DALLAS, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PH Technical Labs (PHTL) announced the launch of HOT Band this morning. PHTL's patented smart band comes in two forms, the Audio Fob and the Smart Fob, to enhance the functionality of any kind of watch. With each gadget pre-attached to fashionable bands that replace the strap on one's existing watch, the Audio Fob adds a private calling feature to smartwatches and classic watches while the Smart Fob provides both smart features and fitness tracking to regular watches.
HOT Band's Audio and Smart Fobs come with a CSR Bluetooth chip that provides a stable and long-range connection. Apple Watch owners are now able to have a totally private call with HOT Band, and other smartwatch users that do not have any calling feature, including those with a Pebble smartwatch, can keep their phones tucked away as they speak to people from their wrists.
The Smart Fob's utilization of the CSR's Bluetooth Low Energy technology allows regular watch users to take advantage of fitness features alongside various smart capabilities, such as phone notifications, weather, music control, and more. PHTL CEO Shariq Hamid stated, "We are thrilled to launch HOT Band. By using our patented Hands-On-Talk technology, HOT Band will provide options for people to convert their existing watch to a smart watch or make their current smart watch even smarter."
With the technology already operational and a Kickstarter campaign that will launch at 11 AM ET today to fund mass production costs, the next step for PHTL is bringing HOT Band to market.
PHTL is the owner of the patent for Hands-On-Talk technology (patent #9152130, #9002420, #8855729, and #8515505), a parabolic deflector of sound off of one's palm and into one's ear. PHTL also owns the patents for various other technologies (patent #8228382, #7651220, and #8325230.) For more information, please visit the Kickstarter page at www.hotwatchband.com.
