In this modern-day, technology is being integrated into almost every sector. Along with this, the pandemic has made technology an absolute necessity in order to promote safety and less human interaction. Automobiles are being enhanced, entertainment industries are upgraded, and even the fashion and jewelry industry is experimenting with technology. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the best smart jewelry to keep an eye out for 2021, as featured on Business Insider.
Bellabeat’s Leaf Urban
The coolest part about this specific piece is the fact that it can be worn as a necklace, clip, bracelet, or brooch. It is not a heart monitor, but it does track your stress level, mindfulness, activity, and sleep. There are no screens or buttons, nor are there notifications, and the battery life has a span of about six months, so you just replace the batteries and never have to charge it. For those who have values in sustainability, the piece is made with eco-friendly materials. The design is super versatile, so it can be paired with pretty much anything you are wearing. The different features of this piece include automatic tracking of how many calories you have burned, how many minutes you are active, the duration and quality of your sleep, and the distance you have traveled.
Oura Smart Ring
For those who are more interested in smaller pieces of jewelry, this ring has a bunch of cool features all tied up in a tiny package. This ring has sensors that monitor body temperature, the details of your sleep and can even track your menstrual cycle, and it all syncs up to an app you can download on your mobile phone. It has no notifications, a battery life of seven days, and an extremely elegant and simplistic design. The ring is also waterproof for up to 100 meters, so no need to worry about taking it off at the pool, beach, or shower. The only aspect of this ring that may be considered unfavorable is the fact that it is relatively expensive. You can also wear the ring during hand sanitizer usage, so it is very Covid friendly.
Fossil Carlie Smartwatch
If you do prefer notifications, this hybrid watch is perfect for you. It does not have a heart monitor, but it does track your activity, sleep, and when someone from your phone contacts you. The watch comes in rose gold, black, and silver, and you can also switch out the band for more comfortable straps. Some of the coolest features are that you can use the side buttons to control your music, take a selfie, and call your phone when you can’t find it. It has a replaceable battery life of up to 6 months, and you never have to worry about charging your device.
