Vibrating accessories are all over the place. We recently had a vibrating handbag by Esquire. And now here comes another gem. This time the vibrations will set your pulse racing. Quite literally.
The new Vibrating Alarm Watch designed by Engio is actually a product for the hearing impaired people. It doesn’t quite tell the time but it alerts the wearer in case of an emergency.
It has multidirectional microphones integrated into the strap that are designed to pick up any sudden or drastic changes amongst an ambient sound level. It can also detect specially-assigned frequencies besides fire and smoke alarms, burglary alarms, or other public alarms.
Once the sound has been detected as an alarm the watch goes into vibrating mode and the wearer is alerted of the situation.
