  • ​While exposure to SOME sunlight is necessary, we all know that getting too much is not a good idea – among other things, it can cause sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. With that in mind, a new paper wristband has been designed to let us know when to seek the shade.
  • If you know someone with a compulsive behavior such as nail-biting, you may find yourself constantly telling them, "Hey, you're doing it again." The problem is, you can't be watching/stopping them all the time. That's why HabitAware's Liv bracelet was created.
  • Tago Arc is an E Ink fashion accessory that can be customized to look exactly as the user desires, and never needs to be charged. It connects to a smartphone companion app, allowing the wearer to create their own designs, or purchase from a library of images.
  • Leatherman multi-tools can certainly come in handy, but they are one more thing that has to be stuffed in a pocket or hung on a belt. That's where the Leatherman Tread comes in. It's a stainless steel bracelet that incorporates 25 tools within its links.
  • Leapfrog's LeapBand is a virtual pet gaming device merged with a fitness tracker that motivates kids to move using gameplay and activity challenges. Is it enough to get them to be more physically active though? Read on to find out.
  • Lathering yourself in mosquito-repelling lotions might not be ideal, but it's better than those red swellings that would otherwise pop up on any exposed skin. The Invisaband releases a natural oil to confuse mosquitoes' senses, saving you from bites and applying layers of oily repellents.

  • Safelet is a simple safety bracelet which allows the wearer to send out an alert whenever they feel in danger. It can be activated a lot quicker and more simply than a mobile phone, and offers important information to those on the receiving end of the emergency alert.
  • Tinitell is a simple smartphone designed for the wrist that offers a way for parents to keep tabs on their offspring. With just the most basic selection of buttons and voice recognition software it's suitable for children of all ages.
