'Ringly' Smart Ring Relays iPhone Notifications Over Bluetooth

Ringly, a new iPhone-connected smart ring designed for women, uses Bluetooth LE to connect to a phone, lighting up and buzzing to alert users of calls, messages, emails, and other app notifications.

Billed as the first connected ring, Ringly aims to allow users to continue to receive notifications even while a phone is put away in a bag or otherwise unavailable. The ring, which lasts for up to three days on a single charge, connects to an accompanying iPhone app to deliver notifications.

Ringly creates jewelry and accessories that connect to your phone and notify you about the things that matter most. Put your phone away and enjoy the moment.
Ringly is designed to light up or vibrate when a notification is received, and it is entirely customizable by the end user. It features four vibration patterns and five colors that can be assigned to different notifications. Incoming Twitter notifications might buzz in a certain way, for example, while a phone call might light up. The ring is also able to sync with reminders, letting users know when a meeting or appointment is coming up.


Ringly is available in three sizes (6,7, and 8) with four different designs that feature precious and semi-precious stones in 18K matte gold settings. Three of the rings can be pre-ordered for $145, while a fourth ring sells for $180. The rings will retail for considerably more, starting at $195. The first 1,000 rings sold are also advertised as having a real diamond in the side.

Are you kidding?! This is a great idea. This would solve the problem of the wife never answering calls or texts ("it was in my bag"). It would also solve the "you never buy me jewelry" problem if, alas, it didn't look like it came out of a box of crackerjacks.
(I'm probably showing my age by mentioning mood rings and rings in crackerjacks)

Bonus feature if you install their iOS app is that Ringly will function as a mood ring!

Not only that, but the app will include a color chart to tell you what mood you're feeling based on the current color of the ring.

Act now and they'll throw in a FREE set of ginsu steak knives!

I think it is a good idea, but the ring itself looks like something that kids get out of a quarter machine...

Also I was expecting it to be like a mood ring and change the color of the crystal rather than a side LED.
