Attached To Your Phone? Ringly Just Made Things A Lot Worse

If the relationship we have with our phone wasn't worrying enough, it's about to get a whole lot worse. Our iPhone already spends its day glued to our hand, sleeps in our bed and even third wheels at romantic dinner dates. And what's more, most city dwellers have two of them.

But thanks to some unnecessary new technology you can now stay digitally tethered to your phone via a Bluetooth ring. Essentially, you can marry your iPhone.

Introducing the Ringly, the wearable piece of technology which connects to an iPhone or Android and alerts the wearer with a vibration and flashing light to incoming texts, calls, calendar alerts, or emails.


The perfect accessory for the busy girl who doesn't want to miss a thing? Sure - but it's also a sign of the ever increasing pressure to be constantly connected.

In theory, the Ringly wearer is aware of communication without being that annoying friend who's always checking their phone.

As The Cut's Allison P Davis puts it, "The function of the device is basically to make you a better people-pleaser: You're available to everyone and disappointing no one, neither the person you're talking to nor anyone else who might be trying to reach you from afar."

Sounds convenient, but also hideous.
