Bluetooth LE Notification Accessory Suggestions?

So my wife says she's tired of missing calls/texts while her phone is in her purse - my suggestions to just turn up the notification volume and/or check more often aren't working, so aside from waiting for the Apple Watch (she has already said she doesn't want one), are there any good accessories out there (like bracelets) that will ring/vibrate when a call or SMS is received?

I saw that the Fitbit Force had that feature, but it's been recalled. The Vybe bracelet seems to fit the bill, but it a bit bulky and vaporware(?).

It'd be ideal if it could do the whole fitness tracking thing too -- the Jawbone UP24 would be perfect, except it doesn't seem to do call/SMS notifications.

So, anybody know of a product that:
- Vibrates and/or rings on call/SMS
- bracelet form-factor
- relatively lightweight and thin
- bluetooth LE
- (optional) fitness tracking (steps/sleep)
