Time to be the trendiest tech gal on the streets.
Ringly Smart Ring, $165
Ringly is a tech and fashion lover's dream—and it's smaller than most wearable accessories you've ever seen. The ring tracks your activity—distance, steps, and calories burned—and lets you create and manage goals via the Ringly app. You can sync the ring to get custom phone alerts, and it's water resistant. Plus, the gorgeous gem and metal ring base come in a wide variety of colors and finishes, perfect for any fashionista.
Mezzi Mini Cosima Tech Purse, $295-325
The worst is when you're out and about—and your phone dies. Or is it worse when you're outside your car late at night and can't find your keys in your purse? Well, those are just two of the things this purse will help you avoid. The Mini Cosima has a phone charger, bluetooth speaker, in-bag light, device pockets to keep 'em secured, plus gives you message notifications and, to top it all off, it's made of genuine leather. With eight colors and styles, there's bound to be a design to match your favorite outfit. (And keep your phone charged while you're at it!)
We all have a sweet spot in our heart for Swarovski, and this time around is no different. This crystal, fit with activity tracking technology, is not only beautiful—it also measures your daily activities and quality of sleep. Plus, it syncs wirelessly with your smartphone. It's built for both work and play, and we want to add one to our jewelry collection, stat.
Neato is the skin savior you haven't heard of, but need. Measuring your sun exposure, the wrist accessory will notify you when you should should have sunscreen on, which is super important. It'll help you avoid sun damage and prevent premature skin aging—two things we may not always think about, but should.
As Shape.com says, this is the accessory meant for the career-driven gal that is always on-the-go. With the USB and lightning cord ends, it's the gorgeous accessory that'll have you and your portable charger's back.

It links automatically to the Kate Spade New York app to provide motivation and celebrations for your successes. It'll track your steps and sleep with light notifications, controls musics, takes selfies, and, most importantly, never needs charging. It's gorgeous and functional. Sign us up now.
Sports bra technology is something we never knew we needed until now.

Once you pair the heart rate meter to the Sensoria Fitness app, you will be able to track all of your fitness activity. Plus, the sweat wicking technology in the fabric itself removes humidity and helps your body stay dry in all climates. All of our workout dreams just came true.
