Smart Jewelry that Combines Technology and Fashion July 29, 2020 – Posted in: Blog

Smartwatches and fitness trackers have become incredibly popular over the last few years, but these aren’t the only wearable gadgets available.  Smart jewelry comes in many forms nowadays and in this guide, we will be looking at the best products that this space has to offer.

 Smart jewelry is blurring the lines between form and function, allowing you to make use of the features found on fitness trackers without worrying about how well the device will pair up with smarter attire.

Wearable tech is mostly about the wrist, but there are products that dream of being other places, too.  Talk of jewelry that doubles as connected tech has been floating around for a while, but there’s one prominent fitness tracker that already has a set of jewelry options.

 There’s an inevitable conversation about wearable technology that goes like this: all things you wear on your body should emphasize style.  So should any gadget.

One of the coolest pieces of smart jewelry right now has to be the Motiv Ring.  This product has received a lot of hype from the tech community with high-quality construction and impressive feature-set.  When it comes to smart rings, this is one of the best.



The Motiv Ring has a fairly simple design much like a wedding band.  There are no patterns or precious stones embedded, instead, it relies on minimalistic sophistication to stand out. This gives the ring a very modern appearance that works well with any attire.

The Motiv ring gives the two-tone effect it gives the device is actually quite pleasing to look at.  The plastic inner layer also adds a degree of comfort to the ring which is an added bonus. The ring is also water-resistant up to 165 feet.  This makes it perfectly fine to use while showering or swimming, however, saltwater diving may still damage it.


Although the feature list for this device isn’t extensive, it is no less impressive, especially considering that this is a ring.  Its main features include activity tracking, heart rate monitoring, and sleep tracking, and there is also a companion app for both Android and iOS.

Arguably the best feature on this device is the sleep tracking.  Most sleep trackers are let down by the fact they are housed in uncomfortable form factors, such as watches or bracelets.  The Motiv ring, of course, doesn’t have this problem, meaning it is able to get a more accurate reading of how you actually sleep.

Another great thing about the Motiv rings sleep tracker is that it doesn’t start tracking until you are actually asleep.  It does this by monitoring your resting heart rate and once it has determined that you are sleeping it begins monitoring your movements for any restless behavior. You can then look over the data on the app, where it shows information for each night as well as giving you a weekly average.


The Motiv ring has a battery life of 3 days.  This is by no means mind-blowing but for a battery this small, it’s good enough.  To charge the ring, you need to use the supplied magnetic charger which plugs into a USB port.

It takes around 90 minutes to fully charge the device and this will need to be done when you first unbox it, as the ring is dead on arrival.  Sacrificing 90 minutes at a time for 3 days of battery life is a very worthwhile trade though, so we can’t complain here.

The pendant shown is a reference design that highlights CSR’s Bluetooth Smart solution, a tiny chip capable of connecting to your smartphone.  It’s possible to use an Android app to change the color or brightness of the LED in the pendant and match your mood or clothing. The platform also supports iOS 7’s Apple Notification Center Service.  By changing color, vibrating, or flashing, the pendant could alert iPhone owners about incoming calls, emails, or text messages. The chip is powered by a compact lithium-polymer battery.

A simple ring with NFC functionality built in.  There are two inlays, one each side of the ring with separate NFC tags in each one.  The idea is that you can program them to perform various functions or hold data.  The inner (private) tag could serve as a way to unlock your smartphone or even your front door, while you might use the outer (public) tag to share contact information or provide a website link.  There’s a free NFC Ring Control app that you can use to program your ring. Part of the attraction is that the ring does not require any power.

Looking to bridge the gap between fitness trackers and smart jewelry, we find the Shine from Misfit Wearables. At first glance, it looks like a locket, but it’s a cleverly designed activity tracker in grey, black, topaz, or champagne matte aluminum.  It has a unisex look and its accessories include a watch strap sport band , leather band to wear it on your wrist, or opt for a necklace or clasp to wear round your neck.  The face of the Shine contains 12 white LEDs that light up when you double tap it to show progress towards your daily goal, they can also give you an approximate time.

It auto-detects and tracks your activity including walking, running, cycling, and swimming (it’s waterproof up to 50 meters).  It also tracks your sleep, for a complete picture of your health. To sync it, place it on the screen of your smartphone.

It works with an iOS or Android app, but your smartphone will need Bluetooth 4.0 LE support for you to take full advantage of the features.

The flat circular CR2032 battery inside the Shine lasts for up to four months. It comes with a sports band and a clasp.


A smart jewelry maker, Bellabeat, made a good addition to the market with their beautiful Bellabeat Leaf Urban. This is a product that doesn’t compromise on style and delivers an effective health tracking system.

The Bellabeat Leaf Urban is a large pendant which is worn as a clip, bracelet or necklace.  It is made of an elegant wood composite that is formed into a stone-like frame.  It has a leaf-shaped clip attached which is made of stainless steel.  A bracelet strap made of genuine leather, a chain and a battery replacement tool also comes along in the box.

The Bellabeat Leaf Urban can wirelessly sync with the Bellabeat App which is available both on Google Play and Apple Store. The minimum requirement of this app is iPhone 4s or higher, or Android 4.3 or higher.

The device can hold the data from up to the last 14 days so you get enough room to transfer data to your phone.  However, sadly, you have to sync Leaf Urban with your phone manually, otherwise, the recorded data will get erased after the period.  The best part of it is that you do not have to charge it.  It comes with a removable coin cell battery that can keep the device charged for up to 6 months. You will be given a tool for removing the battery so you can easily buy and change it when it dies.

If you need a less obvious fitness tracker (more precisely, a piece of jewelry) that looks great but still does all the key jobs that you expect a fitness-tracking smartwatch to do then the Leaf Urban could be just the ticket.  It’s certainly aimed at the women’s market with features like Menstrual Cycle Tracking (Period Tracking), and pregnancy tracking. 

Keep your smart items looking eye-catching and fashion-friendly with a smart jewelry accessory and you will never be disappointed when you are out for a night on the town. Whether you’re on the hunt for something like the Leaf Urban to track things like your menstrual cycle, steps, and sleep, or prefer something more runway-worthy , AuGrav helps you to get the accessories designed  in Gold or Silver.

AuGrav (Au-Gold, Grav-To Etch, to Engrave) Strongly believes that any Jewel should be a natural extension of yourself.  It could be as simple as your Names, to your Fingerprints, your Voice Waves, or anything that describes your Persona.  To create a piece that will be worn by only 1 out of 7 billion people on earth, Get In Touch with us.  Our Jewelry experts have all ears to listen to your story and suggest creating a masterpiece.
