My Current Obsession: Ringly

Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored by Ringly. I paid for this with my own money and all opinions are my own. I just want the rest of you to drink the kool-aid.


I don't remember where I first heard about Ringly, but I'm glad that I did. As a new mom, especially with having Teacup Human in daycare, I am constantly checking my phone. Is she sick? Do they need me to come pick her up and I missed their call? Was that my phone that vibrated or was is the my coworker's phone? You get the idea.
Enter Ringly. This piece of smart technology is a Heaven sent. Accordingly to Ringly this technology is "smart jewelry that keeps you active, mindful, and in the moment." Not only does it come in a variety of styles, but it's cute! Don't get me wrong, FitBit has come a long way in cute technology wear, but it's still steps behind Ringly.
Ringly comes in three forms: Ringly Luxe Smart Bracelet (six styles), Ringly Luxe Smart Ring (six styles), and Ringly Go (two styles).
Originally I had wanted a ring, and part of  me still does, but unfortunately the only styles that were available in the size I wanted were gold. Nothing against gold jewelry, but I'm not a fan. So I waited and waited for the silver rings to come back in stock in my size.
This did not happen. However, in the mist of my waiting they released their Ringly Go bracelets. Ringly Go comes in two colors: Black/Black and White/Blush.
Beautiful. Simple.
I snatched up the White/Blush option and I love it. It arrived quickly, about two days, and I was able setup my alerts while the bracelet charged.
The app, available for both iOS and Android, is where you set everything up. I only have mine setup for texts and phone calls, but they support a crazy amount of apps. There are four different vibrations and five color options (six if you count no color), so the possibilities are almost endless.
I set mine up so a text buzzes twice and a phone call buzzes four times, but neither flash a color. One of my favorite features is the ability to set up certain contacts to flash an additional color. My husband flashes green, my family blue, daycare purple, and some VIP friends red. This is especially helpful when I'm in a meeting, out to lunch, talking with friends, etc.
I was in a meeting the other day and my phone buzzed twice, but there was no color so I just left my phone in my pocket. No worries. Turns out it was a Redbox code and how professional would I have looked peaking at my phone for a free DVD code? (No offense, Redbox!) Another day I was out to lunch with coworker and my phone buzzed four times and flashed purple. Teacup Human was in need, so I pulled my phone from my pursue and answered.

Ringly also comes with two additional features: Stay Active and Stay Mindful. Stay Active tracks your steps, the distance you have traveled, as well as calories burned. That last bit of information is enhanced if you enter your height and weight under settings. If you have an iPhone you can also connect it to your Health app for more accurate information.
Stay Mindful is a new feature that walks you through guided meditation and breathing exercise. I myself have used the "Mid-Day Recess" quite a bit. These meditations are great ways to just distress in the middle of the workday and remind yourself to just breath.
The battery only lasts about two days, maybe less if you have more notifications, which is considerably less than other pieces of wearable technology but doesn't bother me in the slightest. I charge my phone every night so I just plug my Ringly in at the same time.

I'm not sure what the range is, maybe 30-ish feet, but you can setup an "Out of Range Alert" so if you move too far from your phone, it will buzz seven times. There is also a "Low Battery Alert" and "Sleep Mode" (if your Ringly isn't moving, it goes into sleep mode to conserve battery).
Overall, I'm incredibly pleased with Ringly. They have designed cute wearable tech and if you're the kind of person who loves to accessorize, you can link multiple devices with your app. Maybe you're feeling the ring one day, but the bracelet the next.
