Wearable Moment: 24-hour pre-order for 99 USD
We have already posted an article about "Moment", the smartwatch without a display. The device provides information via four resonators on its back. This is supposed to feel like someone gently touching your arm. The device connects to any Android or iOS device via Bluetooth and can be configured via an app. This way, directions from a navigation app can be transferred or a unique haptic pattern can be created for a caller.
Somatic Labs, the people behind "Moment" promise that your brain will be able to adapt to the haptic feedback after a short learning phase and you will be able to receive information without looking at a display. "Moment" might also be interesting for musicians and dancers, as it can be used as a metronome. An open API and an IFTTT system will allow you to connect "Moment" to your app or create your own usage scenarios.
"Moment" is now open for pre-orders via the website for a price of 99 USD. This offer is valid for 24 hours only until 11 pm PST (9 am CEST) via the website. The retail price of "Moment" will be 179 USD.
