While grocery shopping, I explode with white-hot rage. When cooking pasta, I fume with Hulk-like fury. During a stroll through the park, my stress levels are through the roof — or so my ring tells me. It wants me to mellow out and take deep breaths. Who knew a plastic hunk of jewelry could help me stop and smell the roses?
Turns out the $250 bling on my finger — a souped-up, high-tech version of a mood ring called the Moodmetric ring — can do just that. It joins a growing crop of emotion-tracking wearables recently introduced from Helsinki to Palo Alto, all vying to slip onto your hand and wrist to help you find Zen in your busy life.
