Whether you are waiting for an important client call, your child or your loved one, the Ringly Smart Ring will help you stay in touch. You will need to have your smartphone nearby so this is not a standalone Smart Ring.
Heading into a concert, a night at the theatre or a wedding? Don’t be that person whose phone rings and scramble through your bag to find it. When your Ringly ring discretely vibrates, no one is going to give you a dirty look and a frustrated sigh. However, you may get some raised eyebrows from those who are envious and want a Ringly themselves!
Assuming you are into slightly chunkier jewellery, Ringly Smart Rings look stylish. As with all Smart Rings, there is no real way around the size of the gemstones, given the technology that sits beneath the stone. The ring doesn’t give any indication that is it tracking steps, so that little secret will be just for you! The step tracker is great for those who want detailed analysis of their activity such as they would get with a fitbit or pedometer. If you forget your phone when you head out for a walk, don’t worry, the steps will sync when you get back in the range of your phone. The ring can store up to 4 days of steps without syncing!
If you want the Ringly to go with your whole wardrobe then perhaps choose one of the more neutral gemstone colours like Moonstone or Rainbow Moonstone.
Your Ringly Smart Ring will come with a Charging/Ring Box and also a micro USB Cable. Given the smart ring box doubles as a charging box you might want to think about buying an extra box for home or work. This carries a small additional charge so if you think you can be disciplined enough to charge it up over night then you should be able to make do with the one charging box which comes with your Ringly Smart Ring.
Ringly recommend you use the micro USB cable regularly to ensure the box has charge. The charging box will fully charge your Ringly in approximately 4 hours so it is probably best to pop it in the charging box at night before you head to bed – it will then be ready to pop back on in the morning.
