Be smart, be in style…are these a contradiction? Of course not! Smart jewelry is making waves in the high end style world and trickling down to everyone else. No one wants to be without their smart phone and everyone wants to make ultimate style statements.
We, at A Touch of Dazzle, have brought together a handful of companies and products that are making a huge impact in the new jewelry trend called:
Wisewear speaks to the high end, ultimate fashion statement women. In their own words:
“We create innovative smart accessories that empower you to live the healthy, balanced lifestyle you deserve. Technology is a beautiful thing, and wearing it should be too. We create our products with the belief that the beauty of our technology can only be concealed inside beautiful accessories. The end result? A seamless blend of fashion and function, so you’ll never have to sacrifice one for the other.”
They have celebrated their launch of their latest styles in collaboration with Iris Apfel, an icon the the fashion and interior design industry. Apfel spent decades curating her eccentric wardrobe of clothing and accessories from around the globe.
Activity tracking, Distress messaging and mobile notification – never be without these and of course never be seen grasping that phone like a lifeline.
Mira is a startup specializing in attractive wearable technology for women in sync with the so-called “modern-minimalist trend”.
Their “Opal” uses Bluetooth 4.0 to pair with a companion app which provides a detailed review of your activities as well as wellness tips and recommendations on how to achieve a healthier lifestyle. The Mira app is available for iOS and Android. The Opal also features a smart LED display so you can simply press to view your daily progress or check what time it is.
In their own words:
“We believe stylish products can have a big impact, enabling a change in behavior for a more active life. Mira makes it easy for women to uncover the hidden insights of their activity with beautifully designed smart jewelry that fits their style.”
Ringly creates smart jewelry and accessories that keep you effortlessly connected to the things that matter most. Their core belief is that technology can be more discreetly integrated into our lives.
Ringly just looks good. It’s a ring that I’d buy for myself, even if it wasn’t “smart.” Ringly doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles. It doesn’t have buttons or a screen. It’s simple, and so is the app that works with it.
In the wearable tech space – and in tech generally – so much focus is put on the *amount* of features in a gadget, instead of its quality or design. That a device can’t do something often overshadows how easy it is to set up or how seamlessly it fits into daily life.
Society is approaching a tipping point. We are realizing that more connections online doesn't equate to more human connection.
Gemio is high-tech connected friendship bracelet designed mainly for teenage girls aged 13 – 18. It has 20 embedded RGB LED’s which offer millions of color combinations. There is also a vibration motor for silent alerts and Bluetooth connectivity for communication to smart devices and other Gemio bracelets.
The Gemio smart bracelet is a social little wearable. It alerts users when friends are within 100 feet with animated patterns and vibrations. The friend alerts can be customized to display different patterns and colors depending on who is close by. Furthermore, if a group of friends are all wearing Gemio, the bracelets can sync and play matching patterns.
Gemio also features gesture recognition so teenagers can control the light shows by assigning a range of actions such as high-fives, waving, handshakes or other movements. In situations where discretion is advised, the light shows can be turned off and the bracelet will communicate with silent vibrations only. Full review here.
The MyGemio app acts as a fun social platform where teens can express their personal designs. Messages can be sent to friends and colors and patterns can be customized to represent secret meanings.
Another great feature involves an onboard color sensor that allows you to point the bracelet at the clothes you’re wearing, it then changes color to match your outfit.
Altrius created a line of beautiful wearable technology that promotes digital balance by helping you prioritize what matters. A beautiful and subtle line of jewelry allowing you the freedom to have subtle reminders of all the things we need to keep track of in life.
Customize which people, calls, messages and alerts deserve your attention. Your jewellery filters your notifications based on 'Profiles' and 'Secret Words' via their iOS app.
Altruis enables you to better understand your digital habits and improve your relationship with your smartphone.
Jewelry may have once been nothing more than a bit of superficial frosting on the metaphorical cake, but in this day and age, if your bracelet, necklace, or ring doesn’t serve some sort of high-tech dual purpose, you’re accessorizing all wrong. Over the course of the last year, we’ve seen some pretty impressive meetings of the high fashion and the high tech worlds, and the results are nothing short of spectacular. Smart jewelry is on the rise.
