After our recent report on Samsung's Galaxy Ring plans, Oura has also gained recognition for its premium-priced smart ring. Now, joining the market is Movano, a California-based medical device manufacturer. This November 2023, Movano intends to launch the Evie Smart Ring, available in three colors, and positioned as a more affordable alternative to its competitors.

My recent assertive claim that smart rings may soon overtake slender fitness trackers—such as the Xiaomi Smart Band 8 (which I reviewed)—gains further support with today's article on the Evie Smart Ring from Movano. The manufacturer describes its Evie Smart Ring as follows:

'The Evie Ring is the only smart ring designed specifically for women. From its open design to personalized insights that connect all aspects of your health, every part of the experience is designed for women of all ages and stages of life.

According to the manufacturer's website, the Evie Smart Ring will be available for purchase starting November 20, 2023, at a price of $269. It will come in rose gold, silver, and gold, and will be offered in eight US ring sizes.

As with its competitors, the smart ring's range of functions includes tracking heart rate, skin temperature, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), the menstrual cycle, the path to menopause, sleep recording and, of course, typical fitness training.

All without the need for a paid subscription, as Oura offers for its Horizon Smart Ring, for example.

Another small special feature of the Movano Evie Smart Ring is the small optional charging case, available from $75, which is designed to measure 60 x 60 x 21 mm and can be carried comfortably in a trouser pocket while charging the ring. According to the manufacturer, Evie should last five days on a full charge.

However, there's still one significant caveat to consider: compatibility. As of now, it is exclusively compatible with Apple's iOS, meaning it only works with the iPhone and iPad. Nonetheless, I believe that an Android-compatible app should be released within the next few weeks.

Finally, if you're wondering why the smart ring was designed to be open, Movano wants to compensate for the varying circumference of your finger over the course of a day.

    I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the Evie ring only to discover it currently is only compatible with IOS systems. My dilemma - do I dare buy upon release and hope for Android compatibility when it actually ships in January?

      Never buy a product based on an unreleased feature.

        Ahhhh yes, great advice! Thank you for bringing me back to reality land.

    I've had the Oura ring for a couple of years now. Using a ring like this can potentially have many issues, not only in its features or the precise fit, but with the connection to the phone. Oura has worked great, it's always off line, no Bluetooth needed until only in the morning when you check your score via any phone. Oura is designed by the Finnish engineers in the city of Oulu, Finland, and theres the third gen hoing. Many of the designers have a Nokia background. (Oulu is where Nokia had its R&D in the early phone days.) I chose Oura because it was validated against a full sleep laboratory results within a 3% tolerance. There are a few clinical studies made with it as well. (It was also able to detect Covid three days before symptoms showed up.) The build quality is excellent with a titanium shell. No scratches, and I've had it on in the freezing ice and cold as well as hot saunas, because losing it is the most likely destruction of your Oura. Price is just above 300 USD or Euros if I remember correct. Sizing is easy, as Oura will send you several dummies before ordering to wear them until you feel sure. They also had a one month free style/size change or return when I bought mine.
    Oh, and now after a ring, I will never consider a wrist device / watch again.
    Only con/minus is I don't dare to wear it if lifting weights.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with Oura ring, I really want to test the device, however I didn't had the chance yet. And I believe it would be much easier to sleep with a ring than it is now sleeping with a watch.
