Ringly Review- The stylish designer tech smart ring!


Smart rings are getting popular in the market. So if you are looking for a smart ring to suit your style, Ringly might be for you. Here is a review of Ringly covering all its aspects and its features.


The jewelry has attracted a lot of attention for its bold design and ability to deliver notifications to the user. Getting alerts on your hand through a fashionable device has its advantages, especially if you are not near your phone. However, for those who want a little more, this ring might not be the option. The design is more divisive than other wearables and the massive, loud form factor may not appeal to everyone. If the concept appeals to you but you don’t want the chunky design, you can go for the Aries bracelet. It records fitness while keeping the bulk to a minimum.


  • Easy to use
  • Durable
  • Easy syncing process


  • Bulky
  • Design isn’t for everyone
  • Expensive

The first thing you would notice on the ring is the enormous gemstone. According to the website, the jewels are 14 x 19 mm. So if you are into big jewels, thing ring is for you. Despite the trend of big jewelry, it’s all about comfort. So, if huge rings are not your thing, you need to think about them before you buy them. The Ringly appears to be rather durable. Despite all of the technology stuffed within, it’s difficult to know it’s a connected device. Even the side-mounted LED indicator light is a work of art.

The stones are imported from all around the world. This helps to justify the high price, especially as the Classic Collection bands are all plated with 18K matte gold. This includes the Lapis Lazuli, Stargaze Black Onyx, and Into the Woods Emerald. However, if you are allergic to nickel, you should avoid the base because it includes trace amounts. The Libra ring series has three styles: Wanderlust labradorite, Dive bar tourmaline quartz, and Opening night black onyx. These three are nickel-free and have gunmetal-plated brass bands. According to the company, Ringly is water-resistant. However, you shouldn’t submerge it for long periods of time. However, dishwashing and handwashing should be fine in general.

The Ringly may not look the part, but it gets a lot of things right. The band is thin and is really comfortable to wear. It comes in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 and has a tiny LED light that emits five different colors for notification. These colors are blue, green, yellow, red, and pink/purple. The device contains an internal vibrating motor. You can customize your notifications in the mobile app. You can choose from five different colors and four distinct vibrating patterns. For instance, you can set it to vibrate once and flash pink when you receive an email. Whereas, vibrate twice and flash pink when you receive a text message. This may appear to be difficult, and initially, you might feel confused.

Ringly integrates with over 80 apps. This includes Line, Gilt, Uber, Instagram, and Tinder. You can even configure it to alert you when you receive a text or phone call from a certain person. Ringly only serves as a notification system. So, to respond, you must pick up your phone. It’s not a smartwatch in terms of functionality, but it’s useful if you’re waiting for a call or text.



The main concept of this ring is to connect to your smartphone through Bluetooth and offer you haptic and light feedback when you receive notifications. It even allows you to customise the type of vibrations and lights. Ringly can sync with over 100 apps for both iOS and Android. You’ll be able to get a Ringly notice for it as long as it’s installed on your phone. Moreover, it will also function roughly 20-30 feet away from your phone on average. So, you can leave your phone at any corner of your home, and still get alerts for any calls and messages. The only issue is that once you have more than five notification alerts going, it’s difficult to figure out the haptics and lights.

Mobile App

Ringly Mobile App

It’s simple to connect your ring to the app. Ringly is also compatible with iPhone 5 and subsequent models running iOS 8 or higher. It is even compatible with Android devices running Android 4.3 or higher. Make sure the ring is fully charged and the phone’s Bluetooth is turned on after downloading it from the app store. In the Ringly app, tap Connect, and it will be ready to pair. You’ll be able to set up notifications in the same way that you can sync. Select Notifications, then scroll through the choices to alter the LED colour. You don’t want a light linked with the alert if you choose the grey colour.

You can choose from four distinct vibration patterns by tapping on the dots. Then, you can click on ‘edit’ in the top right corner to customize it. Moreover, you can also turn off notifications. The way the ring lights up and vibrates as you customise it is a neat aspect. When you take your ring off, it goes into sleep mode. This saves battery life. There are a total of four choices in your app that you can turn on or off, including sleep mode.

With Connection taps, you can touch the ring twice to see if it’s linked to the phone or disconnected. A blue light indicates that it’s connected, while a pink light says that it’s disconnected. You can also use the ‘out of range’ function to make Ringly buzz if it gets too far away from your phone and disconnects. Furthermore, there’s a notice that says the battery is low.

Battery life and Charging

Battery Life

Ringly’s battery life isn’t excellent, and depending on how often you use it, it should barely last one to two days only. There is most likely a little battery inside the ring, and anything larger would result in an even larger form. The charging time is approximately four hours. Fortunately, the charger is a little ring box that won’t get lost. If you don’t want to have it plugged in all the time, the box itself can retain a charge for over a week. You will see a red light blinking to indicate that the Ringly is charging.

The ring box also serves as a dock. The charging box is charged using a micro-USB cable. Because the charging box is inductive, you only need to insert your Ringly in the slot for it to begin charging. The box looks to have magnets as well since your ring will pop out if you put it in reverse.


It’s difficult to suggest Ringly altogether, especially because of its high price. Moreover, the ring simply alerts you about your notifications. However, Ringly’s elegant Aries fitness-tracking bracelet is a good option if you want something more. It has just enough capability with its customised notifications to make it worth placing on your finger. It also allows you to wear smart jewellery on your finger rather than your wrist. So, if you are not interested in wristbands, this might be ideal for you. Smartwatches require you to pick between tech and elegance, but the Ringly does not. You can’t precisely wear another watch if you’re wearing an Apple Watch, but you can simply wear other rings if you’re wearing a Ringly.
