The Dot braille smartwatch is finally getting shipped out to patient buyers


SEOUL — Next week, the Dot smartwatch will finally hit shelves, offering a sleek timepiece for the blind.

The watch is coming to the market after nearly three years of repeated stops and starts.

Unlike most assistive smartwatches for the blind which rely on audio prompts, the Dot displays messages four braille characters at a time on its screen.

Its round face displays four cells of six balls each, and allows users to send simple replies or actions back through its two side buttons.
