Hey Guys,

 

 

 

I'm after simply a Bluetooth bracelet that vibrates when my phone rings/sms. Nothing else. I work in data centres a lot and often can't hear my phone (I have it on quite a low volume setting because of babies), nor feel the vibration.

 

 

 

The only thing I can find so far is one on kogan... but it's huge and ugggggggggggggggggly.

 

 

 

Any suggestions?

I picked up an Actiiv Fitband for $30 at KMart a few months back. Its a step tracker thing, but also syncs with your phone to buzz when you get a call or txt or appointment. Plus it tells you the time if you're into that sort of thing.

A cheap syncable fitness band is probably your best option,

Probably above your target budget, but I love my Pebble watch, got the pebble time for $99US free shipping last Christmas during a special.  They are a bit more expensive now, and new ones are due out in the next few months.

Otherwise there is a whole stack of cheapies here: http://www.dx.com/c/consumer-electronics-199/smart-devices-178/wearable-devices-1781/smart-bracelets-178101
