Even in 2015, on the site Kickstarter to collect money for quite an interesting device — the activity tracker in the form of a ring. It was called Oura, stood out for its features, form factor and material (Zirconia ceramic).
The only problem is that the rings carry a small number of people, and those who never were, are unlikely to want to start with this decision. At least for the reason that in the home large ring is elementary to get in the way.
Guys, apparently, realized this and introduced Oura Ring is almost the same, but now in the form of a ring. In comparison with the first version of the novelty is significantly more compact and potentially more interesting for buyers. Note that the first information about the device appeared a long time ago, but only now the company began taking pre-orders.
Zirconia ceramics’ve replaced the titanium with a special coating. As in the case of the first model, the design is quite concise. Except for $ 1,000 a version with five diamonds with a total weight of 0.025 CT.
What can Oura Ring? The creators have positioned the company as a sleep tracker. And in this case, the ring is able not only to track the phases of sleep, and many other devices, but also to follow circadian rhythms of a particular user to generate tips.
Graphics-based user data with heart rate sensor and other information ON the device dictates the circadian rhythms of the owner. And then trying to tell him when to go to sleep, when to Wake up and so on.
Besides the ability to track the pulse, the ring is able to determine the RR-intervals and heart rate variability. It also, like regular fitness trackers, able to track physical activity, but the ability to determine the temperature of the body is already quite unique for this segment.
There is protection from water. The ring supposedly can dive to a depth of 100 meters, but it is unlikely that someone will double-check it. The battery capacity is enough for weeks of battery life, and charging takes about 80 minutes.
There is a choice of three versions. The basic Balance is $ 300 and is available in steel, black or copper (on the website it is called pink) colors. For the same money available, and the version of Heritage, a slightly different form, as well as the fact that it available yet and Matt black. Well, for 1000, as already mentioned, you can buy a version with the stones, but it is only available in steel color. It is also worth noting that some colors will have to pay.
Buy ruby Ring will be available in April and pre-order now.
