I'll Pass on the Vibrating Finger Bling, Thanks
Reading a review of Ringly on Tech Insider, the ring the reviewer received was described as bulky, with one coworker telling her it looked like "a toy that you might find in a gumball machine for 50 cents." Another article from TechCrunch explained how, unlike the AppleWatch or Pebble, Ringly only notifies you — it doesn't let you take action.
I understand that the team from Ringly is trying to stake its claim on the wearable-as-classy-jewelry market. But it failed on the classy jewelry side, and to be honest, it has me wondering if they really asked themselves the most important question: "Why?" Why are we doing this?
A bulky, vibrating, lighting-up piece of jewelry that is possibly more distracting than having your phone out? Is this a piece of wearable technology that is really necessary?
You tell me. Leave me a comment below!
