The team at Linou have created a collection of wearable technology, and along with their functional applications they also sport a bit of character.

The new designs include a watch and necklace that more resemble pieces of art, with their wooden forms and organic feel. The products just launched on Kickstarter, and the company claims to be breaking ground in this niche in the industry as the first collection of wearable technology that is also sustainably produced.

The Wood Tech Watch and the Notification Necklace are said to be unlike other wearable tech products, as these are made with sustainably minded materials. Most use plastics in their design but these pieces are made with natural woods, including walnut, timber, bamboo and sandalwood.

For those who want to stay in touch without being tethered to all of their various gadgets and screens, they can wirelessly connect with their iPhone and Android.

The look is simple. The Wood Tech Watch resembles a conventional watch style, and has the alert system concealed in the clasp area.

The Notification Necklace is a neat triangle shaped piece and the alert system is ingrained in the center.

The jewelry can also change color and alert wearers to notifications for apps, messages and reminders via the Linou app.

The price of having a stylish reminder to adorn? The Wood Tech Watch will set users back nearly $200.00 U.S. and the Notification Necklace goes for almost $100.00 U.S.
