Oura has come up with a second-generation ring, according to a report published on March 14, 2018.
The first generation smart ring by Oura had proved that fitness tracker can be put on a finger. This second generation ring attracts the attention of the users, as they look very similar to an actual ring. This ring does not look like an activity tracker. Smaller and customized components were used by the company to get the new shape of the ring. Compared to the first generation ring that could hold the battery charge for only two or three days, the battery of this ring runs for seven days.
The ring has a new gyroscope that provides with a better tracking of activities of the user. However, the company confessed that this ring will not be able to replace smart wearables of Fitbit. One of the important features of this ring is that it helps the user to get healthier by giving details about their sleep cycle and circadian rhythms. This ring can be charged without involving a micro-USB port. The band has to be dropped onto the inductive charging plate and within 80 minutes, it gets charged. The ring is clad in titanium with a diamond-like carbon coating that is scratch resistant.
Three different versions of this ring will be available to the users. Two of the rings will be available in different colors such as rose gold, matte black and silver and will cost US$ 299. The third ring will be priced at US$ 999. This new ring will be available to the users from April, 2018. This gadget is expected to increase the growth of wearable sensor market, as elaborated in the wearable sensor market report published by Coherent market Insights.
