RAPAPORT...  LYCOS Life will launch an initial phase of wearable technology in the form of a wrist band and ring on June 8. The products are described as  “Mission Control” for the wrist with the capability of sensing the individuals’ everyday patterns and transfer that information securely and wirelessly to a phone via Bluetooth and its Tap to Transfer (T2T) communication protocol. Their wearable devices will also allow users to automatically monitor activity such as  sleep, heart rate, incoming calls and notifications from their phone completely hands-free.

“The most valuable commodity in life is time and this technology helps LYCOS Life users maximize their time by making smarter and more informed decisions using the data they receive from LYCOS Life,” said Brad Cohen, the president and chief strategy officer of LYCOS.

Suresh Reddy, the CEO of LYCOS, said, "We have been living and learning the Internet for the past 20 years, now the Internet is starting to learn us. Originally, what LYCOS set out to solve was simplifying and making searching on the Internet more productive.  As we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year, LYCOS is solving a new problem by simplifying your digital life.”

Reddy said LYCOS has also developed software that can learn who you are, what you prefer and what you do based on your own patterns and behaviors.  “All of this is done securely by allowing you to control your own personal data and never sharing this information,” he said.  

The company's "Personal Security Manager" enables access to data and apps without passwords; T2T capability delivers private information with a tap of the ring and an activity tracker allows users to  monitor steps, calories burned, speed and heart rate.
