Now, a new line of wearable devices launched by Lycos- a search engine and web portal - will serve as a single point of entry into users' digital lives.
Initially delivered in the form of a smart wristband and ring, Lycos Life products allow users to live secure, communicative, healthy and efficient lives.
The wearable devices have the capability to intelligently sense individuals' everyday patterns and transfer this information securely and wirelessly to your phone via Bluetooth and its Tap to Transfer (T2T) communication protocol.
They also allow users to automatically monitor their activity, sleep, heart rate, incoming calls, and important notifications from their phone completely hands-free. "The most valuable commodity in life is time and this technology helps Lycos Life users maximize their time by making smarter and more informed decisions using the data they receive from the device," said Brad Cohen, president & chief strategy officer of Lycos.
"We have been living and learning the Internet for the past 20 years, now the Internet is starting to learn us," said Suresh Reddy, Chairman and CEO of Lycos. "Originally, what LYCOS set out to solve was simplifying and making searching on the Internet more productive.
As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary this year, Lycos is solving a new problem by simplifying your digital life." Reddy said Lycos has developed software that can learn who you are, what you prefer, and what you do based on your own patterns and behaviors.
"All of this is done securely by allowing you to control your own personal data and never sharing this information." Soon, Lycos Life will be able to uniquely identify its wearer by using its onboard sensors to recognize its user simply by the way they move.
