The Eclipse is one of 3 new rings from NFC Ring. Functionally, it's the exact same as the others however each has its own color and design. Other rings in this set are the Horizon (black band with black on one side, grey on the other) and the Helios (white band with black on one side and grey on the other).
This ring acts like portable, pre-programmable NFC chips which can be used to share links, unlock doors, launch apps or anything else a NFC chip can do.

Measuring 8mm wide and 2.3mm thick, the Eclipse isn't much bigger than a regular ring.
Pro 1cm activation distance
The NFC chip used in the Eclipse is NTAG216, which can be read at a distance up to 1cm. This ensures that even low power readers, or readers inside a case (such as a phone) will still be able to read the ring.
Pro 2 X 888 bytes of storage
The Eclipse uses two NFC tags - one on the inside and one on the outside. Each chip can store 888 bytes - enough for a URL or contact information. There is also enough storage to contain an unlock code, so they can also unlock smart door locks if they support NFC unlocking.
Con No notification support
The Eclipse doesn't sync to your phone at all, and it lacks a screen as well. It won't show the time, or any notifications.
