Oura is a health tracker that you wear on your finger, but it measures a lot more than other devices. In addition to the basics (steps, hours of sleep, minutes of activity), body temperature, heart rate variability, resting heart rate and breathing rate are recorded. The extra data – and the accuracy – makes all the difference: Oura picks up on your body’s signals and your daily habits to let you know how ready you are to do your best, and if there’s something to work on , then the companion app gives you actionable insights.
Unlike other trackers, your day is viewed in the context of the last two weeks. That said, if you take a day off or have a few drinks on a Saturday evening, it won’t affect your activity or sleep levels. It also has an in-app mindfulness program. And it can even track your temperature over time to let you know if your period is starting or if you might be experiencing unexpected fluctuations.
(You should get your size right: there is a ring size kit for this.)
