Sgnl is a smart strap that connects to your phone or smartwatch. You can hear a caller's voice by placing a fingertip to your ear as you speak.Your voice is picked up through a microphone embedded in the watch strap

When a voice signal is received, Sgnl will generate vibration through its Body Conduction Unit (BCU). This transmits the vibration through your hand to your fingertip. Your phone calls are clear and crisp even in loud spaces.

When you place your fingertip to your ear, the vibration echoes the message within the closed space of your ear. You don't have to worry about anyone listening in your conversation.

Sgnl can be worn with classic watches or smart watches. You can preorder one when you pledge $239 on their Kickstarter page.
