Smart Jewelry for Busy Women

FashionTEQ’s Zazzi offers a discreet way for women to receive messages and reminders, while leaving the phone in the purse, bag, or pocket.

Thank you for your support!  FashionTEQ unveiled the Zazzi collection prototypes at CES2014.  The feedback on Zazzi was amazing.  Everyone who stopped by the booth or saw a demo loved the idea, especially women.  They see the need to have smart, stylish jewelry. We're at the start of something big!!

We also got some feedback on refining  Zazzi - you want it thinner and more bling! We heard you and we are now making this happen.

Please keep in touch with us and stay tuned for the new design!

Zazzi jewelry also vibrates to notify you, so you don’t miss out on any important news!

Never forget your phone as Zazzi will alert you when it senses that it is separated too far from it’s paired device.

About Zazzi

The Product Zazzi is a new jewelry line that features a 1.44” e-ink screen that syncs with your iPhone (we’ll be expanding to Android in the next generation) to let you express yourself and stay connected at the same time.

zazzi wearable tech bracelet pendant ring fashionteq


Made by FashionTEQ, the Zazzi ring, pendant necklace, and bracelet all disguise your tech as a fashionable, gorgeous accessory so it doesn’t look like you have a phone sitting on your wrist. For ease of use, the Zazzi offers simple capabilities that are easy to program to your Zazzi pendant through the Zazzi smartphone app.

Since the Zazzi syncs to your phone, you can also choose to have notifications and messages pushed to your bracelet, pendant, or ring. You don’t need to pull your phone out of your purse, bag, or pocket to know who’s calling you, who’s texting you, that there’s a new email waiting for you, or that your next appointment is in five minutes, or that your favorite team is winning their game.

You’ll be able to choose which notifications you receive, and for which contacts you receive them. You can choose to have only family calls, or work calls, pushed to your Zazzi if you’d like. You can choose which image shows up for each person and each notification, and if you’d like your Zazzi to vibrate. You can choose any graphic through the Zazzi application on your smartphone, and have it displayed on your Zazzi while you go through your day. Going to a baseball game? Put your team’s logo on the Zazzi. Going to a fancy work dinner? Display your favorite work of art or a snazzy geometric design.

Problem & Solution

Technology has become fully integrated into our everyday lives; we rely on it constantly. However, it is barely tailored to match our personal styles or self-expression. Everyone’s phone looks the same! With Zazzi jewelry, women can accessorize their technology, making it functional and stylish. Not only that, everyone knows when you’re receiving a call if your phone starts buzzing in a meeting, at the coffee shop, or in the middle of dinner. It can be intrusive for you and your company. With the Zazzi, your phone won’t scream in public – your jewelry will vibrate and only you will know you’re receiving a call or text.

The FashionTEQ team is focused on making it easier for everyone to be connected, but not having technology disrupt our every day. You won’t have to pull your phone out of your bag to see who’s trying to get in touch with you or who tweeted at you, and not only that, you can match your tech to whatever you’re wearing, where you’re going, or just the style you prefer.
