Apple may have just rolled out its newest smartwatch series--certainly an upgrade from its non-waterproof gadgets--but there are still some functions of the Series 2 Apple watch that don't suit everyone's needs, particularly those who visually impaired, or even blind.
That's why Dot, Inc., a startup in South Korea, created the world's first functional Braille smartwatch to assist the blind, according to Syfy Wire.

The strap-on wristwatch operates with four sets of six balls, which raise and lower magnetically. As a result, the device is able to display four Brazille characters simultaneously, enabling it to transform into a stopwatch, alarm and timer.
And just like a traditional smartwatch, it is equipped with an Internet connection as well as display text messages and navigate.
The Braille smartwatches are expected to run $200 and are available for shipping in April.
