With the boom of smart watches like the Samsung Gear and soon Apple Watch, it isn’t surprising that a Tech giant like Intel has designed a fashion forward version exclusively for women. Up until now, smart watches have lacked in sophisticated feminine style.xex2czjasv58hh1jkhis

Intel will be ready to announce a new smart bracelet at the upcoming Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show during New York’s Fashion Week, the company said Wednesday.

Dubbed “MICA,” or “My Intelligent Communication Accessory,” this “feminine fashion accessory with communications capabilities” is both decorated in jewels and digitally enhanced, the product of a “landmark” joint effort between Intel and fashion house Opening Ceremony, the chip giant said.

MICA will be available at select Barneys stores and Opening Ceremony’s worldwide retail locations in time for the holiday season, Intel said.

“As a feminine accessory blending seamlessly into everyday life, MICA ushers in a new era converging fashion and technology by integrating a woman’s luxury accessory with technology in order to complement and enhance a woman’s work and social life,” Intel said in a statement.

There wasn’t much information on the functionality of the bracelet available, but Intel said it will allow women “to stay connected via SMS messages, meeting alerts, and general notifications delivered directly to the wrist, with additional features and functionalities to be revealed at a later date.”

MICA, which features a curved sapphire glass touchscreen display, per Intel, will come in two versions—one with a strap of black watersnake skin and embellished with Chinese freshwater pearls and Malagasy lapis, while the other has a band made of white watersnake skin and is adorned with tiger’s eye gems from South Africa and Russian obsidian.

Intel didn’t say much about the specs concerning the circuitry inside MICA, but one assumes it will have Intel’s tiny, 32-bit, single-core Quark processor under it’s glam shell. Intel introduced Quark as a more pared-down, power-conserving version of its low-power Atom processor line a year ago, as part of the company’s ongoing effort to compete with ARM in the thriving Internet of Things (IoT) market for wearable technology.
