Ringly launches phone-connected smartrings
A new company, <a href="https://ringly.com/">Ringly</a>, has announced a series of self-named smartrings aimed at iPhone and Android device owners. Similarly to smartwatches, the rings notify wearers about incoming phone calls, texts, and notifications, as well as whether a person is about to leave their phone behind. The main difference is that since the rings lack displays, users are alerted by customizable light and vibration patterns. <br /><br />The rings last for three days on a charge, and are made of 18 karat gold topped with semi-precious stones. Black onyx, emerald, pink sapphire, and rainbow moonstone versions are available, in sizes 6, 7, and 8. To set up alerts a person has to download a special app.<br />
<br />
A special pre-order campaign beginning today is offering the rings for $145 each. The first 1,000 rings sold will include a real diamond in their sides.<br />

Somehow, these don't ring out "smart" ;)
