After launching their project on Kickstarter, the Innomdle Lab employees have done an impressive amount of work, creating and experiencing several varieties of Sgnl bracelets. Long-time testing allowed developing the ultimate model. The final version of the Sgnl bracelet got the current shape.

People can adjust the strap depending on the width of their wrist as it is done with standard watch bracelets. This month developers run beta testing with potential buyer involvement, which will be the last stage of testing before Sgnl mass production.

Now you can either stop looking for a quiet place for talking on your smartphone or getting it out of the pocket. The Sgnl bracelet transmits a vibration signal of an incoming call, after which you can press your finger to the ear and start talking.

Sgnl provides the same level of hearing as if you talk in person. In addition, there is no any external headset, the communication takes place in a tete-a-tete mode. A passer-by will never hear your conversation. For example, external noises produced by a large company leave minimal impact on the connection quality.
