No, but it's interesting that they've considered the interface rather than
using the common one supported by generic clock chips. Phone interfaces are
rarely good for use in a semi-conscious state, and are inclined to run out
of battery charge.

“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the
western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an
utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life
forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are
a pretty neat idea.”
