Many people I’ve talked to are hesitant to get an Apple Watch or Fitbit because they don’t like the feel of something on their wrist. But when I hear them say that I always point them in the direction of a Oura Ring Heritage – a ring that can track your sleep, fitness, body temperature and much more. While it’s obviously not a replacement for a typical watch, the information you can discover with your finger is quite impressive.
While the Oura Ring is only a fraction of the size of a smartwatch, this wearable has features comparable to Fitbits and Apple Watches, but with more accurate readings. When it comes to gathering information about your health, the most accurate readings tend to come from the finger, including heart rate, movement data, and general accuracy across skin tones.

These rings are made of titanium with PVD coating that can make them water resistant up to 328 feet. Sleep counting, physical readiness readings and activity tracking are just a few of the many features this ring has. With sleep tracking technology, this ring can track your oxygen levels to determine if you have breathing problems overnight and give you a score based on how well you slept that night. By tracking your sleep, your readiness score will be more accurate, so you can know when is the best time to exercise, or if you should take a day off from the gym.
