Ring Button

Imogen says she prefers the larger button which has a housing of about 11.5 x 11.5 x 3.5 mm and the button itself only barely protrudes from the casing and is a circular button of about 6.5mm diameter.

Right hand button ring. The ring is so tight that it is affecting the sensor input of sensor #7, the top knuckle of the index finger.

Left hand button ring. The ring is not as tight and has no visible affect on sensor input.
