TN50 #45, PSA for the new OURA Gen3, 8 November 2021
Happy Monday and welcome to The Next 50 #45.
As some of you know I am a big fan of the OURA Ring for “performance” tracking. Here’s why:
- I like the ring form factor better than any wearable on my wrist
- I like the long battery life compared to most devices like the Apple Watch
- I like the information displayed on both my mobile, via blue tooth and my laptop via the OURA cloud. The Readiness and Sleep Scores are very useful and where I focus my attention, the Activity Score is good and getting better.
My team members currently uses the OURA Gen2 ring and I can see their data (with permission) on my dashboard which allows us to discuss Sleep and Readiness (recovery) issues. This is a great tool!
I am bringing this up because as of mid-November OURA Gen3 rings will start shipping and the new ring promises to be a major leap forward in day time tracking with major improvements to the Activity Score tracking capabilities as well. You can read about the Gen3 ring improvement here. If you are currently waiting on your OURA ring you will be receiving the Gen3 ring.
If you have the Gen2 Ring you can get a $50 discount on the Gen3 ring this month and more importantly you can get FREE life time access to the OURA Cloud (for first time users this access will require a monthly subscription of a few dollars a month). I recommend current Gen2 Ring owners upgrade their ring through the offer on their app to guarantee the free lifetime access and upgrade discount. Information on how to upgrade from Gen2 to Gen3 is here.
If you are considering getting a Gen3 ring as a new user let me know and I’ll send you a discount code to save $50 on your new ring.
Have a good one, Alex
