Bejeweled Biometrics

FLIP is the latest in the wearable biometric tech craze, but quite different from  fitness bands and smartwatches.

Easily paired with smart devices, FLIP acts as a pedometer, heart rate monitor, sleep analyzer and more, providing real-time bio-data expressed in a simplified, user-friendly app.
