Smart bracelets and smart necklaces have attracted hordes of fitness geeks and health buffs who want to track their every step, motion, heart rate and even calories.

But most of the smart jewellery that first came out were only good to wear in the gym or with your sweatpants and workout gear. Not many of them were presentable enough to wear at the office or with a dress, and don’t come nearly as elegant as a pearl ring design or pieces done by Argyle jewellers in Australia.

That is until this group of ‘wearables’ came out. Now, fashion and technology have been fused and they even go beyond the mere fitness tracker. Smart jewellery now has a bigger focus on designer style, making them the perfect accessory not just for the health conscious but also for fashion forward individuals.

Here are our top picks for new smart jewellery pieces.

Swarovski Shine, Tory Burch Fitbit

Fashion meets fitness in these two wearables. Swarovski and Tory Burch are, of course, the ones putting the fashion into Misfit’s and Fitbit’s health and fitness gadgets. With these wearables, you can step out in style when sporting your tracker. Both of them can be worn as a smart necklace or bracelet. The Swarovski Shine comes in different colours, including violet, and the band is bedecked with gorgeous Swarovski crystals. The Tory Burch Fitbit, on the other hand, comes in gold and silver with the signature open framework that Tory Burch is known for.

MICA, Ringly

What do these two have in common? They integrate technology, specifically your smartphone, more closely into your daily life. Using a smart bracelet (MICA) or ring (Ringly) you will be notified when you receive important text messages, calls or emails through colour notifications or vibration alerts. The MICA goes beyond just being an accessory to your smartphone though, as it can function independently by delivering replies, FB alerts and appointment reminders. Ringly is adorned with semi-precious and precious gems like the moonstone, sapphire, onyx, emerald and quartz. MICA, on the other hand, is embellished with beautiful pearls and an 18k gold finish.

JUNE, Wristify

A bracelet you can wear to measure your sun exposure and another that can help keep you warm or cool. These are what JUNE and Wristify are all about. JUNE is made of leather wrapband and a ‘jewel’ with built-in UV sensors. Once synced with your iPhone, it can notify you how much UV exposure you’re getting; when you should apply SPF; and what specific SPF level you need to ensure maximum protection. Wristify, on the other hand, is a silver band that will emit heat or cool waves unto your wrists to give you a body-wide sensation of thermal comfort.

Any of these pieces would not only help you look fashionable, they will also help keep you stay connected, fit, healthy, and comfortable. Are these smart bracelets and smart necklaces something you would wear?

Jewellery has surely come a long way, it’s exciting to think about where it will bring us in years to come.

Perhaps soon we’ll see pearl jewellery that will help us travel. Who knows? Right now the possibilities are endless.
