The 2016 MWC Barcelona has many surprises this year… And not just any where! Between smart new robots, Automotive News, new materials or wearables, innovations are everywhere. The young startup Dot has well understood the challenges of the Spanish show and has developed, a new version of his smart watch for the blind. A gesture at once selfless and innovative.
A Watch Smart and Intelligent, Dedicated to the Blind
The first version of this connected to the rectangular design watch, similar to be mistaken for an activity tracker, was released last year. The Korean startup immediately understood the challenges of this wearable. Thus, on the occasion of the 2016 MWC in Barcelona, the company decided to introduce a new model. Their goal? Allow the visually impaired to stay connected, the image of any other person, to the outside world. The old version was marketed in the United States since December 2015 at a price of 300 dollars, or about 270 euros.
A Smartwatch in Braille
The design of the new version of this smart watch is much more urban and less sporty. The company has relied on a more rounded and worked look. Composed of 30 brailles points, the watch will be able to display time or transcribe messages. With a battery life of up to 7 days, the smartwatch is paired to an available application on Android or IOS.
Has the difference of a Apple Watch or a Samsung Gear S2, the watch does not offer features or gadgets to no end. Korean society Dot, in collaboration with SK Telecom company another Korean, wanted to focus his wearable on reading time and messages of ‘private’ way. A consideration for blind people that they will probably be pleased.
Its price should around 290 to 300 dollars, just as the luxury version of a2zgov, or about 260 to 270 euros. This smart watch Dot has therefore a cost to be taken into account, but the opportunities it offers to the blind people make all the difference. Its marketing to the general public will begin next October.
