Braille watches are wearable timepieces used by the blind or visually impaired. The two most popular types are the classic analog design, in which the touchable face sits behind a glass that’s lifted when the user wants to tell the time. The clock-hands are made to remain firm as the user touches them to locate their position, but be aware that some watches are made more securely than others. The more contemporary digital designs create dots (like braille) that change position as the time changes. Also popular are electronic talking watches that tell the time at the touch of a button. These can be useful for more active users. Many braille watches are made with bands that are clasp-free.
