  1. Ingram Keller

    I highly recommend it, especially for Deaf people, who will help you wake you up with a vibration-watch !! For me, he is like a life assistant because everything is what you need
    e.g. timer, countdown timer, application notification, text message ringtone, weather and there is also an interesting matter, e.g. if you cannot find your phone, it is in the band the function find device, i.e. your phone, it beeps even if you have a muted phone 🙂 It’s worth having such a band for everyday life;)
