Ultrahuman Ring launches as metabolism tracker with up to 6 days battery life
The Ultrahuman ring has launched as a competitor to the Oura Smart Ring. The new gadget allows you to track metabolic biomarkers in real-time to help you to understand your body better. For example, the Ultrahuman Ring can track sleep metrics, including your sleep quality and REM phases and how these affect your body.
The company claims that the gadget can help you find the exercise requiring the least effort for the most significant gains, using motion and heart rate sensors. Plus, the smart ring can measure your recovery by tracking statistics such as your heart rate variability, heart rate and body temperature. You can also pair the ring with the Ultrahuman M1 glucose monitoring patch, which Ultrahuman suggests will provide additional insights into how your food consumption affects your body.
You can connect the Ultrahuman ring to your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing you to view the data collected by the wearable in the accompanying app. The ring is made from titanium with a scratch-resistant tungsten carbide coating, allowing you to wear it during activities such as weight lifting and swimming. The device is available in four different colors and various ring sizes and has up to 6 days of battery life. You can pre-order the Ultrahuman Ring for US$249, with shipping expected to start in December. After this pre-sale period, the retail price of the wearable will increase to US$299.
