The Smarty Ring connects to your smartphone via low consumption Bluetooth 4.0 and a free app (available for iOS and Android) which allows you to set up it’s behavior: set up incoming and outgoing call notifications, text and email alerts, Facebook, Twitter, Google Hangouts and Skype real time updates, accept and reject calls, trigger camera, control phone volume and phone tracking when lost (works for up to 30ft – 10 meters).
The ring comes with a 22mAh rechargeable battery (enough for 24 hours of continuous usage) and a wirelesses induction charging pad.
