The Moment Smartwatch functions as a device that is focused on the tactile rather than featuring the complex visuals that are seen on most other smartwatches.

Designed by 'Somatic Labs' after a successful crowdfunding project, the smartwatches come in the form of a square-shaped black block that uses light and vibrations to indicate various pieces of information to the user. The watch has features such as caller ID that comes in the form of vibration patterns that are specific to the person calling and a tactile compass that connects to GPS. The watch reveals the passage of time through circular vibrations around the wrist.

Since the entire purpose of the smartwatch came to be so that users could keep their eyes off of their phone screens, the Moment Smartwatch is able to function as almost any other, except for the fact that it opts out of featuring distracting visuals.
