Charm bracelets are a traditional way for teenagers to keep their closest friends in mind, but Twinkl bracelet is taking that concept out of the past and rethinking it for a digital future. Twinkl is a small, low-profile rubber bracelet that comes with slots for different digitized charms, letting users communicate with their friends and loved ones through vibrations.

Each Twinkl bracelet comes with a set of several charms which are linked to their own bracelet. Teens are meant to exchange charms with one another, fitting their friends' charms into the slots on their own bracelet. When a user presses down on the charm they received, the giver's Twinkl bracelet will buzz, no matter where they are.

Twinkl bracelets pair with users' smartphones and use internet connectivity to buzz when they are activated.
