'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

When ZDNET contributor Sherin Shibu reviewed the Oura Ring 3 earlier this year, she said that other wearables on the market pale in comparison to this high tech, health-tracking ring. She used it during strength training, as she cycled, and did yoga, and it offered accurate health tracking data that didn't overwhelm her. "The ring shines where other wearables falter," Shibu writes. 

Oura prioritizes minimalism in both its design and data approach. The Oura Ring delivers data alongside actionable steps you can take to improve, so you aren't just reviewing a low sleep score but instead are finding ways to improve upon that low score the next night. 

"The app user experience is intuitive, the ring is lightweight and pleasant to wear, and it efficiently compartmentalized my sleep and wellness data for actionable insights," Shibu writes. You can sync up your ring with Apple Health, Google Fit, iOS, and Android apps to access your health data. For a more extensive look into that health data, like morning sleep analysis and temperature monitoring, you'll need to buy Oura's $5.99 a month membership. 

If you want the inside scoop into your health data with a lightweight, no-screen design, the Oura Ring might just be for you. And with this rare discount you can take advantage of through Nov. 27, you won't want to miss out on this deal.
