Usually, a person who does not know how to read Braille cannot avail exclusive facilities like Braille libraries and so on. But here, Dot Corporation has even introduced tutorials to learn Braille so that any person can use the watch. I have used talking watches which is not easily available. We can set alarms and even know time. But its main drawback is that users cannot adjust the volume. Hopefully, this new Braille smartwatch will be introduced in India at cheaper rates in months to come- Husna Ameen,
