Forget diamonds. If you want to declare your love in the digital age, why not get your special someone this fitness-tracking, digital-identity protecting, waterproof smart ring? This stylish ring tracks your heart rate, sleep patterns, and active minutes throughout the day. Give the ring a few twists on your finger and it automatically syncs with the fitness tracking app on your phone. Then add in some security features to help protect your online identity--think waving your finger in front of a screen to access your online accounts or using your unique walking gait as a way to verify identity. Diamonds can't do that.

What could happen if something goes wrong?

The company seems to do a very good job with the security of this device. In fact, Motiv's data is so secure independent developers struggle to get access to their own data (see link below). We suppose it's always possible, if not likely, someone could knock you out cold while you're wearing this ring, then wave your hand in front of your computer to access your Amazon account and buy a bunch of stuff.
