Q & A
We have received many questions regarding our Braille smart watch lately.
So for this month’s newsletter we decided to put together a little Q & A.
1. Does the Braille smart watch support both iOS and Android devices?
Yes, our product is supported by both iOS and Android.
2. Can the watch work without being connected to a mobile device?
The watch will have to be connected to a mobile device in order to receive notifications. However, you will be able to check the time without the watch being connected.
3. Can I pre-order the watch?
If you would like to pre-order our product please consider leaving your phone number, address, country of residence, and quantity desired at www.dotincorp.com under the section “Join our pre-order list”.
4. I would like to beta test the smart watch.
Dot Incorporation greatly appreciates your willingness to support us by testing the Braille smart watch. We value all of our customers and we will do our best to allow you test the product.
There are a few options for testing:
-> For NGOs and organizations, please contact us via email and tell us where the office is located and we shall contact you as soon as possible
-> For individuals we will do our best to arrange a meeting closest to your residence. Please tell us via email the place of your residence and we will reply as soon as possible with a proposed solution.
-> For groups, please tell us via email how many units you need, where the trial will be conducted, and although not required, your past experience in testing products and we will be in contact shortly.
5. Do you have a video about your product?
6. Can you read e-books on your device?
Yes. Although e-books can be read using the DOT we understand that this may not be the most convenient option. To address this we are currently in the process of designing a DOT pad to encourage user’s literacy and give access to additional information. This DOT pad will give user access to data such as mathematics, shapes, and lengthy e-texts.
