The Xenxo S-Ring aims to become the Swiss army knife of smart rings as it packs a whole array of technologies and features. The list of functions begins from the phone extension - you can use Xenxo S-Ring as the phone speaker and microphone. It also works as a music player controller with a Bluetooth connected smartphone. The ring packs data storage of up to 4 GB through the USB interface, which also doubles for charging. Xenxo also has NFC functionality for payment features, vibration alarm, panic button, Bluetooth based access card for smart locks, voice assistant interface, and sensors for fitness tracking.
Xenxo is included on Indiegogo and Kickstarter crowdfunding platforms to finance the development this jack of all trades Smart Ring into a complete, commercial product.
Here is a quick rundown of the key features on Xenxo S-Ring.
Xenxo S-Ring provides smart key capabilites in two different flavours. The first one is based on Bluetooth pairing with the lock, and the second one uses NFC technology.
When launched, Xenxo S-Ring is planned to include a NFC chip for contactless payment.
A panic button is one of the highlights of Xenxo S-Ring. It works in the same way as in other Smart Ring devices - i.e., making a SOS call to a pre-defined list of contacts when the user presses the button.
Xenxo S-Ring advertises fitness tracking capabilities, however, the product specifications do not yet provide details other than that the device would not include heart rate measurement capabilities.
Xenxo S-Ring has also Bluetooth calling feature allowing you to leave the mobile phone in your pocket and still take that important call by using the ring.
Last, but not least, Xenxo S-Ring comes with a memory chip to store your sensitive data. Granted, these days 4 GB of memory is not something to write home about, yet it may come handy to have it on your finger in some situations - such as sharing contacts quickly.
