Lycos to launch smart wristband and ring

Lycos, one of the leading internet brands, has announced that it will launch next week Lycos Life, a line of wearable devices that serve as a single point of entry into users’ digital lives.

Initially delivered in the form of a smart wristband (priced at $124.99) and ring ($59.99), Lycos Life products allow users to live secure, communicative, healthy and efficient lives, said the Hyderabad-based company.

The NSE and BSE listed company believes the products give a meaning to living within the Internet, rather than around it.

“The most valuable commodity in life is time and this technology helps Lycos Life users maximize their time by making smarter and more informed decisions using the data they receive from Lycos Life,” said Lycos president and chief strategy officer Brad Cohen.

Lycos Life has the capability to intelligently sense individuals’ everyday patterns and transfer this information securely and wirelessly to their phone via Bluetooth and its Tap to Transfer (T2T) communication protocol. Their wearable devices will also allow users to automatically monitor their activity, sleep, heart rate, incoming calls, and important notifications from their phone completely hands-free.

“We have been living and learning the Internet for the past 20 years, now the Internet is starting to learn us,” said Lycos chairman and CEO Suresh Reddy.

“Originally, what Lycos set out to solve was simplifying and making searching on the Internet more productive. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year, Lycos solving a new problem by simplifying your digital life,” he added.
