This example of wearable tech makes a personal safety device look more fashionable than ever before. The Siren Ring looks like a sophisticated piece of jewelry that is actually powered by patent-pending technology that is engineered to protect the wearer.

Created by Kat Alexander, the handcrafted chunky ring was inspired by a 'scary encounter' in school. Available in six different styles, the Siren Ring contains a "startling, unbearably loud" 110 decibel alarm that is set off by twisting the top.

This personal safety device is a new kind of wearable compared to other fitness-goal achieving wristbands or sensors. It is also a timely item given recent conversations concerning the grave issue of sexual assault and harassment in the news as of late.
