24/7 Health Monitoring

Oura Ring Generation 3
From $299

The problem with annual physical exams is the 12 months between each one, making it difficult to track overall wellness. This ring changes all that. By tracking sleep patterns, body temperature, and heart rate variability, wearers can monitor their overall health on a daily basis. The stylish ring can also be used to assist with meditation sessions.
