If you are the type of person who really needs to see his or her notifications, then perhaps you should invest in the EMBRACE+. The EMBRACE+ is a smart bracelet that lights up when you receive notifications on your mobile device.
It will light up upon receiving an e-mail, message, and even Facebook notifications. It is possible to use the EMBRACE+ with iOS and Android, and it can even glow in different colors for certain notices.
I personally think that Smartwatches to give us notifications might be overkill, as only a light is needed to tell us we have a message.
Well, this EMBRACE+ is a Kickstarter project, so I have no idea if we will see it in major retail outlets. I don’t see why not.
