(Pocket-lint) – The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network recently revealed a smart rosary bracelet known as the Click to Pray eRosary which is designed to help you pray.
This new device is a smart wearable accessory that is worn like a bracelet and is intended to help young people learn to pray. The Vatican is believed to be using it to help the church reach out to tech-savvy millennials and Gen Z.
The eRosary bracelet consists of 10 consecutive black agate and hematite rosaries combined with a smart cross that stores and transmits data. It is activated by making the sign of the cross and once users do so they can then choose to pray the standard rosary, a contemplative rosary or a thematic rosary.
This technology is designed to bring together the spiritual tradition of the church with modern technology as well as to help people learn to pray for peace or contemplate the gospel.
As you’d expect from an app-connected smart device, this wristband will also track and show your progress throughout the year. This app and its accompanying tracker are also said to connect users around the world by bringing together thousands of people to pray every day.
Click to pray eRosary is available to purchase for €99/$110/£85.
