Motiv Ring wants to track fitness from your finger

CES 2017: Smart jewellery that's made for men and women
Motiv Ring tracks fitness from your finger

While most of the smart rings we've written about have focused on safety and delivering notifications from your phone in a discreet fashion, startup Motiv is hoping you ditch your Fitbit for its feature-packed smart ring.

The 8mm wide, titanium built wearable is available in rose gold or slate grey and comes in seven sizes to ensure a perfect fit for men and women. It's also waterproof up to 5ATM (up to 50 metres), so you don't have to take it off when you go for a swim or take a shower. There' also an LED sensor to indicate charging and syncing status.

In that small body it packs in an optical heart rate sensor and a 3-axis accelerometer that's able to track activity type, active minutes, activity intensity, sleep duration, active heart rate, resting heart rate, calories burned, distances and steps.

Data is shared to a companion smartphone app (iOS only) where you can check in on weekly goals and adjust daily targets.

It's powered by micro-battery technology, which Motiv claims will deliver a decent 5 days of battery life with a USB magnetic keychain charger and additional magnetic charger bundled with the ring to power it up full in under 2 hours.

The Motiv Ring is available to pre-order now from the Motiv website for $199.99. We'll have one landing at Wareable HQ in the near future to put this fitness tracking smart ring to the test.

    I'm loving this product already but I'm very curious to see how the ring will stack up for those who are CrossFitters (a lot of movements with a bar, pull-up bar, gymnastic rings, etc.). I've worn a ring before and I recall the ring getting scratched like no tomorrow.

    Once you do get this awesome tech in your hands please make sure to give it to someone who does weights / CrossFit / gymnastics.

    Looking forward to your review!

    Can you also check its swim tracking abilities please?  I'm looking for a decent swim tracker that doesn't resemble the size of a Casio calculator watch of the 90s.  ;)  Thanks!
