Immersion, Realtime Adding Haptics to Pacewear Smart Wearables

Smart wearables just keep on getting smarter. And the newest partnership forged in the space will only accelerate this trend.

Immersion Corp., a leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, announced this week that it has signed a license agreement with Shenzhen-based Realtime Technology Co., Ltd to embed Immersion’s TouchSense Premium solution in Realtime’s Pacewear smart wearable products.

Realtime can now dramatically enhance its Pacewear wearables, such as smart watches, with tailored tactile effects using Immersion’s TouchSense Premium solution. It complements Immersion’s Intuitive Alerts Framework for wearables, turning notifications into intuitive tactile messages to make them more meaningful. For example, notification of a calendar appointment will feel different than an incoming text message on one’s smart watch.

“Touch is the latest design language of wearable devices, and I am confident that Pacewear can offer an enhanced user experience with our TouchSense technology,” said Shuo Liu, General Manager of Immersion China. “Working together, we can bring even more possibilities to smart wearable products through the power of touch.”
