Jodi chats with Carine Carmy from Shapeways on fashion, fitness and the inspiration for Bytten

Jodi Slater is no tech novice. She started her career as a programmer, including some work on the original movie Tron, helped design the user interface for the first wireless Palm Pilot, and has since advised countless companies on user experience and new media.

The very talented Slater is now turning her attention to her fitness tracker, an accessory that she feels could use a facelift. Her new adventure, Bytten, sits at the intersection of fashion and technology and includes a line of beautiful 3D printed accessories for Jawbone & Fitbit. After reading this Q&A, we advise you to #getbytten.

Welcome to bytten! We hope to become your new favorite place to discover and shop for products that are defining the future of fashion and fitness. And really what we hope is that by having the ability to rock your Fitbit Flex and Jawbone UP all the time we will be helping you make fitness and health a more present and beautiful part of your life. 

We are still working on a few features (e.g., international shipping for our friends all over the world!), but we heard your cry to #getbytten and we didn't want to make you wait any longer. So, you can shop - on one condition - you need to tell us if you encounter weird stuff. Send us an email to and we will get right on it. 

happy shopping! jodi & team bytten

a word from Lucas

Hello all fitness and fashion aficionados,

I started making jewelry in the beginning of 2012. After a friend told me about 3D printing and how easy it is to use Sketchup and to create beautiful products, I began to experiment with some design techniques I learned from YouTube tutorials. Soon, I had a 3D model of the first LucasPlus ring in my mind. After receiving my Plus Ring in silver I was instantly addicted—seeing the 3D model on my computer screen come to life was priceless. And so the jewelry journey began, and with more practice came a larger LucasPlus Jewelry collection.

I was then approached by Jodi Slater, who had an incredible idea to use 3D printing technology to bring fashionable accessories to fitness trackers. Being a fellow fashionista/geek myself, I was instantly attracted to the idea of collaborating with Jodi to create jewelry that would complement the Fitbit Flex and Jawbone UP. 

The launch of these first two models is only the beginning. I hope to continue bringing you all stylish accessories for your fitness trackers as long as my creative juices keep flowing!

So here's to bytten, where fitness meets fashion.
