The MICA comes with its own 3G radio, which means it won’t have to be tethered to a smartphone to pull up emails, text messages, and posts from your social media feed.
This information is displayed on a 1.6-inch curved touchscreen coated with scratch-resistant sapphire, which faces the inside of your wrist rather than the outside like most smartwatches. This is meant to keep your information private, according to Intel.
Intel’s New Devices Group partnered with Opening Ceremony to create MICA. The high tech bracelet was designed as an accessory first and gadget second; it sure looks the part. Estimated price will be about US$1,000 at Barneys and Opening Ceremony stores. Pricey.
