Wristbands that can display the notifications you receive on your phone can be quite a headache whenever you are trying to navigate between those on a touch screen that measures somewhere around two inches. Uno Notebad is a prototype wearable that aims to solve this problem in an original way.
Uno Noteband is the first wrist band to embed a Spritz toolkit. If you don't know what that is, Spritz is a speed-reading technology that improves the user's speed of reading and removes the need for scrolling down through lengthy messages by flashing the words. Basically, as soon as you receive a message or an email, and you don't want to take out your phone to read it, you can simply tap the display of the wristband and the device will help you read the message automatically scrolling it.
Furthermore, the Uno Notebad also comes with several fitness trackers that can measure the amount of calories that you've burned, the hours of sleep that you've been getting and the number of steps yo've taken. This device works with Google Fit (Android) as well as HealthKit (iOS) so you won't have any compatibility issues. Last but not least, the wrist band will also attract a few gamers as it can display game invites from Steam, Xbox and Playstation services as notifications on its screen.
Uno Noteband is currently involved in an IndieGoGo funds gathering campaign and is estimated to become available on the market in April 2015. The product will cost $99 and, as far as I can tell, the only possible downside might be its battery life, but we will just have to wait and find out exactly how it fares before criticizing it.
