Lose the dorky Bluetooth headset with the Sgnl smart strap

At one point in time, it seemed like the smartwatch was all but dead in the water: most of them boasted sluggish performance and lack of truly must-have features that prevented them from becoming anything more than just a novelty. The deluge of them over the past recent years didn’t help matters, either.

Now, though, seems to be a sort of renaissance for the much-heralded smartwatch with the impending releases of products like the Apple Watch Series 2 and Samsung Gear S3 — at least if the renaissance means they’re finally becoming what they should have been in the first place. Alongside these fresh releases is the Sgnl, Innomdle Lab’s Bluetooth-enabled smart strap that functions by itself or as a companion to a smartwatch to let users conduct phone calls with just the tip of their finger.
