Flex Watch: an interaction technique that uses continuous movements of fingers for one-handed operation on smartwatches When observing the collective range-of-motions of the wrist along each of its axes of movement, the hand can be viewed as a natural joystick. There is a smartwatch which is available in the market with proximity sensors but, disadvantage of that smartwatch is, we can’t use proximity sensors in high temperatures. To validate the use of Flex Watch in different application scenarios, we implemented a Hand Glove with smartwatch having flex sensors in it. The sensors detect the wrists joystick-like motion by sensing the degree of exion/extension and ulnar/radial deviation of the wrist motion as well as motion of fingers. Smartwatches which are available in the market that we have to interact with both hands, this paper introducing the new input style that is the Fingers as a joystick by which we can interact with that smartwatches using one hand.
