Jewel of the day: Opening Ceremony x Intel Smart Bracelet

To round out the week, another bracelet that is more than just a piece of jewellery. Assuming you aren’t yet throughly addicted to your smart phone, here is a smart bracelet, a collaboration between Opening Ceremony and Intel. It will show you appointment reminders, email and calendar notifications. And let’s face it – it’s more discreet than furtively checking your phone at a dinner party (though staring at your wrist with furrowed brow may cause some to look at you funny).
