Amazon Echo Loop Smart Ring Problems
Smart rings are a rather paradoxical class of gadgets. They have a damn convenient format, probably the best of all wearable electronics. But at the same time, none of the developers really knows what to do with them. Due to the lack of a common vector of movement, manufacturers pull the ingenious idea of smart rings into shreds, step on the same rake, and over and over again invent bicycles without the steering wheel, pedals and wheels. Smart rings will remain toys for geeks full of children’s sores:
- they are not that small, especially when it comes to models with a display and a battery, so it may not be very convenient to carry them around on your finger all day;
- they are not very pretty: there are also cute models, but a typical smart ring looks like a plastic toy from “Kinder Surprise”, which only a fifth-grader can wear without shame in public;
- they are buggy: again, not all, but many, because they are usually released with crowdfunding money from small companies that have neither the strength nor the funds to debug production and fine-tune the software.
