If your ID wristband isn't a SMART ID Wristband then it's...erm... not so smart. Check out the very latest SMARTPHONE readable identity wristbands from You-iD.me.
ID wristbands have improved in terms of the amount of information they can hold but how do they work and what are the options? Here is a quick overview of the options with links to further information on each.
SMART ID EMERGENCY IDENTITY WRISTBANDS
SMART ID means the bracelet has an embedded RFID tag which carries all the wearer's vital information. It allows the tag to be read by most smartphones which is good news in the event of an emergency since most people own a smart device now.
Because your info is stored electronically it takes almost no space, so you can include all the really important things that you would want to say to a paramedic if you were able to. No more limited space with tiny illegible handwriting on a little ID card - now you really can include it all - there is no limit to what can be held.
Pros: It's fast! Your information is displayed in seconds. Works with most smartphones
Cons: Not currently compatible with Apple iphone due to their NFC controller being 'locked down' (Boooo Apple!)

CODED ID EMERGENCY IDENTITY BRACELETS
CODED ID means that the ID card enclosed inside the wristband has a unique code that emergency services may use to access the wearer's vital information. They may use a Smartphone or a computer (desktop, laptop or tablet) to access your emergency identity profile.
Pros: Works with every smartphone on the planet with an internet connection.
Cons: The service has a small monthly charge
