Telling the time with your Sunu Band

Press or click the HOME button to enable the Haptic Watch. Sunu Band’s haptic watch allows you to read the time via descreet vibratory pulses. Sunu Band also functions as a ‘talking watch’ if voice service is enabled.

The Haptic Watch tells the time through a series of LONG or SHORT pulses. Each pulse has a numeric value:

Short pulse: Each short pulse has a numeric value equal to one (1).

Long pulse: Each long pulse has a numeric value equal to five (5).

The time, whether the hour or minutes, is derived by summing up the numeric values of the pulses that were provided.

The hour and minutes are read separately, depending on how you swipe on the touchpad.

Swipe-In for the hour: Count the number of pulses that you feel. Next add up the numeric values for each to derive the hour of the day. For example, if you feel:

  • Three short pulses: the hour is at 3 o’clock.
  • One long pulse: the hour is at 5 o’clock.
  • Two long pulses and one short pulse: the hour is at 11 o’clock.

Swipe-Out for the minutes: The minutes are presented in two parts (or group of pulses) separated by a brief pause. The first group of pulses indicate the tens of minutes that have passed the hour or ‘tens-passed’. The corresponding numeric values for this group of pulses is multiplied by 10. In other words:

  • Each short pulse that you feel equals 10.
  • Each long pulse that you feel equals 50.

After a brief pause, the next group of pulses relays individual minutes. 

The corresponding numeric values for this group of pulses is now back to:

  • Each short pulse equal 1.
  • Each long pulse equal 2. 

Add up the number of pulses that you feel with their corresponding values in order to derive the exact minutes that have passed the hour. Here are some examples:
