The cool part about “Always Together” is that it warns you if you’re too far away from your phone, so you’ll be less likely to leave it behind.Here’s how it works: If you’re wearing the jacket and your phone isn’t nearby, “Always Together” will send a notification ASAP to your phone. The sleeve tag on the jacket will also blink and vibrate, so you’ll know right away if your phone is not physically on you.Light-up area of the jacket’s sleeve (Photo Credit: Levi’s/YouTube)If you already have the jacket, you can set up “Always Together” in a few minutes.
