Intel Fashion Wearable Is a Smart Designer Statement
With the world running on smartphones and wearables, these now have become a fashion statement. And Intel’s new wearable is no different. The new Intel fashion wearable is a perfect smart gear for the fashion savvy tech lovers.
Designed in collaboration with Opening Ceremony, the Intel fashion wearable looks similar to chunky cuffs and has been designed at par with the latest trend.
Designer wearables are not new to the world. Many small companies have come up with health trackers or fitness gears and even weather trackers in the form of wearable. There was even a recent article on smartphone chargers that looks like cuffs and are portable charging devices. Hence a wearable from the house of Intel comes as no surprise.
The Intel fashion wearable has been named “My Intelligent Communication Accessory” or MICA in abridged. Being a designer bracelet, it is fitted with all high-end fashion elements. The bracelet itself is plated with 14 karat gold. Semi precious stones have been placed to give it a jeweled look and the entire bracelet is covered with black or white snakeskin.
The user interface is an arched 1.6 inch display covered with sapphire crystal. It is touch capacitive and can be connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The Intel fashion wearable displays notifications and text messages that you receive on your smartphone.
The wearable has been designed such that the display screen falls on the inside of the wrist. This makes the screen discreet and the ornate stones are the one that are visible. The Intel wearable however does not support voice call.
The device is still in the beta testing stage. Intel is trying to incorporate third party apps to make the device more user-friendly. Intel expects to stuff its wearable with more features before it is launched for the general public.
The Intel fashion wearable is a data only device. Hence users cannot make or receive voice calls from it. The fashion wearable comes with a wireless bowl charger. Users will also be able to charge with a micro USB charger.
Intel fashion wearable has been designed keeping the female population in mind. Hence this Intel fashion wearable will not excite men. Also the device comes in one single size. Hence if you have your wrist on the broader side, using the wearable comfortably might be a problem.
MICA has been packed with style and glamour. The snakeskin, precious stones and the designer tag makes the wearable come at quite a hefty sum of $1000. It will be available in selected outlets in New York this Christmas.
