Navigo is a digital vibrating bracelet that contains four modes which are a compass, navigation, proximity, and watch. The device puts all that information on the user’s wrist. An end cap hides a USB port which can be used to charge the bracelet or update the software via a computer.

It communicates through vibration and guides the wearer according to the selected function. For example, in compass mode, it will vibrate to point them north.

In proximity mode, Navigo can lead them to a pre-set location or another designated Navigo wearer. This would be useful for tracking down their kids or their car if the wearer doesn’t have a good sense of direction.

When linked to a smartphone through Bluetooth in navigation mode, the bracelet can guide them to any destination they’ve saved on that device. And the watch function will ensure the wearer always arrives on time. Navigo is currently on Quirky, where the designers are working to manufacture and release it.
