ProdigIO brings Italian luxe to statement smart bracelets

This limited edition line of smart jewellery tracks steps and keeps you safe Fluid, Plus and Contrarié are a trio of intelligent bracelets by the Italian fashion tech startup Wearable Italia. Founded in February 2016 by IT engineer and CEO Andrea Tomassini, the limited edition ProdigIO collection aims to blends hidden technology with Italian luxury.

“We chose to call this line ProdigIO because of its double meaning: on the one hand the adjective highlights the line’s beautiful and extraordinary dimension; on the other hand the digital side is evoked by the number 10, discreetly contained in the collection’s name, referring to the binary numerical system typical of computer language,” said Tomassini.

This is not Wearable Italia’s first project: “The first thing I built was a robot. I wanted to understand IoT and the possibilities that technology can offer.” A year later the entrepreneur moved on to creating smart bracelets and now runs a five person team which is responsible for building everything from the ground up. “Everyone knows, and understands, their role at Wearable Italia and this is important,” said Tomassini. “We all have the same goal, to build a product that respects Italy and technology”.
