Motiv Ring - This Ring Is Nearly the Perfect Minimalist Fitness Tracker
The Motiv ring doesn’t nag you. It doesn’t over-analyze. It just tells you when you slept, how your resting heart rate is doing, and with a little help, it can keep track of how much you exercise.
That’s really all the data you can rely on from a fitness tracker, anyway. Tracking heart rate accurately would be nice, but it wouldn’t change our motivation to exercise or our understanding of our own fitness.
The Motiv ring is new, so perhaps more features are on the way. The app is currently iOS only, but there’s a partially functional public beta for Android. Meanwhile, other companies are working on their own rings: Oura ring has similar features but is positioning itself more as high-end jewellery.

I’m not into watches or wristbands, but for the last few weeks I’ve been wearing a fitness tracker on my finger. It knows how long I sleep and detects when I walk or run, and all I’ve gotta do is wear it like jewelry and forget about it.
