Bionym -- Now Nymi -- Announces They Will Begin Shipping Nymi Band Discovery Kits to Developers

The Nymi Team Has Begun Selling Final Hardware Nymi Bands to Developers in Nymi Band Discovery Kits to Begin Shipping on December 15th 2014

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Dec 3, 2014) - The team behind the Nymi Band announces today that they have begun selling a developer-targeted version of the Nymi Band called the "Nymi Band Discovery Kit" which will begin shipping on December 15th 2014. The kit includes the final hardware Nymi Band, the Nymi Companion Application, the Unlock Application and the Nymi Password Vault for the Windows platform. The Mac versions of these applications will follow shortly. Both will work with Nymi's existing Software Development Kit (SDK). Qualified customers can change their Nymi Band preorders to Nymi Band Discovery Kits while maintaining the preorder price of $79.

"The Nymi Band Discovery Kit represents an important milestone for us," says Lauren Long, Product Manager at Nymi. "This kit makes our hardware widely available to the developer community to continue fueling the development of the Nymi ecosystem."

The Nymi Band Discovery Kit will provide Nymi Developers hardware so they can continue to build applications and integrations that focus on providing persistent identity using Nymi's patented HeartID technology.

"The Nymi Band stands as the only wearables platform that is looking to change the way we provide our identity to the devices and services around us," says Shawn Chance, VP of Marketing at Nymi. "Due to the scope of the project, the addition of new international partners, and our ongoing commitment to security, we believe that launching the Nymi Band Discovery Kit is an important step towards releasing the final product to pre-orders and the general public."

Nymi Band preorders not wishing to receive the Nymi Band Discovery Kit will keep their preorder pricing, and will be shipped units when final software is available in the new year.

The exclusive pre-order price of $79.00 is valid through December 31st, 2014.

As of January1, 2015, Nymi Band and Nymi Band Discovery Kit pricing will be $149.00. Place your order or pre-order before the end of the year to secure early adopter pricing.

At the same time, Bionym is announcing that it will be changing its name to Nymi Inc. Their first product will now be referred to as the Nymi Band™.

Along with the name switchover, Nymi launches a new website: It will feature all of the latest information on the Nymi Band, including partner information, updated images of the Nymi Band, videos, blogs and more.
