Vatican launches £85 ‘click to pray’ wearable rosary

Hoping to appeal to tech-obsessed young people, the Vatican has launched a new “click to pray” rosary bracelet.

The bracelet, called eRosary, includes 10 black agate and hematite rosary beads, as well as a silver “smart cross”.

the website explains: “Connecting tradition with modernism through simple lines and curves – this is our design philosophy.

“Black agate and hematite beads are combined with a finely finished cross, symbolizing eternal human faith.”






The eRosary wristband has a “smart cross” on it

The bracelet is activated by making the sign of the cross and syncs with an accompanying app where users can choose to pray the standard rosary, a contemplative rosary or a thematic rosary.

The app also contains various prayers and songs and can be used to track progress.

Besides praying, the bracelet can also be used to track your health data.

The website added: “In addition to daily prayer, the device also records and provides your health data, so you are encouraged to have a better lifestyle.”

The bracelet is on sale now and costs £85.

This isn’t the first time the Catholic Church has turned to technology.

Last year, a game called JC Go which uses the same technology as Pokemon Go was released, in which players were tasked with catching Saints!
