Simple, interactive, elegant and most of all smart, this innovative Bluetooth wearable device should be definitely considered, made in Brooklyn, the Ringly is a smart ring that warns you if you have messages, alerts or notifications on your smartphone, thanks to bluetooth technology.
The products mission are highlighted immediately on the home page of the producersÂ official website. TheÂ Ringly is a jewel of technology and design, able to communicate with your smartphone, with style and a lot if attention to its functionality.
“IT IS NOT A RING, IS A RINGLY. Ringly creates jewellery and accessories that connect to yourÂ phone and notify the things that matter most. Put away your phone and enjoy the moment.”
The project was launched in June 2014 by Christina Mercando, product designer, CEO and creator of Ringly, with the goal of liberating users of constantly checking your smartphone but at the same time, without having to give up on being able to receive messages or notifications.
“I kept getting lost calls and messages from my friends and my family because my phone was in the bag, and I hated having to leave it on the table while being out with friends” said Christina Mercando, reported in an interview from Businessinsider UK.
The motivation behind the creation of a truly wearable device, worn on the hand, exclusively for the receiving notifications via Bluetooth on your smartphone. On the side of the ring we find a small LED that lights up in five different colours, so as to make it possible to identify immediately whether it is worth checking your phone at that time. With the dedicated app, available on iOS and Android platforms, you can select the type of notification you want to receive on the ring, like new tweets, text messages or even an alarm to wake you up. Finally you can assign a colour and a type of vibration for each type of notification, cool…..
