Here's what Brian Felix of Safe With Tech had to say about it:

The WiseWear team has left no stone unturned. Till now all wearable techs have been programmed to function either as distress alarm or fitness trackerโ€ฆ Personal safety and security are crucial for everyone, especially for women. Because of this fact, WiseWear took the extra concern to include safety features in socialite. Whether going for an early morning walk or returning home late at midnight, this luxury smart jewelry empowers women to live life carefree.

Leaf Nature Silver Edition

The Leaf from Bellabeat takes everything you think you know about fitness trackers and turns it on its head.

Built and programmed to track not only sleep and your activity status, the Leaf also monitors your stress levels, guides you in meditation, and keeps track of your menstrual cycle for the benefit of your reproductive health.

Malarie Gokey of Digital Trends doesn't want to take it off:

The Leaf looks like normal jewelry, so it's often mistaken as a necklace, pin, or cool bracelet โ€” not a piece of tech. I've gotten many compliments on the Leaf from non tech savvy friends and the techiest of my coworkers. It blends in with my other jewelry and my sense of style, which isn't something I can honestly say about any other wearable I've donned. That's why I've worn it every day since it arrived.

The Leaf is a unique piece of Smart Jewellery. It doesn't need to be charged, since the replaceable battery lasts up to 6-months, and it can secure any backup data that's tracked and recorded throughout the day,

You can pick up your Leaf Nature or Urban in rose gold, silver, gray, or black.

Nimb Smartring

If you're someone who believes in safety first, while still being stylish and fashion-forwards, then the Nimb Smartring has your back!

Julian Chokkattu of Digital Trends:

You can ask your smartphone to dial 911 hands-free, but what about in dangerous situations when you need to do it discretely? Grabbing your phone or smartwatch may be a little too obvious, but clicking your ring may do the trick. Nimb is a wearable that does just that โ€” it's a smart ring that will alert specific contacts and local authorities with your GPS location in the event of an emergency.

Designed to act as a mobile panic button of sorts, the Nimb reacts to users touching their thumb to their ring in order to send out a message for help to their contacts. By simply pressing the portion of the ring that faces your palm for around 3-seconds, an alert will instantly be sent out with your location. And don't worry about accidentally pressing it โ€“ there's a 20-second window that lets you cancel the alert no problem.

But what if the attacker forces you to cancel the alert? "You can use a special password for forced cancellation," Nimb co-founder Kathy Roma said in an interview with Digital Trends. "Your trusted contacts will immediately know that someone forced you to cancel the alert."

The Nimb has recently surpassed its $50,000 goal by nearly $200,000 and will begin shipping out and the beginning of this year.
