We have been trying to connect everyday objects for a while. This particularly concerns the accessories that we wear. There are already watches connected with for example the Samsung Galaxy Gear , bracelets connected with the Jawbone Up , glasses connected with the Google Glass. Today I present to you the connected ring!
This ring called the Smarty Ring connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone in order to be able to display the various notifications that you may receive. When I say display it is not quite exact, we suspect that on a ring the size of a ring we will not be able to put a lot of content so the ring just tells you if you have notifications or not.
The ring supports notifications of incoming and outgoing calls, SMS, email, Facebook, Twitter, Hangout and Skype. It has three buttons with which you can accept or reject an incoming call, initiate a call, trigger the camera or control the music . It can also display the time and warn you if you are away from your phone. The configuration of the smarty ring is done through an application.
A 24h autonomy is announced and it is compatible Android and iOS. The announced price is $ 175 (or € 130 ) and the release date is scheduled for April 2014.
