Despite how small it is, it’s not just a piece of stylish jewellery on your finger but it also acts as an electronic gadget to keep you company depending on your needs. We narrowed down four of the best to finally get you to put a ring on it.

2. Dhyana Meditation Ring (from #58,000)
Dhyana created this smart meditation ring to assist you in enhancing your general well-being, motivation, and everyday mindfulness exercises and rituals. It’s not only easy to charge, but it’s even easier to charge up and carry around with you, thanks to safe HRV (heart rate variability) sensors, an astounding seven-day active battery, and wireless charging features.
The Dhyana meditation monitoring software generates a full report after each session including breathing, times your mind strayed away, and when you focused.
3. BodiMetrics CIRCUL Sleep And Fitness Ring (#83,000)
The CIRCUL is designed to track and record your blood oxygen levels, record your exercise heart rate, steps, and calories burned. You can also track your sleep oxygen saturation, heart rate, and sleep stages, as it alerts you via your CIRCUL mobile app according to the oxygen saturation levels you set for your personal tracking. To keep track of your entire bodily health, you can share your sleep and workout statistics with your partner, trainer, physician, caregiver, or family member.
4. Oura Ring Generation 3 (#124,685)
The Oura Ring might look like your average piece of jewellery, but it’s loaded with sensors for your heart rate, respiratory rate and body temperature. It also features a 3D accelerometer for detecting movement. It’s available in four different metal finishes, but you’ll need to use a sizing kit to find the proper fit. While the sizing process is a little tedious, it’s essential to fitting something you’re supposed to wear 24/7. Speaking of 24/7 wear, the Oura Ring only needs to be removed for charging every 4-7 days. It’s waterproof and protected against soaps, oils, or other elements your fingers may come in contact with.
Oura leads the pack as the best makers of smart rings to date, but with Movano promising slightly better features at a cheaper price, and with Apple’s announcement of their smart ring patent, 2022 is shaping up to be the year of finger-worn wearables.
