Meet the new wellness 'Oura' smart-ring that monitors your sleep
Meet Oura – a revolutionary new piece of wearable tech in the from of a ring, that acts a full wellness computer that helps you sleep and perform better. The ring app has already exceeded its $100,000 target on Kickstarter with more than 30 days to go, by almost double.
As you sleep and go about your daily activities, the ring wirelessly collects data such as your heart-rate, your time asleep and the different stages of sleep, analysing the quality of your rest and recovery. This enables you to learn how your lifestyle choices affect your sleep, and how the quality of your sleep affects your ability to perform.
The idea behind gathering this information, say the creators of the new gadget, is that by understanding how well you slept and recharged, you can determine your readiness to perform and plan and adjust your daily activities accordingly for the ultimate balance.
