Ultrahuman smart ring

Ultrahuman, an Indian startup, has introduced a smart ring that it claims will offer wearers “ultrahuman power.” And by “ultrahuman power,” the company refers to a fitness tracker that analyses your metabolism by observing your movements and sleep. For more thorough metabolic tracking, the company’s M1 glucose monitoring patch can also be utilized with the smart ring.

The popular Oura Ring appears to be the Ultrahuman Ring’s design and feature inspiration. It features a PPG motion sensor, temperature sensor, and heart rate sensor. Similar to the Oura Ring, there is no screen and no haptics, therefore you must use the Ultrahuman app to view your metrics.

The actual ring is constructed of “titanium” and has a tungsten carbide coating for further toughness. This should help with weightlifting and other sports that can smash up rings (like rowing, pull-ups, etc.), according to the Ultrahuman website. Its battery life is comparable to that of the Oura Ring and most fitness trackers at four to six days on a single charge. Although the ring can be worn independently, the business claims that when combined with the Ultrahuman M1 patch, users can observe how their dietary habits affect their ability to recover and perform. A continuous glucose monitor is the M1.

The ring is constructed from “fighter jet” titanium, and a tungsten carbide coating has been added for further toughness. The Ultrahuman website claims that this should assist with weightlifting and other exercises that can damage rings, such as rowing and pull-ups. Its battery life is comparable to that of other fitness trackers and the Oura Ring at four to six days on a single charge.

The company claims that when used in conjunction with the Ultrahuman M1 patch, users may see how their food consumption affects recovery and performance. An always-on glucose meter is the M1.

Built and Design

There are several different colors and finishes available, including some classy-looking black and silver variants. Ultrahuman claims that the Ring is made of titanium with a “scratch resistant” tungsten carbide coating.

Expect a brief latency in the morning while it reconnects and offloads data, but the hardware architecture seems strong and resilient, handling the varying demands placed on human hands admirably. Therefore, there aren’t any significant issues with the hardware’s dependability or feel. Instead, the smart ring’s physical aspect makes me wonder about its functional utility in relation to this type of fitness-focused use case.

Ultrahuman advises against wearing the Ring on the thumb as opposed to a finger, saying that the index, middle, or ring fingers are preferable. A snug fit is advised for accurate data capturing, it continued. “When switching between fingers, there will only be data quality issues if the ring is loose on the fingers and isn’t fitting as it should.”

Performance & User Experience

With its almost real-time window into blood glucose levels, CGM technology is a particularly fascinating—and relatively new—addition to the mix. One that could, in contrast to the all too often ineffective general healthy living counsel on the advantages of eating well and exercising enough, enable truly individualized interventions that could make a difference for all types of people. It is also evident that leading-edge goods in the category are still debating the most effective ways to analyze and convey the data they track. Thus, the user experience occasionally may seem unfinished and experimental.

For now, as we gain a better understanding of how a person’s lifestyle affects their metabolism, the combination of the Ring and CGM offers clear flashes of potential for unlocking wiser therapies. During the time I used the beta product, new features were being added, and many more are planned, so the experience is still developing quickly. But it appears to be a very safe bet that some of the cutting-edge tracking being developed by firms like this one will seep into the mainstream in the not-too-distant future.
