Wearable technology has become more fashionable with more technology features day by day. One of the newest to come to market is the high fashion Blinq ring which provides the same functionality you get from a smartwatch. Blinq ring just launched their Kickstarter Campaign with a goal of $25,000 with $27,051 already pledged and 25days to go. Their campaign is All or nothing meaning it will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sun, November 5 2017 1:23 PM CST.
What is the Blinq ring and what are it’s features?
The Blinq ring is crafted from rose gold, sterling silver and hand cut gemstones that conceals technology hardware with many functions. The Blinq ring allows wearers to receive app notifications, V.I.P. contact alerts, emergency S.O.S. alerts and a fitness tracker.
