Intel MICA Smart Bracelet is Tech with the Fashion Edge

September 5, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Abundant are those wrist wearables that offer smart connectivity with your smartphones. But even in that abundance lies the fact that elegance could go missing. Most of them are sporty, trendy and handy, but they fail to match with the fashion sense.

Tackling the same is now Intel with their new smart bracelets for women. The name itself boasts elegance. MICA, as it is called, is short for ‘My Intelligent Communication Accessory’. Yes it’s intelligent as well as aesthetic.

MICA is a tech enabled bracelet that packs a sapphire display, embraced by semi precious gems and that mark the luxury element in it.

Keep style aside and you have pure technology which of course Intel is good at. The wearable could be connected to your smartphones to have notifications being displayed right across the 1.6 inch sapphire screen and could even prove worthy without a smartphone connectivity. The MICA will be coming out in two variants-  black and white.

The black snake skin variant would feature pearls from China and lapis stones from Madagascar, while the white snake skin version would be featuring the tiger’s eye from South Africa and obsidian from Russia.

The bracelet also boasts two-way wireless communication over 3G cellular networks. The device could be charged the wired way through USB or via wireless charging.

The device is set for official launch at the Opening Ceremony spring/summer 2015 fashion show on Sunday, during the Fashion Week in New York. MICA would then be made available on Barneys luxury stores and Opening Ceremony stores during the holiday season.

Though no further details are yet to come by, it’s expected that the device would come with a price tag of below $1000.
