eBay has decided to make wearable tech more fashionable by teaming up with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to create a bracelet that will charge your iPhone 4/4S and transfer data from one device to another. The online retail giant more specifically called on the talents of five designers: Mara Hoffman, Michael Bastian, Milly, Rachel Zoe and Shipley & Halmos.

Each bracelet also comes with an Apple adapter for the iPhone 5 and is compatible with iPods, Android smartphones and BlackBerry devices that use a micro USB connector. While it might seem pretty similar in nature to the upcoming iWatch, there are no official connections.

If the limited-edition piece of wearable tech is something you could see adorning your wrist, then be sure to head over to eBay.com/holidaycollective from November 11th where you can pick up one of the bracelets for $25.
