A rubberized holder (or uh, rubberised if you’re a Brit) and magnetic clasp secures your phone inside, while the bifold structure converts to a stand for small-screen binge-watching.

A few years ago, you could spot someone wearing a big, black, rubber band-looking fitness tracker a mile away. I’m so happy that fashion has integrated its way very nicely when it comes to wearable tech, and I’m especially thankful for designers who are getting in the game now from Tori Burch to Swarovski.
