Ava bracelet aims to help women get pregnant with data

The fertility wearable gives a better timeframe on increasing odds of conception
Ava bracelet wants to help you get pregnant

Trying to get pregnant isn't always easy which is why there's a growing number of gadgets to help couples out - and the Ava fertility tracking bracelet is a new wearable you can add to the list.

Worn only during the night, Ava's makers claims it can detect an average of 5.3 fertile days per cycle by reading your body's cues to gather millions of data points.

Specifically, Ava is looking at nine physiological parameters: resting pulse rate, skin temperature, heart rate variability, sleep, breathing rate, movement, perfusion, bioimpedance and heat loss. Everything is then synced to your iPhone in the morning (with Android support coming soon).

Sounds like a lot for a simple, Misfit-esque looking wearable. If that's not convincing enough, the Switzerland/San Francisco startup is submitting a research paper on its findings to be peer-reviewed by a reproductive journal.

According to the Ava site, the team is also planning to push out more clinical studies to hone its algorithms "for use in both pregnancy recognition, pregnancy monitoring, and possible use as a non-hormonal contraceptive device."

With the wearable, the company hopes women can better track their bodies to figure out the best time to conceive. That's apparent in the research and the fact that Ava is FDA approved, classified as a medical device rather than a sleep tracker or step counter.

The Ava bracelet is available to order now for $199.

    Sounds like a great device! I used free ttckit OPKs before I got pregnant but temp tracking has always been my weakness. Hope this helps a lot of women realize their dream of being a mom!

    So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 6 years now and we have had no luck. I don’t have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I’m ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 2 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I’m thinking it could be a problem with me but I’ve never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know i’m slightly overweight but that shouldn’t affect our chances too much,one faithful day my friend told me to contact a spiritual coven that help her sister, then i sent them an email which was giving to me ,fountainwatercoven@yahoo.com . after three months the doctor confirm that i am pregnant.

    I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with her medicine, i collected her contact an explain my situation to her she prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe I by her. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2014. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2016, thank you mama , this is her email contact if you require her help nativeiyabasira@yahoo.com and her facebook profile https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100015213019194
