Social media is hard to escape, especially for the youth. Gemio is attempting to break into the social media game with hardware instead of software. Stay away from beaded friendship bracelets, and gravitate towards these tech-based ones instead.

The Gemio pairs up with other of its kind, therefore it’s a great item to purchase as a group of friends. At the end of the day, there’s no point in purchasing a Gemio if you don’t have anyone to pair up with. Once synced, the bracelets will light up notifying you when your friends are nearby. The app communicates through low-energy Bluetooth and is compatible with both Andriod and Apple. This gadget isn’t limited to geographic notifications, it can be programmed to light up whenever your friends send you a message or give you a call.

However, the Gemio isn’t completely digital. It can be customized with detachable gems. There are over 100 different gems to choose from so there is bound to be a style that satisfies your needs.
