A new smartwatch band about to hit Kickstarter will make toggling by your Moto 360 or different Android Wear device really easy you would not even have to touch the display. The Aria wearable clip is a “gesture controller for wearable units” — in other words, it lets you control your smartwatch without touching it.
The Aria is an add-on band that solves this occasional frustration by measuring movement within the wrist to control smartwatch with finger gestures. Compatible with Android Wear & the Pebble Time, their module slots into an existing band and allows you to move through a watch’s interface without tapping the display or using controls on the side of the watch face. As an Aria team member pointed out to TechCrunch in this video, if you’re brushing your teeth or drinking a cup of coffee, it would be good to have access to your smartwatch.
The band is ideal for smartwatch wearers who find it hard to navigate the watch face by touching the display. Android has already launched features to reduce the necessity for tapping the display, like its newest update that permits you to flick your wrist to toggle between screens.
