Intel MICA smart bracelet costs $495 USD and can be purchased only in the US
Intel MICA
This new wearable has been designed by Opening Ceremony and engineered by Intel, offers up to two days of autonomy and will hit the US in early December for $495 USD.

The fact that Intel would launch a wearable has been in the rumor mill for a while now, but most were expecting a fitness tracker or a smartwatch. MICA is, in fact, a premium fashion accessory for ladies that "connects fashion-forward women to text messages, Google and Facebook notifications, and local business recommendations powered by Yelp and TomTom."

MICA stands for "My Intelligent Communication Accessory" and has been designed by Opening Ceremony. Engineered by Intel, this wearable has a premium design that uses precious gems and Ayers snakeskin. It can provide easy access to text messages and incoming emails, Google Calendar and Facebook events, intelligent reminders, as well as Yelp local search. Intel MICA works up to two days on a single charge and uses the ubiquitous micro USB port to recharge its battery.

This device will be exclusively available in the United States, where it is scheduled to go on sale next month at OpeningCeremony.us and Barneys.com, as well as in their stores. Intel MICA will sell for $495 USD connected to AT&T's network. This price includes a two-year wireless service plan provided by Intel. We will get back to this smart bracelet next month.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
