When you think of smart jewellery, the first thing to hit your mind are the various high-tech gadgets Q designs for James Bond. Although those pieces have been some farfetched idea of the future, today there is exceptional hype over this technological development.
Ever since the release of the Google Glass in 2012, there has been a surge in wearable technology and many brands have caught up with the idea, developing some of the most ingenious inventions seen today.
Millenials may argue that smart jewellery has been around for while, the infamous Casio calculator, but these devices have become more that just a chucky slab of plastic that can do much more than just solve your math problems.
Brands founded by women’s wear designers, MIT students etc. have created some beautiful designer jewellery with smarts that include fitness tracking, notifications, alerts and a lot more. These innovations are clearly just the beginning as the next generation of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings are only going to get better as they are developed to connect with one another.
Until mini computers concealed by diamonds are designed, have a look at four pieces of smart jewellery that everyone seems to be buzzing about.
