If you are looking for a subtle way to be kept updated with the notifications received by your smartphone, but find the new smartwatches currently on the market not to your taste. You might be interested in a new device called the MOTA SmartRing which follows on from the development of the MOTA Smartwatch.
The MOTA SmartRing has been specifically designed to provide features that are included on the current generation of smartwatches but provide a different way of viewing them.
The recently unveiled MOTA SmartRing supports both Android and iOS devices and allows users to see notifications for calls, texts, and social media with the use of subtle vibrations. The tiny touchscreen on the smarting allows you to scroll from screen to screen and currently supported applications such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Its creators explains a little more.
“The SmartRing displays notifications in text form, with users able scroll through words at the speed they wish. The SmartRing provides maximum discretion over notifications, letting the wearer enable and disable audible and tactile alerts.
The VIP feature let’s you control who gets your attention and who doesn’t. Start living again without the unwanted distractions. With the option of choosing midnight black or pearl white, the MOTA SmartRing always keeps you updated in style.”
The MOTA SmartRing and app will be unveiled at this months IFA 2014 event in Berlin and will be available to pre-order at a discounted membership price shortly afterwards. Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet. MOTA Co-Founder Kevin Faro explains :
“Notification of incoming calls, texts and app information has become the single most important function of a mobile phone,”-“But it’s also become a major thorn in the side of the mobile user. The types and sources of notifications are proliferating rapidly. Increasingly many are being presented as urgent. Users tell us they continually have to delve into different apps on their phones and are becoming swamped trying to keep up. The MOTA SmartRing gives wearers a super easy and very natural way to see who’s trying to reach them anytime, anywhere.”
