The issue addressed
Wouldn’t it be great if you could receive the messages you want, when you wa
nt them,freeing up your hands and in situations when you cannot use your phone? Like everyoneelse, we carry our phones in our front pocket. One of the biggest pains is getting into thecar and forgetting to put the phone in the center console. Of course at some point duringthe drive we get a text and have to contort to get the phone out of our pocket.
With LinkMe, you can now view incoming texts or social media right on youwrist.
When you’re not receiving a message, LinkMe defaults to the time of day.
 LinkMe is compatible with many additional applications, including:
Sports stadiums
Charitable causes
How does it work?
With LinkMe, you can send a message with your smartphone via an easy to use app thatwill in turn be displayed on LinkMe.
It’s that simple – 
in meetings, in class or when youhave your hands full,
you’ll be able to receive the messages that matter to you most.
