Put A Ring On it

Are you chronically tired? Do you feel like your sleep sucks ass? Is it affecting your training, your job, your relationships, your attractiveness and your ability to listen to a full episode of Power Athlete Radio? Your problem just became our problem. And we are PROBLEM SOLVERS. Luckily we are joined this week by Harpreet Rai [@harprizzle], CEO of Ouraring [@Ouraring]. He’s the brains behind the ring which incorporates temperature, infared LED’s, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope to track not only your sleep but your activity. Don’t know what any of these things are? Unlike many wearables, Rai’s approach has always been transparency of technology. In this episode he’ll tell you how Ouraring works and what it means for the athlete. Do not sleep on this brain bomb.
Tracking your sleep…so hot right now. But Ouraring is not your average wearable. It’s constantly evolving and improving technology uses the finger to gather performance data. Why the finger, you say? Because science. Our guest Harpreet Rai Harpreet Rai [@harprizzle], CEO of Ouraring [@Ouraring] explains why your standard wrist or chest attachment isn’t as accurate as the one ring that rules them all. When your training suffers, all signs point immediately to your shit recovery. That’s not the only bad news…your poor sleep is causing you to age FASTER. It’s a vicious cycle that can be prevented by the technology found in the Ouraring. In the words of the great lover of sleep (and subsequently still alive) Rod Stewart…”Forever Young”. Listen now!

    Perfect timing. I just broke my iWatch. I like the concept and ability to track sleep, HRV and body temp. However, I wouldn’t wear this working out or working around the house. I’m not a fan of wearing a chest strap heart rate monitor either. What’s the PAHQ recommendation for wearables? I must have missed it in the Podcast.
