Nimb Is A Smart Ring With Panic Button

Emergencies are scary, but there is now a new smart ring on the market that will quickly call for help when you need it most.

Meet Nimb, a ring that includes a panic button. It lets you send emergency alerts to preset contacts from its mobile app with the touch of a thumb.

Whether you are being attacked or experiencing a serious health emergency, Nimb will help keep you safe and sound.

Smart Ring To The Rescue

The story behind the development with this new technology is unique and touching.

In 2000, Kathy Roma, who is the co-founder and communications lead with Nimb, was violently attacked by a complete stranger and was on the brink of death. She suffered multiple stab wounds and lacerations in a safe neighborhood, just a few feet away from a police station. Her saving grace wasn’t just her fight and drive to survive, but the call for help.

Since then, she has been searching to find a way for others to have a voice when they’re in need of help and has been a driving force in the development of this new technology.


And Nimb is easy to use. All you need to do when you are in trouble is press its button for three seconds and an instant message will be sent to your contacts. All your contacts will receive instant emergency alerts on their smartphones or tablets. 

This smart ring tracks your exact location in real time and your contacts will know where you are at all times. You can set Nimb up to alert emergency services, as well as your family and friends.

The technology is also great for parents with kids and seniors who have health issues, as well for those who are into extreme sports and traveling.

Nimb’s app includes an alert card, and built-in chat and notification features. The ring is compatible with Bluetooth 4+, iOS 7+ and Android 4+.  It is also equipped with a rechargeable Li-Po Battery that will last about two weeks, and was designed to withstand water and dust.

Nimb: Be Safe In Style

What makes this smart ring extra special is that it has a cool futuristic design, and is very comfortable to wear. It comes in two colors: Stealth Black and Classic White. The ring is available in US ring sizes 4-12, which means you can wear it on any of your fingers.

There’s no doubt that this new technology will be a hit on the market: everyone wants to have that extra piece of mind when it comes to health and safety. Nimb retails for $129 (USD).
