Rebecca Minkoff in collab with Case-Mate just entered (like today) the wearable-tech game, with two cool bracelets. And here's the thing—whether you're the geekiest of geeks or on the techie-challenged side, you'll want to clasp these babies on.
Because of their smart design, no one will even know you're connected or wearing anything other than a fashion-forward piece of jewelry. Both the Notification Bracelet ($120) and the Lightning Cable Bracelet ($58) are super easy to work into your tech and fashion routines. The duo is available online and in stores.
The Notification, a goldtone chain-link bracelet with pyramid studs, vibrates when a call or text comes in on your mobile, via Bluetooth. (You can program up to 25 contacts.) The Lightning is a black-leather number starring Rebecca Minkoff's signature flat goldtone studs. The gold clasp secretly hides the wires that transform into a USB connector to charge and synch your iPhone.
James Bond, eat your heart out.
