Wearable smart Device: Click To Pray eRosary

As a part of the “Extraordinary Missionary Month” of October, the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network launched the “Click To Pray eRosary” at a press conference in the Vatican. The eRosary, that can be worn as a bracelet, is an interactive, smart wearable device that serves as a tool for learning how to pray the rosary for peace in the world.

It is activated by making the sign of the cross and synchronized with a free app of the same name, which allows access to an audio guide, exclusive images and personalized content about the praying of the Rosary. Aimed at the peripheral frontiers of the digital world where young people dwell, the “Click To Pray eRosary” is meant to be a technology-based teaching tool to help young people pray the Rosary for peace and to contemplate the Gospel, bringing together the best of the Church’s spiritual tradition and the latest advances of the technological world.

The device consists of ten consecutive black agate and hematite rosary beads, and of a smart cross which stores all data connected to the app. When activated, the user can choose to either pray the standard rosary, a contemplative Rosary and different kinds of thematic rosaries. The latter will be updated every year. Once the prayer begins, the smart rosary shows the user’s progress throughout the different mysteries and keeps track of each rosary completed.
GadgeTek Inc. (GTI), a tech company dedicated to innovative lifestyle gadgets with operations spanning five continents around the globe, was responsible for the technological design of the wearable device. More information is available at the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network.
