Sleep quality has a huge impact on your daily performance, well-being and your quality of life. OURA is a new finger wearable that is designed to help you get more restful sleep and help you recharge to perform better during the day.
The sleep profiles produced by ŌURA parallel the profiles produced by the gold standard of sleep laboratory instruments.
Seeking project funding on Kickstarter, OURA is already past its pledge goal and looks to ship its new wearable by November 2015. The OURA ring measures your heart rate, respiration rate, body temperature, and movement. By doing so, it can determine when you are asleep, and together with a smartphone app will visualize the data and identify patterns for you. During the day, OURA is a fitness tracker and will count your steps, distance travelled, estimated calorie burn and time spent sitting.
With the collection of all this data, the OURA app will make actionable recommendations to help you improve the quality of your sleep, as well as be aware of your bodies readiness for activities.
During the day, the ŌURA ring automatically measures all your physical activity and time spent sitting. The ring counts your daily steps and total distance traveled. It also estimates the calories burned per day. The app delivers actionable recommendations to adjust the intensity, duration and timing of your activities based on your readiness to perform. It also offers activity-related suggestions to help you get more restful sleep at night.
OURA has a built-in rechargeable 40 mAh battery that will last up to three days on one charge. It will fully recharge in under 60 minutes and is scratch and water proof. It will likely cost $299 once it goes into retail production. The early-bird $199 pledges are gone, but there are still some $229 spots open to people looking to get this product before full production. If your not one to wear watches or wristbands, then maybe the OURA ring is for you.
