One of the dorkiestApple Watch features is the ability to send your heartbeat to another Apple Watch user in real time.

Now a company called TheTouch has taken that dorktastic feature to a new level with the HB Ring, which essentially does the same thing.

The smart rings let two people send each other their heartbeats with a simple tap on the device's exterior.

Touted as the "most sophisticated ring in the world," the HB Ring connects to smartphones with an app (for iOS and Android) via Bluetooth and has 14 hours of battery life for active use and 160 hours of stand-by time.

An HB Ring must be connected to a phone with a data connection in order to receive the pulse over the internet.

There are six sizes available (16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21mm) and though the company says they're thin, its own comparison shows just how much bulkier they are compared to a common wedding ring:

The box the ring comes in doubles as a wireless charger.

The best part: One version of the rings comes in real 18K rose gold with sapphire crystal unibody housing. There are also versions that come in rose gold or jet black, but they're not made with real gold.

The worst part: They're only sold in pairs (obviously) and are pricey. The 18K rose gold HB Rings cost $2,990 for a pair and ship in November. The regular non-real gold rings cost $599 for a pair and ship in "early 2017." All models are available for pre-order from the company's website.

Ehh, I think I'll stick with an Apple Watch.
