Embrace+ Bracelet: Like a Smartwatch without the Watch Part

by Shane McGlaun

Maybe I’m an old-fashioned geek, but I’m never really understood the interest in a bracelet or a watch that can notify you of what’s going on your smartphone. I mean, all you have to do when it beeps or vibrates his pull it out of your pocket to see what’s going on. It seems like that would be much easier than trying to remember what notification a specific color on a bracelet goes with.


If you like technology that keeps you from the first-world problem of having to pull your phone out of your pocket, a new product has landed on Kickstarter called the Embrace+. The device is a bracelet that has RGB LED lighting inside, which makes the bracelet glow. The color of the bracelet can be customized to notify you of just about anything your iPhone or Android device can do. Simply use the companion app to attach notification colors to events on your smartphone.


For instance, if you want bracelet to turn blue when a new Facebook post is made, it will do it. If you want the device to turn red when someone retweets your posts, you can do that too. You can even set the bracelet to show you a color when the battery on your smartphone is low, or you have an upcoming appointment.

If you want one of the Embrace+ bracelets, you’ll need to pledge $39(USD) or more and can expect delivery in June – assuming the project hits its rather lofty $220,000 funding goal by March 23, 2013.
