Made in Italy, ProdigIO, a smart bracelet collection, is merging fashion and technology in a beautiful way. The trio of intelligent bracelets, launched by Wearable Italia, merges design and technology in a way that made us stop and look.
Please Don’t Call Smart Jewelry but Jewellery Smart
Following a conversation with Alessandra Lombardi, she convinced us to become intimate with the collection. Love at first sight, we found the pieces to be an interesting mix of technology meets Italian style. Designed by Roberto Ferlito, the three bracelets, Fluid, Plus and Contrarié, have successfully combined artisan production with the latest cutting edge technology. Traditional yet modern, it is easy to appreciate how Ferlito’s vision fits in perfectly with the spirit of what consumers expect of a smart jewellery. The soul of the bracelet was produced by master goldsmiths who boast over thirty years of experience. Working on the ProdigIO jewels, they managed to perfect a process that made sure that every detail in each bracelet was different.
When it comes to the technology, ProdigIO bracelets contain patented technology that allows them to communicate via Bluetooth with a dedicated app, which operates on iOS, Android and Windows. Features include a calorie counter, workout recording and monitoring, pedometer, an alarm and incoming messages like calls, SMS, email, social networks. With batteries that can last up to 10-15 days without recharging, we love how the ProdigIO bracelets have been designed with a safety button to use in case of danger. Once pushed, the button will send an emergency SMS with your geolocation to all the contacts loaded on the app. Making it in many ways a woman’s silent ally
Precious, elegant and rich in stylish designs, ProdigIO jewels will be available by the end of the year (2017).
