The 'Qibla' smartwatch concept has been designed as an accessory for Muslim users without sight to help them partake in daily prayers in a way that is accessible and simplistic.

Designed by Gyu Hyung Han, the smartwatch works by tracking the direction of Mecca as well as the position of the sun to ensure that they always have the information they need to partake in their daily ritual. The device features an all-black design that is finished with a gold rim that is meant to be felt with the fingers instead of seen to ensure that the user doesn't have to rely on audio or visual feedback.

The 'Qibla' smartwatch concept features GPS technology to support users when they are called to prayer.
