The original NFC Ring, as featured on The Guardian, Gizmodo, Techcrunch, BBC, The Washington Post and many more. The NFC Ring can be used to unlock doors, mobile phones, transfer information and link people. It comes with two special NFC tag inlays sealed inside the ring, allowing you to program each side to do different things - such as unlocking your phone, your door (with an NFC enabled door lock) or store custom settings for your device, for example. One smart ring, unlimited possibilities. This model is part of our 2016 range which provides a much greater operating range.

I personally use my NFC ring for 2 purposes:
1. The outside NFC chip (carbon fiber side) stores my name, email address, and phone number. I can 'fist bump' an Android phone to share my complete contact information. It's super fast, and people are extremely impressed by it.
2. The inside NFC chip (black side) is used to unlock my cell phone. I can just hold my phone in my hand, and it will unlock without needing to type in a passcode.
I was most impressed that the NFC chip was able to work despite my thick phone case. My Galaxy S5 phone case adds an additional 1/4 inch to the back, yet the ring is able to consistently be read through the phone case. I've been able to get my phone to read my ring from ~1/2 inch away.
You can store many different types of data, or trigger many different types of actions for your phone with the NFC chip. There are so many possibilities.
Most of what I'm going to say relates to my usage of the V1NTAG NFC Ring they sent me while I waited for them to figure out carbon fiber. I used my ring exclusively to unlock my phone. It gave me extra security while at various conventions because I could have however long a password on my phone I wanted and the ring would unlock fast without anyone potentially seeing said password. About the time the new rings came out I switched to a newer phone with a fingerprint unlock rendering the NFC unlock method redundant and I've not yet figured out what I want to do with my ring. There are lots of cool people out there that have done really neat things with their rings but those things either aren't useful or feasible where I live right now and my reason for taking off one star. I like my ring but I don't currently have a use for it. I mostly just wear it out of comfort at this point while I wait for a time when it can be useful to me.
Now to talk about the physical aspects of the Eclipse ring. It feels nice on the hand. Maybe a bit better than the original titanium rings did. I personally can't feel the engraving on the inside when it's on my lower finger but it is a neat idea. I just use it to see what side is up because I'm weird like that. It's so much nicer having two different designs above the NFC tags so I can tell what one goes out and what one stays in by my palm.
Overall I'd say this is a pretty cool product and if you don't have a fingerprint reader on your phone but do have NFC then this makes for the best way to unlock your phone.
I have a tendency some would call a ritual to lock myself out or lose my keys on a moment to moment basis. So the ring is perfect for my unlikely habit.
In March i dropped it and it snapped in half. Disappointed. I maybe should habe purchased a metal one. If there is a metal one.
