Stop Checking Your Texts, Twitter And Instagram 24/7--This Ring Will Do It For You

I’ll be the first one to admit it. I am completely hooked to my iPhone. That thing is like my child. One time I lost it, and I felt like the world was ending (which it was). But, I will also admit that I think we all need to disconnect sometimes. I am constantly the girl on girl’s nights out that’s saying “Look at us we’re all on our phones,” or “Can we put our phones down for five minutes and actually hang out?” Come on girls, if theres a group of five of you standing around a crowded bar on your phones, chances of guys approaching you are at about 0%, because guys aren’t normally as phone obsessed as girls. They don’t get it. So when they see you on your phone, they think you’re texting your boyfriend, and you definitely don’t want guys to think that do you, single girls? Nope. Didn’t think so. But, what if there was a solution so you could stay connected without actually staring at your phone? Well, now there is.

Ringly, a new wearable tech company, is releasing a ring that will vibrate and flash a tiny light to notify its wearer of an incoming call, text, calendar appointment, or notification. Using the ring’s iPhone or Android app, you can program the ring to alert you only when certain people contact you or you receive a notification on specified apps. Waiting for the Tinder match of a lifetime? The ring can let you know when destiny happens. Are you a worried mother? Program your ring to only alert you when your kids or their schools call. Your ring will alert you without disturbing the people around you, and you won’t look rude for constantly staring at your phone. Seems like a pretty cool solution to me.

What’s even cooler about it, is that the ring is something you’ll want to wear it. Each Ringly is crafted from 18-karat gold with four stone choices, black onyx, pink sapphire, rainbow moonstone, and emerald. It’s just like something you would see at the jewelry counter in your favorite department store. Nobody would ever guess that the ring is “smart” just by looking at it. And at $145-180, it’s not a crazy stretch if it’s going to free you from your phone addiction. Ringly is not going to be available until this fall, but you can pre-order it now so that you can be the first to show off your new bling. Early supporters get 25% off.

This new concept in wearable technology is a breakthrough, because unlike many other gadgets, people will actually want to wear this one. And since the easiest way to disguise wearable technology is through jewelry, like the Nike FuelBand, it is only a matter of time before other companies catch on to this trend. Ringly is already set to expand into watches and bracelets, and in the future it will have more capabilities like opening your car door and paying for things by linking to your credit card. Stay tuned for Ringly’s fall launch, or pre-order it now!
