Jewellery brand Swarovski has teamed up with American sports-tech brand Misfit on its first range of fitness bands.

Unlike typical fitness bands which have a digital display, the Swarovski Activity Tracking Jewellery features a clear Activity crystal with an LED display.

It uses a coin cell battery which can last for six months and is water-resistant.

Wear the Activity crystal with a sports band or the Swarovski Slake bracelet, which comes in nine colours such as white, pink and blue.

Users can set and track their fitness goals using the Link app, which can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play store.

The Activity crystal can also be used to control the music or camera function on a smartphone.

The Swarovski Activity Tracking Jewellery set - comprising the Activity crystal, sports band and Slake bracelet - costs $280.

A Slake bracelet without the Activity crystal costs $150.

Available at all Swarovski boutiques.


A new South Korean hair salon bringing styles from the posh Gangnam district in Seoul has opened in Orchard Road.

Principal director and celebrity hair stylist Gunhee, 32, leads the team at Bella K-Beauty House (above).

Gunhee, who goes by only his first name, has worked with K-pop idols such as 4Minute, Akdong Musician, JYJ and Super Junior.

He has also worked with the South Korean versions of magazines such as GQ, Esquire and Vogue.

The stylist will split his time between South Korea, where he owns two salons in Gangnam, and Singapore.

Bella K-Beauty House, founded by former South Korean model Vivian Danbi Yu, provides a full list of hair services, including cuts, perms and treatments.

Prices range from $148 for a haircut to $718 for a Bella Signature Perm for long hair.

As part of its opening celebrations, the salon is giving a 20 per cent discount on all services until May 31.

Bella K-Beauty House is located at 1 Nassim Road, 01-04, and is open daily from 10.30am to 8.30pm.

To make an appointment, call 6734-3724 or text 8127-7904.
