The $300 Smart Ring that NBA Players Use!

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

Hey everybody welcome back to tech smart i'm tom with 2ms today i'm going to be unboxing the aura ring which techcrunch called the wearable to beat in 2020. as you can tell i've just left the nba bubble i've been eliminated from the playoffs because i wasn't welcome there we're going to unbox this it's a smart ring from a finnish company and everyone knows i'm going to helsinki anyway so we're going to see why the nba bought 600 000 worth of aura rings that's right all right we had the aura box with this amazing logo

Which is like the green lantern if they didn't finish the green lantern it says improve your sleep understand your body transform your health advanced technology monitors your sleep readiness and activity do you have a mom for that it's purdy has the a to c charger that they promised you had a few options when you ordered this ring you could get it in silver black or stealth and as you can tell i'm not stealth about anything so

She's my manicure you got to choose your ring size and they go from sizes 6 to 13. i went with an 11 has these little led infrared sensors inside here there's an accelerometer ultra light titanium i was told it's four to six grams so this is me weighing it for you you're supposed to do with the led sensors facing your palm and you can put it on either your ring finger your pointer finger or the one that's in between those so it doesn't come with a charging block

The charger matches the size of the ring and that's super important on the bottom of this you can see it says size 11. slide it on here hopefully according to this it'll take about 20 to 80 minutes to get a full charge and a full charge lasts seven full days which is very exciting a week our next step is to download the app and then after that we pair it via bluetooth and the rest hopefully will be history all right we've downloaded the app we've put in way too

Much information we've synced it with apple health i have charged the aura ring it is on my finger hopefully the sensors work and they don't realize that i'm 400 years old now time for a montage where we show how truly athletic i really am that was exhausting so let's find out what the app told us about my readiness my activity and my sleeping which are the three things that

Aura really harps on the nba as we talked about bought all of these for their staff for their players to sort of get an idea of if they'd have any symptoms that um we're all worried about these days i'll say this the aura health ring is incredible about tracking symptoms it's not going to tell you if you're sick it's not going to tell you if you have any viruses but it will tell you if your sleep pattern is off

It will tell you that you need to go to bed it will tell you what your active heart rate is while you're sleeping it won't really tell you when you're working out um if your heart rate is spiking but it does keep control of your body temperature particularly when you're sleeping so night after night you can see okay my body temperature is dropping and i'm going to bed earlier and earlier or i'm not getting a deep sleep or i'm not even getting a light sleep

What's going on with that they have these scores up to 100 that let you know if your sleep is good bad or not good my sleep was not good my sleep was in the 70s you need to be in like the mid 80s to be considered good and then above 85 it's considered great my sleep wasn't good because i was going to bed too late according to the app and i wasn't getting deep sleep can you imagine someone with this level of horrifying energy not getting to sleep on time my activity was incredible my

Activity was in the 90s as you saw from our famous montage it was very impressed with my calories burned and my steps taken and i reached my goals within hours yay us the ring also does this cool thing where it reminds you to stay active kind of like the apple watch the aura ring is a far better tracker of your steps than your phone well sometimes you leave your phone down and you're not walking around with it and if you don't have a watch the ring really

Takes into account how many steps you have so my steps have gone like crazy you can keep track of certain activities that you do that may impact your sleep let's say you had caffeine later in the day or night than you wanted to let's say you had like a soda you can tag that in the app and so the app knows oh your night's sleep isn't because you're having weird health problems it's because you had caffeine not really sure what readiness is quite yet even after using the app it determines based on your activity and sleep

How ready you are and how optimal you are for your next day what has your recovery been i apparently have optimal body temperature optimal recovery and my resting heart rate is good good so my readiness is in the 80s so the big thing with our research is we were trying to figure out okay why did the nba spent 600 000 to buy 2 000 or rings the good thing about the aura ring for the nba players is that it monitors all the stuff

They're doing off the court you don't see these guys really wearing it on the court it really is best use for sleep activity it's cool readiness still don't know what that means that's cool but sleep this is the best sleep monitor out there in all of tech this is incredible and if you're lebron james and you need to get an extra few hours of nine-nine or you want to wonder why you're not getting sleep or if you are on the knicks and you're not invited to the nba bubble and you're having night terrors that you

Have to play basketball again in six months you'll be wondering why you can't sleep and this will tell you you're not getting a deep sleep because you're not a good team let me tell you i really like the aura ring i don't know if i'm gonna wear it for eternity just because i keep clanking things on it i do believe uh that nba players do benefit from it all right guys that does it for our deep dive on the aura ring thank you so much for watching for

Indulging me for dealing with me i'm tom with 2ms please watch more give us a subscribe give us a thumbs up hope you had a ball hope it was nothing but net hope it was a swish oh it's terrible again let me know what you want me to do a deep dive on or a shallow dive on in the comments section many of you want me to do a shallow dive into a pool and i understand that completely let's do rock paper scissors on the way out rock paper scissors shoot did you win bye
