Between managing our inboxes by day and feverishly scrolling through our social media feeds by night, technology not only consumes most of our waking hours, but rudely encroaches on our sleeping hours. Fortunately, the team at ŌURA has developed an innovative and fashionable wearable technology that doesn’t steal our shut-eye, but actually improves it. Their eponymous ŌURA wearable redefines beauty sleep with a stylish, ring-sized wellness computer designed to give you a more restful night’s sleep and help you perform better.
When you go to sleep , the ŌURA analyzes the quality of your rest and recovery by measuring your heart and respiration rate, body temperature and movement. While you are awake, the ŌURA monitors the duration and intensity of your activities, as well as time spent sitting. The ŌURA app then integrates and visualizes this data to give you personalized recommendations for optimizing your sleep activity and performance, such as by adjusting the intensity and duration of your daily activities. The ŌURA leverages years of scientific research and proprietary algorithms to provide laboratory-level accuracy unmatched by other wearables.
Unlike countless wearables that sacrifice form for function and appear too rugged and bulky for everyday wear, the ŌURA is bound to be the envy of fashionistas and techies alike. Its powerful functionality is neatly hidden in an elegant and ergonomic ring that complements any outfit, whether casual or formal. The ŌURA is made with a sleek and smooth ceramic compound that comes in either a glossy or matte finish. And because the ŌURA is scratch proof, waterproof, allergen-free and comfortable enough to be worn all day and night, you can take it with you anywhere, whether you’re lounging in your apartment or fighting off yawns at the office.
The visual elegance of the ŌURA is matched by its effortless operation. The ŌURA requires no user actions besides wearing and charging it. You don’t even have to notify or turn on the ring to signal that you’re ready to turn in. Simply put the ring on; the ŌURA can sense when you are sleeping, awake, active or sitting, and will upload data to your phone automatically. If your phone is not available, the ŌURA can still collect and store data for up to three weeks, as long as you continue to wear and charge it.
If you think this fashion-forward wearable has a great ring to it, you can support the team at ŌURA by checking out the Kickstarter campaign. You can pledge $5 or more to receive updates about ŌURA, or $199 to receive an ŌURA ring in glossy black or white.
