It's no secret that the Oura ring is my #1 choice for self-quantification, due to a huge number of variables, including…
…the fact that it doesn't produce a cell-damaging WiFi and Bluetooth signal…
…the extreme sleep tracking accuracy that beats the pants off any other tracker on the market…
…the new Oura “team” dashboard that allows coaches to monitor an entire team or personal trainers to monitor all their clients…
And, as of today, I'm pleased to announce that the new Oura ring has arrived. Keep reading for the details on this beautiful new wearable that allows you to track body temperature, heart rate variability, calories, steps, respiration, extremely accurate sleep cycles and much, much more.
The new Oura ring is small (like a wedding band), beautiful and personal. It’s the world’s most advanced smart wearable that tracks your sleep and recovery. Here's what the Balance Diamond model looks like:
The new Oura ring builds on the success of the original Oura ring: but with a smaller form factor, better battery life and ever-evolving companion app and web dashboard. In a nutshell, the features include:
-Smart ring with up to one-week battery life
-Proprietary pulse waveform detection, body temperature sensor and 3D accelerometer and 3D gyroscope
-Advanced sleep tracking
-Chronotype detection (e.g. your based on your personalized sleep type) and Circadian alignment guidance
-Sleep improvement programs to make guided behavioral changes in a personalized way
-Water-resistant to minimum 50m (100m and 200m in testing)
The cover material of the new ring is titanium. The seamless inner molding is medical grade, non-allergenic material like in the first Oura ring. And yes, I wear mine for workouts such as barbell lifting, kettlebell swinging and pull-ups with no issues whatsoever.
The new Oura ring comes in three design collections with several color options for you to choose from: Balance (Black, Rose and Silver), Heritage (Black, Rose, Silver and Stealth) and Balance Diamond. Price points are $299, $399 and $999 for each of those models.
The New Oura App
With active users in over 50 countries and over a million nights & days tracked and billions of data points recorded in the Cloud, Oura is now also in a unique position to provide highly personalized guidance and help individuals improve their sleep, recover better and be ready for whatever they are aspiring for in their life.
The three Oura Scores (Sleep, Activity, and Readiness) continue to be in the heart of Oura's guidance on their new app. With the new ring, they're moving even further towards personalized insights, mining their database for unique findings and helping users do the right thing at the right time. Some feature highlights of the new app include a slew of much-requested features, including but not limited to::
-A redesigned interface with fresh visuals and a focus on both an actionable daily overview and long-term trends.
-Advanced sleep and recovery tracking: notes and tags, calendar view, comparing contributor trends to see correlations between different factors.
-More personalized messages: based on the user’s long-term data in the cloud
-Circadian alignment and chronotype detection: finding what bedtime and wake-up times lead to best sleep quality and readiness
-Tracking restful moments on-demand: including naps, meditation breathing or relaxation exercises and post-exercise recovery tracking
-A web-based dashboard for teams, coaches, and personal trainers
Together with the new Oura ring, Oura is also introducing a web-based dashboard for teams, coaches, personal trainers or research groups. This feature allows organizations and teams to utilize the power of Oura Cloud – their web-based dashboard for the data tracked with the Oura ring. For example, personal trainers, coaches, and doctors can invite their clients to their group and see an overview of their client's metrics in one place. All clients have to do is approve to share their data, wear the ring and sync it to the Oura app. The data is automatically synced to the Oura Cloud and the web-based dashboard for teams and groups.
Pretty nifty, eh?
