Combining fashion and personal safety, Cuff smart jewelry could be the next big thing in wearable tech. In addition to working as an activity tracker and alerting the wearer to incoming calls and texts, Cuff bracelets, pendants, and key chains also serve as a personal safety system that can notify loved ones in case of an emergency.
An electronic module inside the jewelry can send an emergency alert message to a few select people or to an entire social media network. If trouble arises, the Cuff can transmit location information and a live audio feed. Emergency messages continue to be sent out until someone responds.
The line of smart jewelry, which is scheduled for release for iPhone and Android users in March 2015, provides women with plenty of options, including leather bracelets and long pendant necklaces. Thanks to these stylish pieces that women will actually want to wear, Cuff is taking wearable tech into fashionable territory. Plus, the interchangeable module can be switched back and forth among a variety of pieces of Cuff jewelry.
The modules can do their job for up to seven days without recharging. When it is time to refuel, the modules can be charged in a special Cuff-brand jewelry box.
Cuff is currently accepting pre-orders on their website. The interchangeable module costs $29, and the accompanying app is currently free. Bracelets start at $29, and the mirrored jewelry box that doubles as a charger is listed at $49. The Cuff requires Bluetooth and is compatible with iOS 7 and higher and Android 4.3 and up.
