I don't think the bracelets that are so popular right now are supposed to have anything to do with Mala's. It would be like comparing someone wearing a chain with a cross on it to rosary beads. To me they are just bracelets. Actually most people don't even know what Malas are so I don't think they connect them. I have seen Buddha like statues in Japanese restaurants and also Chinese restaurants. These don't offend me because I just presume they are part of the culture of Japanese and Chinese people and they are not using them in a disrespectful way. They may actually be using them because they want a Buddha near them in their work place. Anyway, this is just me and how I think. No disrespect meant to Mala's or statues of Buddha.
