planned non-obsolesce. All its parts can be removed, repaired, and upgraded. Who knows? You might even be able to bequeath it to your children.
