SkinTrack: New Technology Turns Your Arm Into A TouchPad For Your Smartwatch

Smartwatches have slowly become a must-have wearable for many techies. However, the tiny screens on these gadgets can be frustrating to use for some, with operations even as basic as swiping through notifications proving difficult to do.
