The HOT Watch, (an acronym for Hands On Talk) may not be the most well-known smartwatch, but that could all change very soon. The e-ink touchscreen timepiece brings a near-smartphone experience to your wrist. The HOT Watch, which is still running its Kickstarter campaign, is capable of making and receiving phone calls, playing music on your phone, and displaying notifications among other tasks.
It syncs with your iOS or Android smartphone and can be controlled via its accompanying app. The HOT Watch comes with speakers embedded inside its wristband and uses an audio technology that bounces sound off the palm of your hand into your ear to keep conversations private. The watch relies on gestures and swipes for navigation, meaning you can trace the letter “A” to get to the app screen or wave goodbye to hang up a phone call.
