What is new wearable BioRing?
It’s not exactly Green Lantern’s ring but I guess it’ll have to do. This week’s highlighted gadget is the BioRing. The BioRing is a ‘wellness tracker’ that is rugged enough to be waterproof and resistant to scratches all while measuring various metrics concerning your health – all from your finger!
The BioRing aims to build on the Fitbit while offering slightly different and enhanced features all from a smaller design. Inside, it has a number of sensors to track an extensive set of metrics that include calorie intake, fat intake, heart rate, calories burned, protein intake, sleep level and status, stress levels, water levels, activity intensity, as well as distance and steps, (it can also sense your skepticism). You can analyse all these stats while on the go from your smartphone – if all goes well this will be a great way to prove to people you are in fact stressed! Conversation breakers such as, “You think you’re stressed” will be a thing of the past after people begin to whip out their iPhones to prove that actually, “yes, I am very stressed, I’ve not drunk enough today AND I’ve eaten too much fat”.
The crowd-funded product more than tripled its funding-goal and has already begun to perfect the prototype to move into mass production so the BioRing may be closer to the mainstream than first imagined.
