Hand crafted in Italy using only the finest materials, ProdigIO consists of a collection of devices for women. Each piece is unique and custom fitted. No cheap materials here, so think precious metals such as gold, silver and ruthenium. This is tech you can wear proudly for any occasion.
In terms of fitness tracking, users will get the basics which includes tracking steps and calories. All of this is synced via Bluetooth to the accompanying iOS or Android smartphone app, where you can view your activity by day, week or month. This also syncs with Apple Health and Google Fit.
The emergency features sound a bit more useful. If in danger, you can use ProdigIO to send an SOS alert with your location to emergency contacts. This is activated by pressing the built-in safety button. The bracelet can also activate the microphone, call contacts or opening default APPs. The app allows you to customise all this and choose up to 3 first responder contacts.
Finally, ProdigIO also keeps you in touch. There is an incoming view filter for calls, SMS, email, social networks and more. Each notification can be customised by associating the contact with a vibration or LED mode (customizable by color and duration). As soon as a notification comes through you’ll know who its from, while the filters allow you to detox from unwanted calls.
Designed by Florence-based Roberto Ferlito, the bracelets start just under $200. While this may seem a bit pricey, you need to take into account the premium materials that are used in crafting them. The bracelets come in three distinct designs and two sizes.
