Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
There are so many watches on the market nowadays each individual, even for those with visual impairments. However, many of these watches lack privacy and can disrupt people around the wearer. A new company coined Eone has recently released a sleek, discreet timepiece called the Bradley, a tactile timepiece designed with everyone in mind.
The company’s philosophy states: “We believe that good design is not exclusive but inclusive.” Their debut product was inspired by Brad Snyder, an ex naval-officer who lost his eyesight in an explosion in Afghanistan. Eone wanted to create a timepiece that could accommodate those with or without vision impairments equally. With the Bradley, wearers can check the time discreetly during meetings, interviews, in dark movie theatres and more! In lieu of standard watch hands, time is indicated by two ball bearings–one indicating minutes (on top) and the other indicating hours (on the side).
