Smart Watchband Answers Calls with a Fingertip to Ear
South Korea – The Sgnl smart strap uses Bluetooth to connect calls coming in to a wearer’s phone. The smart strap vibrates to indicate that someone is calling, and wearers answer by raising their arm to put a fingertip to their ear.
Sound vibrations travel from the strap through the hand and finger and into the ear. Wearers speak into a small microphone on the strap. Because of the direct contact with the ear, privacy is ensured. No one other than the wearer of the strap will be able to hear the call. Each Sgnl package includes the tools necessary to swap straps, allowing both conventional and smart watches to integrate the smart strap. The Sgnl app can send reminders and helps users track their calls and messages.
