Oura Ring Personal Health Tracker
What's your Oura? Welp, according to the personal health tracker Oura Ring, it's tired, inactive, and slow to recover. Oh boy, another gadget to tell you you're doing life all wrong!
Or right, if you're health-conscious and fit, you work out, you get your beauty sleep every night - basically if you're an Oura Ring brown-noser like 90% of the people who will care to own a wearable packed with sensors that provide constant insights into their health.
Aside from its placement on your finger rather than your wrist, I'm not sure what makes the Oura Ring that much different or better than other health and fitness trackers. Well, I guess that's it - at least according to Oura. Wearing the device on your finger gives its LED sensors, NTC body temperature sensor, 3D accelerometer, and gyroscope access to the arteries, skin, and movement in your fingers to provide more accurate readings on heart rate, body temperature, and subtle movement during activities. Its infrared light sensors reach deeper than the green LED lights other wearables use, and its NTC temperature sensors take measurements directly from your skin rather than the external environment.
Worn the recommended 24/7 the Oura Ring takes constant measurements and feeds them into a paired app to produce 3 scores: Readiness; Sleep; and Activity. During the day the ring tracks activity / inactivity levels, calories burned, steps, and naps. At night you'll get resting heart rate, heart rate variability, respiratory rate, body temperature, light / deep / REM sleep, nighttime movement, and sleep timing and quality readouts.
Made of titanium with a PVD coating, the Oura Ring weighs just 4 to 6 grams, depending on ring size, and measures 7.9mm wide.
