RingConn: Oura Ring 3 competitor lands on Indiegogo for US$149
RingConn is now selling its first Smart Ring on Indiegogo, having introduced the device earlier this month. As we discussed at the time, the RingConn is lightweight and can track numerous health metrics, including Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and sleep quality. In short, RingConn promises its Smart Ring to deliver more features than the Oura Ring 3 while also being significantly cheaper to boot.
The RingConn starts at US$149 on Indiegogo, although the company stresses that the Smart Ring will eventually rise to US$249 after the crowdfunding campaign ends. Additionally, each RingConn comes with a lifetime subscription service unlike the Ring 3, for which Oura charges a monthly fee. As the screenshot below boasts, the RingConn also offers 24/7 blood oxygen, heart rate, HRV and stress-level monitoring, along with ‘basic health tracking’.
Moreover, the RingConn is IP68 certified and should last up to 7 days between charges. The company claims that the bundled charging case should provide up to 18 full charges, too. Currently, the RingConn is orderable in three colours, shown above. While a single RingConn costs US$149, the company sells a pair for US$288. At the time of writing, RingConn hopes to begin shipping orders in February 2023, although we would suggest reading up on the risks of backing an Indiegogo campaign before doing so.
