Technology is evolving at such a fast pace that few can actually keep up with it. Today, apparent pieces of jewelry can contain technological wonders. Of course, this is just the beginning of what’s going to befall us in the years to come.
A necklace can be an alarm, a bracelet can be a fitness tracker, and a ring can be a remote for your PC or your phone. This is the case of the sci-fi Neyya FR15NRTL Smart Ring, an unbelievable trinket that you must own!
What can you do with this ring? A lot, actually. It has been designed for businessmen, mainly, because it is a useful tool in working with Powerpoint presentations. Moreover, you can turn the music on your phone or PC with it.
You can play or stop videos, take selfies, control your GoPro camera, your calls and text messages (only on Android). The ring charges wirelessly in one hour and a half and lasts for three days. It is made of stainless steel, and the touchpad is made of plastic.
The setup is one of the best things about it. You won’t need any software that you’d spend weeks trying to understand. You’re all set in one minute! To put it shortly, you gain full control of everything digital in 60 seconds.
Obviously, the things you can do with it all qualify as pros. It can control your phone and laptop/PC and everything that happens there. It’s a great tool for those who work in an office where they’re on the phone all day long or stuck in front of the computer.
With all these, the cons weigh heavily on my verdict concerning the feasibility of this particular item.
First of all, there’s no Android support whatsoever, although the product is advertised as having one. You are told to download the Neyya app from the store, but there’s no Neyya app to begin with.
Because of this, you won’t be able to use more than half of the features on it. Second of all, some controls may be unresponsive, not to mention the fact that it’s really huge.
The price, too, can be a drawback for many people, since it goes well over $100. A good remote can be purchased for half that sum or even less.
If you decide to purchase this ring, I advise you to look it up on Amazon, perhaps there you could find some good discounts and could get free shipping. If you’re on a budget, you could find a used one to buy.
Until now, this ring has gotten only negative reviews. It definitely looks like the company doesn’t even care about that because it’s nowhere to be found. Frustrating.
If this product were everything advertised by the company, then yes, the price would be more than justifiable, but in this light, it is not. You simply pay $100 + for controlling the volume of your music. Not cool!
