The Sgnl wristband uses bone conduction to allow the wearer to take calls through their fingers, simply by pressing them to their ear

Even with all the advances in smartphone technology, it can still be hard to hear a phone call clearly. South Korea-based Innomdle Lab, a startup spun out of Samsung’s incubator, thinks that it might be easier if we changed the medium. Its latest development, the Sgnl wristband, uses bone conduction to let uses hear calls through their fingers.

Once the band is synced up to a phone, it can receive calls, which the wearer can hear by touching a finger to their ear. The band also serves as a fitness tracker and has notification abilities. The band can be fitted to an analog or smart watch as well, for those who want to incorporate it into their current accessories. The band should start shipping out in March to customers who preordered it during its Kickstarter campaign.
