While smart rings cannot formally diagnose illnesses as they are not classified as a medical device, the data it provides can give users the ability to screen for early signs of problems. If you follow the wearables tech news, you could not have missed American basketball league NBA announcing getting technology rings for their players and staffers to help identify possible contractions of the coronavirus COVID-19.
The Oura ring is better in general for those who want to wear their ring for monitoring physical output during exercise to optimize daily work-life balance.
CIRCUL is a highly functional sleep and fitness ring, which also features blood oxygen tracking.
Whereas Oura combines body temperature, heart rate, heart rate variation, and respiratory rate data for detecting the symptoms of COVID-19, CIRCUL is based on tracking the blood oxygen level.
A COVID-19-infected person may not notice any fever or shortness of breath but may be dangerously low on oxygen without realizing it. The CIRCUL uses the same method of pulse oximetry devices (the clip-like device mounted on your finger to measure the blood oxygen saturation in hospitals) but as a ring it will not easily fall off.
Most importantly, you can set alarms on your CIRCUL ring if your blood oxygen level drops below a certain threshold. While this does not qualify as a COVID-19 diagnosis, you can contact your doctor for further medical advice and virus testing.
You can use CIRCUL for continuous daytime and workout monitoring and overnight sleep tracking for up to 12 hours.
It provides you with accurate and continuous tracking of the most essential biometric data on a clear mobile app and allows you to easily share online reports with your family members, trainer, or doctor. Professionals can also enroll in a dashboard user interface to monitor their clients virtually.
While the Oura ring appears more fashionable, it requires you do order by specific ring size.
On the other hand, the Circul ring is an easy-to-use, hassle-free device that fits any finger thanks to its adjustable sizing mechanism.
