Wrist-worn wearable devices are massively popular, but the Token ring is a new connected, wearable gadget that hopes to solve the one drawback of such technology. If there's any obvious issue with wearable wristband devices, its that even the sleekest of those bands are still relatively conspicuous. Token rings more seamlessly integrate the benefits of wearable tech into ones life by fitting all the features into a minimalist ring.

The Token ring is impressively functional. It can store users credit cards and engender tap payments, it can serve as one's house keys or car keys for keyless entry systems, it can store passwords for software, and more. For those worried about security on such a small and potentially easy-to-misplace device, it uses biometric technology to only activate if the intended user is wearing it.
