Billed as "the world's first wellness ring", the Oura ring is a piece of aesthetically pleasing finger jewelry that is equipped with a sleep and activity monitor. The embedding of these monitors into a ring allows for users to take full advantage of the technology without feeling self-conscious about using the technology.
The Oura ring was developed by Finnish industrial designer Harri Koskinen in collaboration with Oura's co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Kari Kivela. Based on over three decades of research and development by various Finnish wellness technology companies, the purpose of the Oura is to keep track of sleep, relaxation, activity and recovery using a simple stand-alone computer.
Seeing as how this ring is able to perform functions that normally require several separate devices, it's an undeniable gamechanger.
