Lycos: from 90s search engine to wearable device creator


Lycos is a name that only the elderly can know, a search engine that, before that Google outperformed the competition, it was used by a large number of users, but that is now only a vague memory.

However, the company is not dead, and after twenty years of silence, it is preparing to return to the market with two wearable devices: a classic smartband simply called “Band“, With sleep monitoring functions, pedometer and so on, and a ring,”Ring“, Mostly useful because of its chip NFC.

The two devices will be compatible with all smartphones on the market, with which they will interface through an app, Lycos Lifewhich will collect and process the data but at a price of $ 125 for the Band and $ 60 for the Ringthese certainly do not rank among the cheapest in the category, but they could have that extra something that would make them stand out from the crowd, what do you think?
