The Vatican is probably the last governing body you’d expect to launch a smart gadget, but that’s exactly what they have done with the “Click to Pray eRosary.” Think of it as a fitness tracker, but with added religious functions, complete with six-axis inertial sensing, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, IP67 water / dust resistance, wireless charging, a 15mAh lithium-ion battery, 10 black agate beads and 11 hematite beads.

At $110, this device tracks y our progress and logs each rosary that is completed. The bracelet can be synced to its companion app “Click to Pray”, which is available on both iOS and Android platforms. This app features an audio guide, videos, and images, as well as “personalized content about the praying of the Rosary.” Users can select from three modes of prayer: standard rosary, a contemplative rosary or thematic ones that are updated throughout the year in accordance with religious occasions as well as holidays.
Once the prayer begins, the smart rosary shows the user’s progress throughout the different mysteries and keeps track of each rosary completed,” said Vatican News.
