The 3rd generation model of the smart ring "Oura Ring" is an excellent health tracker, but there are still inconveniences: Product Review
I didn't even think that the third -generation model of the ring -shaped health tracker "Oura Ring" would be struggling with sales.This is because Finnish Oura Ring, which was released in 2015, has been highly evaluated, simple, accurate and stylish.Moreover, it is almost a standard option for companies and organizations that want to detect signs of new colon virus infections (COVID-19) early.Everyone was waiting for the appearance of the third -generation model (to be precise, everyone who cares about this).

The reason for the voice of "disappointment"
However, the voice I heard immediately after the release was "expectation".This is not because the appearance and functions of Oura Ring have changed significantly.This is because a new subscription model has been introduced.
Previously, all functions were available as long as we purchased Oura Ring, but we will have to pay $ 6 (about 680 yen) per month to watch advice and guides that are optimized for individuals.。Even worse, many of the new features obtained until they pay (one of the blood oxygen saturation measurement functions) cannot be used until the beginning of 22 years.
In response to this, the developer Oura Health Oy put on insurance.The first six months of the subscription are free, and users who buy from the second generation to the third generation have made the subscription fee free for a lifetime.
However, this is limited to purchases by November 29, 2021.If you do not buy by this period, you will eventually pay for a replacement, and then pay more for functions that cannot be used yet.Moreover, the warranty period has been reduced from two years to one year.
There is no problem with the subscription model itself.Other fitness trackers such as "WHOOP" and "Fitbit" are also subscribed.However, these wearable equipment is much cheaper than Oura Ring.
On the other hand, there is no other product like Oura Ring.It is equipped with a large number of sensors, most of which are very accurate, and small and easy to wear.If you want Oura Ring, you should buy this third generation.But personally, I understand why people feel dissatisfied.
Convenient and accurate as usual
The exterior of the third generation Oura Ring is the same as the second generation model.Measure the size of the index finger or middle finger with the size measurement kit sent after ordering Oura Ring, and get Oura Ring that fits you.
This small device is packed with surprisingly many sensors.In the third generation, in addition to green and red LEDs, infrared rays and new body temperature sensors are also installed.From 24 -hour heart rate and subtle changes in body temperature to the moment of falling asleep, to the timing of awakening, everything is monitoring.
