Fitness Tracker Rings

Most of us are familiar with smartwatches, or devices that resemble them, wrapping round our wrists to track our health. However, the wearables market is growing, with earrings, bracelets and sunglasses all now becoming options. If you want small and convenient, the tracker ring seems to be a particularly attractive choice, but are these little devices all they’re cracked up to be (https://longevity.technology/lifestyle/fitness-tracker-ring-smart-rings-benefits-disadvantages-uses-brands/)?

Whether you call them fitness tracker rings or smart rings, the basic concept is pretty self-explanatory. It’s a band that can be worn around one finger but that is full of all sorts of sensors and tech to keep measuring your performance throughout the day. Powerful yet discreet – and convenient and portable – it’s clear why this particular form of wearable could be popular.

The kinds of data tracked by a smart ring are similar to those monitored by other wearable devices. Basic but invaluable markers such as your heart rate, number of steps per day, and the ways your body changes while you sleep are all essential if you’re trying to evaluate your current health and performance so you can find ways to make it better.

Most modern rings are highly sensitive and able to collect accurate data and process it effectively. They also come with an extended battery life. Combine that with their aesthetics and convenience, and they seem almost perfect – unless you’re one of those people who is not comfortable wearing rings at all.

There are some other potential issues, however. It’s impressive how much such a small device can do, but they’re still not generally as well-equipped or accurate as the watch versions. They’re also pretty expensive. If you’re spending that much money, you’re going to want your ring to last, but that’s only going to happen if you maintain it properly, cleaning away the sweat and dirt that will inevitably accumulate around the band. Another thing to check before you buy is whether the software is compatible with your smartphone and other devices.

It wasn’t so long ago that there were only one or two brands of smart ring, but now you have a much broader choice that continues to expand. This means it’s time to start comparing different features, aesthetics and compatibility if you want to figure out which one might work best for you. Just don’t forget about maintenance!
