Seven, a consumer electronic startup, has introduced the 7 Ring smart ring in India. The new wearable comes with an interesting standout feature, which is the ability to make contactless payments with its help.
7 Ring: Specs and Features
The 7 Ring smart wearable has a Zirconia Ceramic build and comes with scratch resistance, which can make the case both durable and stylish. It also has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. You can choose from the 7 size options available.
- There’s support for NFC (near-field communication), which ensures stable connectivity without any reliance on Bluetooth. The main highlight is that it supports a convenient payment technology, which can help you initiate contactless payments with a single tap. There won’t be a need for a wallet, phone, app, PIN, or OTP when the amount is lower than Rs 5,000.
- You can simply place the hand on the POS machine with the ring on and the payment will be done. This is a passive ring, which takes power from the POS machine and hence, doesn’t have a battery of its own and doesn’t require charging. There’s also support for UPI, LivQuik, M2P, and more.
- There’s a companion app by Seven, which can help you manage the 7 Ring easily. It also includes a prepaid wallet, passbook, and more. It is environment-friendly and safe too as its design makes it less prone to fraud. The smart ring is made in India.
Price and Availability
The 7 Ring smart ring has an MRP of Rs 7,000 and can currently be ordered (by select people) for Rs 4,777 as an early bird offer via the company’s website.
