Linou’s new sustainable wearables look amazing

We’ve just found another wearable collection that looks amazing. Linou has unveiled its new watch and necklace collection that fuses fashion and function so well you wouldn’t know it was a piece of technology at all looking at it.

Linou’s collection includes the Wood Tech Watch and the Notification Necklace. Crafted from timber, bamboo, sandalwood and walnut, this range looks so different compared to the metallic wearable devices we’ve seen in the past. Using these materials also means Linou is the first line of sustainable wearable jewellery.

The Wood Tech Watch has a traditional circular face and band with the alert system veiled in the clasp, while the Notification Necklace features a wooden triangle design with the alert system built into the centre.

Both products connect through Bluetooth with your iPhone or Android, allowing you to set a custom colour and vibration alert for app notifications, messages, and phone reminders using the Linou app.

Linou’s wearable collection is available to buy on Kickstarter, with the Wood Tech Watch retailing at $199 AUD and the Notification Necklace $99 AUD.
