The sleep tracker monitors REM sleep, body temperature, heart rate, and more. It uses that data to provide advice on how to improve sleep habits and feel more rested.
The long-term effects of poor sleep can put a real strain on physical and mental health. Sleep deprivation is linked to mood issues, weight gain, trouble concentrating, weakened immune system, and more. Yet it’s something many people often don’t prioritise in their busy lives.
The Oura ring is a flat-banned finger ring with multiple sensors that track sleep. The focus is on sleep, given its importance. The smart tech provides a long list of readings that are transmitted to the Android or iOS mobile app. The ring records when you’re in a light, REM, or deep sleep. It also tracks heart rate, body temperature, and activity such as steps. It’s made from titanium making it light, and a single charge lasts for seven days.
The mobile app allows the input of other variables, such as exercise or caffeine consumption so users can monitor the impact of this on sleep too. All this data on sleep patterns and how they change over time is used by Oura to provide insights that will help guide people to rest better so they can have better wellbeing.
