Often miss out on important calls and texts because you don't notice your ring-tone

A new bluetooth-enabled wearable ring allows users to check smartphone alerts and manage incoming calls right from their finger.

Users can manage the settings of the gadget called Smarty Ring from a mobile app, and can even use the device as a watch, timer or phone finder, 'Mashable' reported.

If a user walks more than 30 feet from his phone, the ring will beep to alert him that he has left something behind.

The gadget keeps users updated with incoming & outgoing call notifications and alerts for text and e-mail messages.

It also gives them real time updates from Facebook, Twitter, Hangout & Skype, according to the project website.

The stainless-steel ring has a 24-hour battery life. It is compatible with both android and iOS devices, as long as they have Bluetooth 4.0 capabilities.
