Microsoft Azure-based Hug Smartwatch comes with gesture controls

Hug Innovation, an Indian technology start-up, launched the gesture-based Hug Smartwatch. Unlike most smartwatches that  runs on Google's Android Wear, Hug Smartwatch is built on Microsoft's Azure platform and allows users to control connected gadgets including Oculus Rift and Sphero, with simple wave of the hand.

It features "Contextual Intelligence" that can instinctively understand what you are trying to do with your arm movement. Users can perform tasks like dimming room lights, playing music and surfing video online with simple hand gestures.

The smartwatch is equipped with a nine-axis sensor made up of a three-axis gyroscope, a three-axis accelerometer and a three-axis magnetometer. The device allows users to make calls, find devices, play music, track physical activity and nutrition, and continuously monitors heart rate as well. There is also a personal safety feature like an SOS button and fatigue detection to ensure personal safety for consumers, which can also be activate by gesture controls.

The Hug Smartwatch comes with 1.6-inch (240 x 240) transflective LCD display with a layer of Asahi Dragontrail glass and is equipped with MediaTek MT2502C processor, 128MB RAM and 2GB internal storage. It is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows devices and pairs with them via Bluetooth 4.0. It weighs 46g, is 11.2 mm thick at the watchcase and the removable strap measures 22mm wide.

There are no details on the pricing yet, but Hug Innovation did say that the smartwatch will be exclusively available on Flipkart.
