The Haptica Braille timepiece allows the user to get a quick and accurate time reading, taking it a step above previous Braille watches, which simply allow the user to move and feel the watch hands in relation to the watch face, which can be quite difficult to use.

Digital watches that use sound to communicate the time will disturb those around the wearer. With the Haptica, the watch wearer can get a real-time readout in Braille, in a military time format, allowing them to quickly and discretely check the time. By quickly passing their finger over their watch, they can find out what time it is, without the inaccuracies and disturbances of previous watch designs.
