And finally… Click to pray
The Vatican has launched the Click to Pray eRosary which is a wearable technology bracelet featuring a crucifix interface which tracks the user’s worship.
The eRosary syncs with a smartphone app.
The tracker has been launched by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network and allows users to monitor the progress of each prayer and provides users with an audio prayer-guide through the app.
The rosary costs £99 to buy.
To activate it, the user must make the sign of the cross on the interface of the cross.
Once the device is activated, the user can choose from a selection of standard prayers or themed ones which are updated throughout the year in relation to religious holidays.
The app logs the user’s progress through the prayer and logs their prayer activity and allows them to join Click to Pray’s “social prayer platform.”
The rosary also has a bonus feature which tracks health data such as the user’s step count and calories.
The eRosary comes packaged in a box wrapped to look like a bible, with a decorated inner-page and bookmark ribbon. The charger also doubles as a display stand.
