Sleep is an important investment in the energy you need to be efficient tomorrow. There are many factors that play a role in a body’s ability to sleep. Disturbing your body’s clock tampers with the sleep that you need, and in turn affects your quality of health.

Sleep plays a vital role in the well-being of an individual. Getting a sufficient amount of high quality sleep protects an individual’s mental and physical health and in turn, can greatly improve your quality of life. Keeping track of sleep to avoid sleep deprivation is an important aspect of life.

The Oura Ring Can Help Track Your Sleep

The Oura ring is a small health, fitness, and sleep device that you can wear on your finger. The ring uses state of the art electronics to track the parameters that affect an individual’s health. The Oura ring has three sensors that help measure the heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration rate, movement and activity, body temperature, sleep date and more.

The Oura ring is a very light, insanely small and discrete high tech wearable ring made of ultra-strong titanium. Data is updated regularly in the app using a built-in bluetooth connection. The ring can also store up to six weeks worth of data in the onboard memory chip and the data is not lost if the battery dies. The data from the ring gives the user a higher degree of insight into what their quality of sleep is like.

Why is Sleep Important?

Sleep plays a vital role in the well-being of any individual. When the body sleeps, it works to support the brain functions and maintain physical health.

  • Sleeps helps support the growth and development of children and teenagers.
  • A good night’s sleep improves learning ability.
  • Sleep enhances an individual’s problem-solving skills and creativity.

Insufficient sleep has been linked to depression, suicide, and risk-taking behavior. Children and teenagers who experience a severe lack of sleep often feel angry and depressed, and do poorly in school. It’s not uncommon to suffer from mood swings and problems paying attention as well.

Ongoing sleep deficiency leads to increased risk of heart disease, kidney problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, and the risk of obesity.

Keep Track of your Sleep!

The miniaturized electronics in the Oura ring can recognize when the body sleeps. The ring analyses the quality of sleep by measuring the heart rate, respiration rate, body temperature and the movement of the body while asleep. When the body is awake, the ring monitors the intensity and duration of the body’s activities and the time spent being idle.

By understanding how well the body has rested, the Oura ring determines the body’s readiness to perform an activity and helps adjust the duration and intensity of the activity. By suggesting changes to one’s day to day activities, the Oura ring helps an individual sleep better. Sleep is an essential chain that binds health and our bodies together.
