The Oura Ring is currently one of the most successful fitness rings on the market, offering four different color options and various sizes to choose from.
ZDNET's Sherin Shibu bought and tested the Heritage Oura ring, and put it through a number of weekly activities, like strength training, cycling class, yoga class, and more. The highlight of the ring is that it doesn't let the user get lost in data. You get a simplified activity, sleep, and readiness score that you can use to improve your overall wellness, along with more detailed charts monitoring heart rate and body temperature if you wish to peruse them.
Review: Is the Oura Ring worth buying in 2023?
The ring also has exceptional sleep tracking. It provides insightful data that surpasses what you would receive from a Fitbit or the best smart rings. For instance, it displays your HRV balance, temperature changes during sleep (which can be used to predict menstrual cycles), blood oxygen levels, and the duration of each sleep stage.
In addition to its impressive sleep tracking, the Oura Ring also excels in activity tracking. It monitors your steps, calories burned (including active calories), heart rate during exercise, and training volume. When comparing its activity tracking to that of a Garmin Vivomove Sport watch, the Oura Ring was within 200 steps of Garmin's tracked steps.
In 2022, Oura introduced the Horizon model, which removes the flat spot at the top of the ring to make it entirely round like a regular ring. You can opt for the Heritage model, which starts at $299, or the new Horizon model which starts at $349.
