Ringly

I love the design of the ringly. It connects to your phone and sends you customised notifications (you choose what you are notified of via an app) through vibration and light so you can put your phone away but never miss a call.

 

Sun exposure bracelet

A clever and stylish bracelet that holds a secret function; it measures your sun exposure through the day, notifying you via your phone when you need to reapply sunscreen. It’s customised through an app so you can programme in your skin type to ensure you get the protection you need.
