Wearable tech never looked so chic.

Besides looking gorgeous, MICA is no pushover in the technology department. The smart bracelet receives notifications like SMS and meetings alerts from smartphone devices with additional features and functions to be released at a later date. With the purchase of Basis under its belt since March 2014, can we expect to see the new Intel Body IQ and Social IQ technology in MICA? We’re keeping our fingers crossed.
