Retailing for $299, the Oura Ring is constructed from titanium and tracks daily step counts and other movements, keeping track of how many times the user is active and inactive throughout the day. More importantly for world travelers the Oura Ring tracks the user’s body temperature while they sleep, comparing it to previous nights and recording variations. Oura’s website reveals the ring “Keeps track of your nightly sleep schedule: the amount and timing of sleep, REM, light sleep, and possible awake time during the night.” According to Travel+Leisure, the data can help travelers adjust their sleep schedule ahead of time to adjust to the new time zone.
