MICA will have two versions and both of them will include a curved sapphire touchscreen display. One version of the smart bracelet will have a black watersnake strap with freshwater pearls and lapis. The other will have a white watersnake strap with tiger’s eye gems and obsidian, PC Magazine notes.

“We wanted something that felt luxurious and modern that could fit into the lives of many different women,” Humberto Leon, co-founder of Opening Ceremony, told USA Today while talking about MICA.

INTC shares were up 1% as of Thursday afternoon.
