You can now get a BBF bracelet that buzzes when your friend is thinking about you

It's an unfortunate reality of life that sometimes you and your bestie end up living hundreds of miles away from each other. But now that we live in the age of technology, it's easier than ever before to keep in touch with new, innovative methods being developed all the time.

Case in point, this BBF bracelet that buzzes when your best friend is thinking about you.

To see the bracelet in action, check out the video below: 

It's the perfect gift if, like me, when times are tough, you have to get on a plane to get a much-needed hug from your bestie, then suffer the heartache of going home without them - no matter how much you want to sneak them in your suitcase.

Manufactured by Uncommon Goods, the bracelets are activated using your phone's Bluetooth and retail for $98 (£74.47) for the set.

The product description on the website reads:

"They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, but it sure isn't easy. Whether you're often miles apart or just spending the day in different locations, these waterproof silicone bracelets can keep you feeling close.

"Download the app that connects the set and tap your bracelet to send a Bond TouchTM to your loved one. Theirs will light up and vibrate, so they’ll know you're thinking about them. Want to send an extra-special note? You can send up to 10 taps in one message, making it easy to incorporate unique rhythms or create your own secret code.

"The set of two makes dealing with that distance a little less rough, and they’re rechargeable, so wearing them every day is easy, too-even in the shower or pool: they’re waterproof. Optional additional bands available in Twilight Blue, Emerald Green, Ghost White, and Pink Sand."

So if this sounds like exactly what you and your BBF need to keep your connection strong, simply head over to the Uncommon Goods website.
