TBH, the last step seems to be wasted time, why swipe if you use NFC? it's not that easy to accidentally do a read.
I guess it's because that 'Trusted Devices' includes Bluetooth devices, which makes sense if you have that device around, then you would only have to do wake and swipe.
@imscuba , sorry, I must have missed this post - thanks for reminding me, I had completely forgotten about this.
End results were all bad, with the removal of the comfort fit resulting in a much weaker ring and displacement of the inlay.
In order to fit the inlay in that portion of the ring is significantly thinner than a normal piece of jewellery would be.
So no, on both smaller and larger.

If you send me a private message we can sort something out with a QA fail ring in return for sharing your work on here.
Sadly we can't add new vouchers for free rings any more, that window of opportunity came and went.
We decided that as a company we need to draw a line under this and move forward so we can focus on the future. Apologies if you were affected negatively but imho we did everything we could to make it right and went way beyond what was expected of our service.
Customer service is a tricky thing where you want to do everything you can but you can't just give your company away and I feel like we behaved appropriately and have learned from it :)
Thanks for the support and apologies again that we can't take this any further.
Re: Broken NFC ring (pictures)
I bought my ring from MCLear Ltda through Amazon.com in August 2016. I used daily for 13 months and one part (Antenna suppose) got lost. The ring stopped working 2 weeks before the final break.
Skip to the end. He's goin real slow. It will read the ring as soon as you place it in the read spot. So you brush to wake it, immediately press ring and bamn - it operates. Under a second in my tests.
I did configure mine, prior to switching to smart lock, to use my normal swipe pattern plus unlock nfc. Having removed all my registered rings leaving just the pin unlock in the nfc unlock I then had pattern + nfc ring password.
