Let’s face it; smart watches are a dime a dozen these days. They have become almost as cheap as the word smart itself, and you’d be hard-pressed finding a truly interesting smartwatch. Maybe that’s why the manufacturers of MAD Gaze Watch did not stop at calling their watch smart. They went two steps further by terming it the smartest watch ever produced, and a peek into the watch’s design and features confirm that they may not be so wrong after all.
Design and features
Mad Gaze’s unique selling point is the replacement of touch with gestures. From answering phone calls to replying messages, taking pictures, playing videos, or controlling slideshow, you can do just about anything on your watch with a single tap. The smartwatch has about 33 different finger, wrist, and hand gesture controls and shortcuts! Although they may appear cumbersome to master, there’s no doubt users will enjoy the ease of use as they get used to the device.
Easy personalized setup
MAD Gaze watch comes with a connector app that gives you the freedom to set up your preferences. Although there is a video manual that details all the preset gestures and their functions, you have the option to train your watch and not the other way round. This possibility gives room for unlimited customization, and it allows users to feel in total control.
A different level of accessibility
Even with the best UX, there’s only so much you can do with the tiny screen of watches before the functions start feeling cumbersome. MAD Gaze is the smartwatch that promises and delivers a totally different level of accessibility. The 33 gestures make it possible for the watch to serve as the universal remote control for all your IoT devices, whether they’re close to you or far away. Below is a quick summary of the preset gestures and their functions:
- Finger tap: Tap on the back of your forearm to switch modes, the back of your hand for shortcuts, and your fingertips for controls.
- Finger snap: Do a finger snap to answer a phone call or take a picture, etc.
- Knock on surface: Simply knock on a surface with your fingers or fist to trigger an action (or even tasks).
- Motions: Move your arms and turn wrists to play games via motion tracking.
Admittedly, it may take a while to master all the gestures; the manufacturers have no doubt you’ll agree it was worth your while when you finally do. And as mentioned earlier, you can customize the gestures to suit your habits better.
Instant communication and location sharing
MAD Gaze’s built-in walking tap allows for instant contact and location sharing between family members, friends, colleagues, etc. As long as the other party is within range, you can ask quick questions and get immediate replies with your watch! The built-in GPS can also act as your map or track your stats in any of the 10+ different exercise modes.
Built to suit your digital lifestyle
With a battery life of 1-2 days, you can trust MAD Gaze to keep you going for as long as you need it. Charging is quite fast, and you can get a full battery within a few hours of charging. It’s water-resistant and dust-proof qualities also ensure you can take it with you wherever you’re going. And the 16 vibrant colors of interchangeable straps make it suitable for various occasions. This wristwatch has everything you ever wanted in a smartwatch, and much more.
