MOTA® to Debut the MOTA SmartRing at IFA Berlin This Week

Gives Users Absolute Freedom Over Their Connected Lives

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - September 01, 2014) - MOTA today announced the MOTA SmartRing, a stylish, high-tech ring for smartphone notifications that gives wearers absolute freedom over their connected lives.

Once paired with an Android or iPhone, MOTA SmartRing users can receive notifications of incoming calls, text messages, calendar notifications and email. Users decide for themselves exactly who they want to talk with and which events they wish to be updated about.

The SmartRing displays notifications in text form, with users able scroll through words at the speed they wish. The SmartRing provides maximum discretion over notifications, letting the wearer enable and disable audible and tactile alerts.

MOTA also announced a complimentary app for iOS and Android mobile devices that allows the SmartRing to work with popular applications such as Facebook and Twitter, and, if enough people support the SmartRing, other popular apps such as Instagram, Uber, and LinkedIn.

"Notification of incoming calls, texts and app information has become the single most important function of a mobile phone," said MOTA Co-Founder Kevin Faro. "But it's also become a major thorn in the side of the mobile user. The types and sources of notifications are proliferating rapidly. Increasingly many are being presented as urgent. Users tell us they continually have to delve into different apps on their phones and are becoming swamped trying to keep up. The MOTA SmartRing gives wearers a super easy and very natural way to see who's trying to reach them anytime, anywhere."

Incredibly compact and light, the SmartRing is water resistant and has a vibrant screen viewable even in bright light such as outdoors.

The MOTA SmartRing and app will be unveiled at IFA, the major consumer electronics event in Berlin beginning September 5 and running through September 10. The SmartRing's pricing is to be announced. The SmartRing will be available from leading retailers in North America in late Q4, 2014. To find out more, please visit https://www.mota.com/mota-smart-ring/.
