If you’re the kind of person who’s got a note app on their phone filled with ramblings, gibberish and a list of stuff you’ll never get round to watching on Netflix, then Senstone is the smart jewelry for you.
Senstone records voice memos and translates them into text then organises them for you in an app. It can be worn as a bracelet or necklace, and is designed to blend in about your person. The LED indicates it’s recording, but other than that there are no giveaway signs that there’s any technology in this at all.
The app is well-designed and lets you edit translated text in case there are some errors. You can see the location of where you took a note, and you can play back the recording if you want to hear it again. What’s neat is that you can also use hashtags to organize your memos — just say hashtag and follow it with a single-word tag. You’ll then be able to easily search for your notes via hashtag in the app.
The battery level is indicated on the app, and the company claims it can provide about four days of average use. After making a handful of recordings in two days, our Senstone only went down 10 percent — so it really depends on how many recordings you make. The device rests on a dock to wirelessly charge.
