A simple wearable Bluetooth LE device that connects to smartphones.

I have an idea for a simple wearable Bluetooth LE device that connects to smartphones and alerts users when they receive texts, calls, emails, etc. The device would be a simple accessory i.e. a bracelet that can be worn to alert users with vibration and/or lights in any situation where they either cannot or would not want to pull out their phone. A few examples of where this device would be useful include meetings, clubs, bars, restaurants, and events. There would be a simple mobile app where users can control The smartwatch market is already getting saturated, but I think there is a demand for simpler and cheaper devices. Not everyone wants to pay that chunk of cash for a smartwatch, and a lot of them aren't particulary attractive or fashionable. This device appeals to the consumer who wants to have a notification device, but doesn't want to pay that chunk of cash or wear something that looks so techy.
