Which option do you think is a more heartwarming option?

That’s right! Rather than using vibration, HEY Bracelets have a unique piece of technology built in that will tighten the strap of the bracelet giving your friend’s wrist a gently squeeze.

There is a dedicated smartphone app to connect the bracelets, allowing you to send and receive ‘touches’ from one another. You can also keep track of when and where you’ve sent and received touches for a trip down memory lane.
