What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Secret Decoder Ring 2.0

Happens to me all the time. I’m on the street, in a club, or somewhere else noisy, my phone is in my bag, and I miss a call. Not anymore, I won’t!

Yesterday, the world was introduced to Ringly, the first iPhone/Android-connected smart ring. That’s right, I said smart ring. We’ve all seen wearable computer devices, but the watches are clunky and masculine, and the glasses, while awesome, are phenomenally expensive and have been known to inspire ridicule and even violence. Ringly, on the (literal) other hand, is a discrete, beautiful women’s accessory that lets you know when your phone wants your attention, while not calling unwanted attention to itself.

“The Ringly app will support iOS and Android devices at launch and pair with the Ringly hardware over Bluetooth LE. Through the app, you can customize the light and vibration patterns for different kinds of notifications. The ring can notify you when you are receiving a text, phone call, calendar alert, email, or third-party notification.” 9to5Mac.com

Also, if you accidentally move out of range of your phone, the ring tells you. No more losing your phone! The water-resistant Ringly comes with a ring box/charging station, and holds a charge for 2+ days.

Available for pre-order, they begin shipping in Fall of 2014. Early supporters get 25% off, so the price tag drops from a not terrible $195 to a downright reasonable $145. I’m in!

Here’s Ringly:

And, in case rings aren’t your thing, here’s the Memi bracelet.  Same idea, different company, wrist instead of finger.

  1. I would buy and wear the bracelet. I don’t usually wear rings on my stubby fingers. But it looks like the bracelet isn’t android compatible yet. But honestly, since my kids are grown, I’m usually OK not being available the minute someone calls me.

  2. I think it is okay to miss a few calls.
