Rayo: a bicycle tail-light designed for the modern cyclist

There is an increasing number of wearables that make it easy to call for help. Although we’ve had panic buttons for a while, its only recently they’ve become smaller, wearable and more discreet.

Essential reading: Wearables that keep you safe

Talsam is gift-worthy smart jewelry that provides intimacy, connection and peace of mind. It comes from a New York-based startup which spent as much time on design as it did on finalising the internal smarts.

You can wear Talsam as a bracelet or necklace. The team handpicked semi-precious stones as the main accent of the charm and adorned each piece with six Swarovski crystals to add elegance to the overall look. With its unisex design and a variety of styles and accessories, the gizmo is suitable for both men and women.

In addition to looking great, you can use Talsam to let a loved one know you’re thinking about them and exchange private messages. The jewellery comes with a feature packed smartphone app which allows you and your loved on to send messages, animated emojis and more. The wearable provides human connection but without the noise and will light up when a notification comes through.

Perhaps most useful of all is the SOS feature. In an emergency, all you need to do is press a button and a distress message with your location will be sent to your loved one.

Talsam is about making users feel cared for all the time and that’s what makes it different from other safety devices out there. This smart jewellery is a complete ecosystem for staying connected to loved ones.
