The Dot works in a pretty straightforward manner. Underneath the dial are four motorized modules, each with six possible dots. Each dot can be raised or lowered individually, so the Dot can display up to four braille characters at a time. The wearer then just reads the dial as he or she would a piece of paper with braille on it. The dial is concave to offer a protective rim around the braille modules themselves, making it easier to wear the watch day in and day out. The Dot Watch lets you experience time in a completely new way: without sound, just by yourself. It provides direct access to all the practical features you need so many times throughout each day: Time and Date, Alarm Clock, Timer and Stopwatch. It even tells you the time down to the second. Every text message you receive on the smartphone is instantly translated to Braille and forwarded to your Dot Watch. Read it fast and comfortably with the intuitive touch controls on the watch face and customizable Auto-Scroll. Directly save important messages to check again later. The Dot Watch unleashes it's full potential to those who can read Braille. But it's also the perfect device to get you started: The Dot Watch Braille learning program is a simple, intuitive and entertaining way to learn and practice Braille letters and words.
