South Korean startup Dot has spent three years developing its smartwatch for the visually impaired. Previous smartwatches for the visually impaired have relied on audio prompts, which can be disruptive. Instead, Dot’s watch, which has a battery life of up to seven days, displays four Braille characters in real time. the Dot watch can connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth, and receive information from apps like Whatsapp, Google Maps and Messenger.
