Pretty cool. At first I was thinking all it does is light up? Might not see that at some clubs. So it vibrates too. Seems to have a lot of customization too as you mentioned Elizabeth. Too bad I don't wear jewelry.

Elizabeth, that is probably what has been missing from a lot of wearables in the past.  They simply looked too technological.  When you are wearing technology you want to hide the fact.

I like how some of the new wearables are merging both design and fashion, but I'm not sure how I feel about always being alerted by a bracelet when someone is trying to reach me on my mobile. Sometimes it's nice to be out of touch. Then again, I imagine the customization options make this problem go away--and it's probably good for people with kids if they always need to be in touch with a caretaker, or for emergency situations. At any rate, it's definitely an interesting device.
