Oura’s Smart Ring just got a third version with new sensors and features. The most notable ones are the continuous heart tracking throughout the day thanks to the new optical heart rate sensor. The previous model only tracked your heart rate at night when you sleep. A monthly subscription plan for $6.99 is also available but those who pre-order will get six months for free.
The subscription, isn’t mandatory, but provides daily insights, personalized recommendations, and educational videos and audio.
The ring now employs seven health-tracking sensors including blood oxygen, but that will only be available in 2022. Interestingly enough, the company claims that it can predict women’s cycles 30 days in advance using algorithms and body temperature readings. It will notify you six days before the period starts and will learn from the users’ own biological changes, hence becoming more accurate.
The Oura Smart Ring is made of titanium and can go up to 100 meters under water and weighs between 4 and 6 grams, depending on the size. Even with all the tracking, the battery should last you between 4 and 7 days, depending on whether the continuous heart rate monitoring is enabled or not.
The ring will be available on November 15 with pre-orders already opened and the price is $299. Keep in mind that not all features will be available at launch and some of them will come later for Android users.
