Most current smart watches use a combination of a touch screen and physical buttons. Unfortunately, a small touch screen's usability is limited when it can be easily occluded, such as by a finger. In this paper, we look at extending the interactive surface for a smart watch to the back of the hand. Our approach reduces screen occlusion by enabling off-device gestural interaction. We define a range of supported bimanual gestures and present a prototype device.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||ACM||Copyright (published version):||2014 the Authors||Keywords:||Bimanual gestures; Mobile devices; Around device interaction; Surface appropriation; Haptic feedback; Display occlusion||DOI:||10.1145/2559206.2581315||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||CHI EA '14 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, 26 April - 1 May 2014, Toronto Canada|
