Unboxing the new Oura ring

Last time we asked you for your unboxing experiences. We’ve seen some fantastic ones over on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks everyone for sharing! We know that many of you have been, in your own words, “stalking the hashtag #ouraring” and it’s great to see many of you receiving the rings and sharing the positive first impressions. Truly appreciated.

InstagramStats after the first night by @sandyknutrition

“The more I wear and use it the more information it will gather about me, my habits, my health – it is WAY more than just a sleep tracker and with time, more and more information is gathered about my general health. It’s a beautiful ring and the quality is amazing. I’ve had different types of trackers in the past and they don’t quite compare to this in terms of attractiveness and the stats provided.”

InstagramQuick review after first 18 days by @kalliojoona

“First of all I love the way the ring is designed: it’s stunning and surprisingly light weight. Surface is durable and the ring is easy to clean. Combined with (up to) 1 week of battery life, you can really wear & forget about it.”

Youtube“OURA ring 2 Unboxing” by The Enthusiast Experiment

“Lighter than I expected. Just a tad heavier than the actual trial kit, which is very interesting. So very light. Not a problem. That’s actually going to be really nice when you’re going to wear it.”
