If you’re like me and carry your phone in your bag you’ll know the frustration of missing most of your calls. Lucky, BUZZ BAND was invented for just that reason.

BUZZ BAND is a neat wristband that connects to the user’s phone via bluetooth. When the phone receives a call BUZZ BAND will vibrate and flash. The wristband will additionally vibrate when separated from the phone by more than 10 meters, perfect for those of us (yes me again) who often forget their phones.

The design is minimalistic, but it still is slightly too bulky. However the component can be removed and stuffed in other things. You could even sow it into the strap of your bag or Sugru it to a crocodile clip to clip to your clothes. But even so, as a wristband it’s perfect for sporty people like tennis players who’d rather keep their phones next to the court in their bags.

The setup is pretty easy. There’s only one button and I was able to connect it without reading the instructions, which was lucky because the instructions looked like a photocopy of a photocopy of broken English goodness. The instructions do say that you’ll need to recharge every 2 hours, but seeing as that sounds ridiculous we’ll put it down to bad English, because it also says that it’ll last up to 90 hours in standby mode.
