The 3 Best Long Distance Bracelets For Friends And Lovers
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.
These words ring even truer for people who are in long-distance relationships or people who are away from the person they care about for an extended period of time. If this is something you are going through, then you definitely know how hard it is to be unable to reach out and touch the person you love whenever you want.
Even though regular calls and skyping often makes things a little easier, it is never enough. You will still miss that person even more after you hang up that call. In a perfect world, you would be able to call them and talk to them 24/7, and it would be like they never left.
Sadly, this is not possible. The strangest thing, though, is that sometimes all we truly need is to let them know that we are thinking about them and to have some way of knowing that they are thinking about us. Other times, we simply just want to have a symbolic part of them with us at all times.
Luckily, in these wonderful times that we live in, all this is possible. And all you need is a bracelet.
So if you are in a long-distance relationship, or if you have a friend or family that’s away from you for a long time, and you miss them terribly, here are three of the best long-distance bracelets to help you hold on until you meet them again.

The Bond Touch is a simple couple’s bracelet that works under one simple principle: When you touch it, your partner feels it, no matter where you are. It has an accompanying app that allows you to view your touch conversation history, replay past touches, follow your partner’s location, and to see whether your partner’s Bond Touch is almost running out of battery.
When you touch your Bond Touch, your partner’s bracelet lights up in a pre-selected color of your choice. It also vibrates to let them know that you are thinking about them.
The set-up process for the Bond Touch is simple. First, you have to make sure that you have a phone that is connected to the internet with Bluetooth on. You also need to make sure that your bracelet is fully charged. Then download and install the Bond Touch app, which is available for free on both the Play Store and the iOS app store.
The next thing you have to do is enter your phone number. The app will then prompt you to enter a confirmation number and your name. You will then have to choose a profile picture, although you can skip this step if you want.
Next, you will pick the color you want your partner’s bracelet to show. You can change this as many times as you want. Once this is done, you are finished setting up your Bond Touch and you can now connect it to your phone. It will be linked to your number, and your partner can connect with you by simply adding your number in their app. Be sure to connect with your partner in your app too.
And that’s all there is to it! When you touch your bracelet, your partner will feel it right away on theirs, no matter where in the world you both are.
You can also send an extra-special message to your partner by sending up to 10 taps as one message. This allows the two of you to come with interesting secret codes or unique rhythms that make the distance between you a little less rough.
The Bond Touch comes in pairs, with each bracelet packaged separately. Each package has one Bond Touch bracelet, once charger, set-up instructions, and one black TPU bracelet.
- It is very simple to use
- It functions anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection
- The vibrations you get are quite gentle and soothing, nothing like the rough jarring vibrations of a text message
- The batteries last very long, which allows the bracelets to go a whole day without needing any additional charge
- It is an interesting way of letting your partner know you are thinking about them
- It allows for various touch lengths and up to 10 taps in one message, which gives you the opportunity to create special unique codes that only you and your partner can feel and understand
- The app needs to constantly run in the background if you want to receive touches, and this can drain your phone battery
- It is not waterproof
- The bracelets can sometimes irritate the wrists when worn for a long time, so consider getting alternative or DIY bands if you can
- If your partner is not near their phone, the touches can be delayed
If you are looking for an interesting, sweet way to enrich your long-distance relationship, then the Bond Touch is definitely worth a shot. Although they will never replace the physical touch from the person you love, they sure do a lot more than a simple phone call.
The Hey Bracelet is an ABS plastic and Silicon connection bracelet by a company called House of Haptics, designed for people in long-distance relationships or people who have someone they care about that lives far away from them. It offers a solution to the need for staying connected that cannot be fulfilled by a mere phone call.
It comes in a black box with pretty standard packaging. Immediately you open the box, you will find the instructions on how to use the bracelets, and a set of two bracelets with their accompanying USB cables immediately underneath. You can purchase these bracelets as either one white and one black, two white, or two black variants.
The bracelets will fit quite snugly on most people’s arms without feeling loose or falling off. Once you put the bracelet on, you have to download the Hey Bracelet app for Android or Apple phones.
These are the only operating systems that Hey supports, so if you have a Windows phone or anything different, you will, unfortunately, be unable to use it. It is also important to mention that the Hey app only works on Android 4.4 and up and iOS 9 and up.
Once your app is downloaded, you will need to create your user profile, then sync the app with each bracelet. It is a good idea to do this from separate rooms because it is pretty easy to get the connections mixed up between the two bracelets. So as you sync your app to the bracelets, make sure you are connected to your own bracelet first before connecting to your partner’s.
The idea behind Hey Bracelets is pretty simple. Wherever you are in the world, if you are thinking about the other person, simply touch your bracelet and it automatically sends the touch to your partner.
The Hey app is also pretty neat. It gives a complete history of all your touches, plus a map showing where the touches were sent from. The app is what allows for the touches to be sent and received from anywhere in the world. However, you both need your smartphones to have internet connections and to be connected to the bracelet via Bluetooth.
To charge a Hey Bracelet fully, you will need about 2 hours. It has a battery life of 3 days when inactive, and about 1 to 2 days when in use. On average, the Hey Bracelet’s Bluetooth range is about 5 meters from your phone, although this distance depends on the number of obstacles between you and your phone.
- The bracelets have a really modern design that looks stylish on both men and women
- It doesn’t feel heavy on the wrist, so you will hardly notice that it is there unless your partner alerts you
- It is completely weatherproof and waterproof.
- For it to work, both your phones need to have an internet connection with Bluetooth turned on. This may not always be possible
- It has very limited customization options. All you get is either black or white
- To produce the squeeze, you’ll hear an audible motor sound that takes away from the experience a little bit. It can actually be rather annoying if you are in a quiet room
Everyone wants to be close to the person they love. But sometimes, that is simply just not possible. When it is impossible to hold that special someone, simply reach out to your Hey Bracelet and send them a special touch to let them know you are thinking about them.
With the ability to mimic human touch, you will be able to bridge the distance between your hearts from anywhere in the world.
Sometimes, no matter how much you miss the person you care about, there really isn’t much you can do apart from hold on patiently and wait for the time you will meet again.
It may take weeks, months, or even years, but the love and affection you feel for them should be enough to take you through it all. If you want to keep them even closer, and perhaps let them know that you are thinking about them every once in a while, one of these three bracelets ought to do the trick.
