Smart rings are the latest in devices that use NFC technology to make wireless payments, unlock a mobile or open the car door. This is all you need to know. We are used to using a smartwatch as a wireless complement to, for example, pay in a store. However, the future seems to be in another wearable somewhat more discreet: the smart rings. Today we’re explaining how does smart ring works and naming some of them.
Ōura is a Finnish health technology company best known for the Oura Ring, a smart ring used to track sleep and physical activities. The smart ring works combining advanced sensor technology and a minimal design with an easy-to-use mobile app to deliver precise, personalized health insights straight from your body.
It has been validated by independent studies at UCSF, UC San Diego, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory, the US Army, the US Navy — and more research is still to come.
Ōura delivers a readout on your daily active calorie burn, and Ōura’s finger placement enables highly sensitive activity detection so you get credit for even subtle movements like household chores.
Day and night, Ōura helps you realize your potential through three simple scores: Readiness, Sleep, and Activity. While you’re awake the smart ring captures data that reflects your activity and movement. When you’re sleeping, Ōura captures meaningful data as nighttime is the best opportunity to get an accurate read on your overall health as your body is in a more consistent state.
