A new wearable device called the Ultrahuman Ring has been launched by India-based fitness tracking startup Ultrahuman. Similar to the Oura ring, the device tracks temperature, movement heart rate, and sleep but boasts connectivity with Ultrahuman’s Cyborg. The Cyborg, Ultrahuman’s previously announced product, is a continuous glucose monitoring patch.

The Ring is as minimal as fitness trackers come, with no screen or vibrating messages. It pairs with a tracker app on your smartphone where it gives you data and feedback on your activities via optical, temperature, and motion sensors in the companion ring.


“We have always believed in the power of biomarkers in terms of their ability to make health optimization more efficient. With the Ultrahuman ring and a new suite of metabolic biomarkers, you can now understand not just what’s affecting your glucose metabolism but also how to act on the insights in an efficient way. For eg., You could figure how much of your glucose metabolism is affected by the lack of sleep vs the food itself. This is a phenomenal leap in the world of biomarkers and allows us to study various factors around human health in a unique and much more impactful way than ever,”

said Mohit Kumar, Founder and CEO.

The Ultrahuman Ring will comprise a tungsten carbide-coated titanium body which is claimed to be 5 times harder than tool steel, making it significantly resistant to scratches as well as being water resistant. You can choose your color; either black, grey, silver or gold.

Preorders for the Ring will be taken starting on 7 July; shipping is planned to begin in August 2022.
