MOTA Announces their SmartRing Ahead of IFA 2014

September 1, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

This morning, MOTA made their SmartRing official. MOTA already has a smartwatch out and we’ve been taking a look at it over the last few weeks. It doesn’t run on Android Wear, but it is compatible with both Android and iOS, and the same can be said for the SmartRing. The SmartRing will show you all kinds of notifications, including incoming calls, Twitter notifications and more! Notifications are delivered in text-form.

“Notification of incoming calls, texts and app information has become the single most important function of a mobile phone,” said MOTA Co-Founder Kevin Faro. “But it’s also become a major thorn in the side of the mobile user. The types and sources of notifications are proliferating rapidly. Increasingly many are being presented as urgent. Users tell us they continually have to delve into different apps on their phones and are becoming swamped trying to keep up. The MOTA SmartRing gives wearers a super easy and very natural way to see who’s trying to reach them anytime, anywhere.”

MOTA says that the SmartRing will be available in late Q4 of this year, but pricing is not yet available. However, MOTA will be showing off their SmartRing at IFA this week, so if you’re in Berlin or heading to the show, you can go and take a look at the MOTA SmartRing. MOTA’s products are pretty cool, but they may not be for everyone. As it is just text based notifications, but they cannot reply to them.

MOTA also announced a complimentary app for iOS and Android mobile devices that allows the SmartRing to work with popular applications such as Facebook and Twitter, and, if enough people support the SmartRing, other popular apps such as Instagram, Uber, and LinkedIn.”

We  should see plenty of hands-on of the MOTA SmartRing at IFA once the show officially kicks off on September 5th. How many of you are excited to check out the MOTA SmartRing? Let us know in the comments below.
