Weekly Feature: Motiv Ring Measures Your HR, Sleep & Exercise

Activity Tracker Gone Sleek

The highly anticipated Motiv Ring is here!

Business Insider has said it is “The first activity tracker I actually want to wear all day, every day.”

Gizmodo referred to Motiv as “a babe among clunky eye sores.”

So what makes the Motiv Ring special?

Design

  • Receive a sizing kit to ensure your ring sits comfortably on your finger.
  • 3-days battery life and only 90-minutes to restore full charge.
  • Waterproof up to 165 feet.
  • Stylish and subtle, wrapped in a titanium shell.
  • The Motiv Ring weighs less than a penny.

Technology

  • 2-days of onboard storage so you can leave your phone at home whilst you exercise and the ring will simply sync with your phone when you are home.
  • HR Sensor (Motiv Ring has some advantages in this field to wrist-based devices. Tattoos or lots of arm hair can affect the quality of your heart rate data when wearing a wristband. These factors are less common on a finger, and the lighter part of your palm also helps with heart rate data collection).
  • Sleep Quality Tracking

Motiv Ring App

  • Stay motivated with updates on how close you are to achieving your weekly activity goal.
  • Activity, not steps is the focus. Although steps are still counted, Motiv want to get your heart rate up!
  • Data on calories burnt and resting and active heart rate is available at the touch of a button.

At $199.99 the Motiv Ring costs more than some mid-price wrist wearables but perhaps you are willing to sacrifice that little bit extra cash to get your hands on the smallest ever wearable to have a heart rate sensor in.
