At first glance, the Ringly appears to be an ordinary piece of jewelry. Slip it on your finger, and it looks and feels like a typical fashion ring. That all changes, however, when your iPhone receives a notification, as the ring begins to vibrate and light up.

Using the low energy Bluetooth standard, Ringly connects to your phone and sends you customized notifications through vibration and light. It’s discreet enough for a meeting, but conspicuous enough that you’ll never miss an important call or message…

Ringly’s Fall ring collection is crafted with 18K matte gold 3 micron plating using precious and semi-precious stones, and each ring comes in three sizes: 6, 7, or 8. They can receive notifications from a number of apps, and supports both iOS and Android.

Users can choose between four vibration patterns and five colors, which can each be assigned to different notifications. The ring can also sync up with reminder applications, and produce a customized alert when a scheduled appointment is coming up.

The ring is also water resistant, meaning you can wash your hands, but probably shouldn’t take it swimming. And as far as battery life it should last 2+ days, depending on usage. When it does need power, just set it back in its box, which doubles as a charger.

If you’re interested, the Ringly is available for pre-order right now, and starts shipping in the fall. All of the rings cost $145, except for the one with an Emerald in it ($180). Pre-ordered units will be cheaper than retail, and the first 1,000 will have a real diamond.

  • Let’s get this out of the way… I’m not wearing one of these things, but it is nonetheless pretty cool. I’d look into the male version though

      Wouldn’t it get annoying if you had multiple notifications?

  • Merman123

    It looks like it weighs 4 pounds.

  • Yujin

    No man rings?

  • Matt KCCO

    I would be interested in a Male version if it look OK. Like a male wedding band essentially that’s not overdone.

  • Framboogle

    This already a fail lol, women aren’t even into these type of things.

    • Kristen

      Broad generalization! I’m a female and I think this is really cool! I’d want a lower price tag though.

      • Eni

        you are a very beautyful female

      • Framboogle

        Not to be sexist or anything, but most females don’t really know much about technology, so this wouldn’t really appeal to them. Then again, this is from my personal experience, so what I say May not reflect on everyone.

  • Der Faust

    need to make a pendant or something….

    • Der Faust

      something you could attach to clothing, hang around your neck, or maybe put it on a wristband of sorts?

  • Dao Sasone

    Fancy vibrators for the females.

    Really? Why re people so greedy to get money off people for something that doesn’t make sense at all even when they use their senses.?! 🙁 Sorry if my words re hash or offensive but this is totally a waste of resources, time & money and pls stop ripping people off. Go build something really wonderful and not this. Our generation?.. Ha!
