Acustica bills themselves as "The Swiss Watch for all senses"". Joe is joined by Stephan Morker from the Swiss Association Of and For the Blind to learn more about this watch which includes Swiss Quartz movement, a vibration module, and speech output among other features. They are looking for a U.S.-based distributor and hope to be ready for release by Christmas 2017.

I really wonder when they will find a US distributor for this watch. Would love to see it become available here.

Nearly three years later, the watch is still not available here in the US. Too bad, I love the concept.
