World's first smartwatch for the blind on sale next month
The world’s first smartwatch specifically designed for the blind people is all set to hit the markets next month.
Called Dot Smartwatch, it uses braille-capabilities and tells time to visually impaired user.
The front of the watch has four cells of six tiny moving parts that provide tactile feedback to the user. Each of the four cells represent a character and at a time four characters can be displayed.
The battery can last for seven days and can connect to any smartphone through Bluetooth. So it can show all the text information received from the smartphone and any of its applications and services.
The company Dot says 100,000 of the watches will be made available in the first batch this year.
