Metabolic fitness platform Ultrahuman launched its latest wearable device, Ultrahuman Ring, in April with the acquisition of consumer-focused wearable company LazyCo.
The metabolic tracking wearable, which launches for global pre-order on July 7, complements the existing suite of biomarkers tracked by the Ultrahuman platform to provide real-time metabolic biomarker data. It will measure exercise, sleep and body energy dynamics and provide recovery recommendations in real time to help wearers balance and take control of their health.
The Ultrahuman ring features a minimalist, sleek design with an outer surface made of titanium coated with tungsten carbide, which is five times harder than tool steel and therefore highly resistant to scratches. The ring has been carefully designed to withstand harsh use conditions and exercise, and its smooth inner shell means it’s comfortable for sleeping and resting.
It also has no screen or vibration to share activity, allowing the wearer to avoid receiving constant notifications. Instead, wearers can check their activity on the app when they need to. The ring also has a five-day battery life.
We have always believed in the power of biomarkers because of their ability to optimize health more effectively,” said Mohit Kumar, founder and CEO of Ultrahuman, in a statement. With the Ultrahuman ring and a new set of metabolic biomarkers, you can now understand the factors that don’t just affect your glucose metabolism and how to act on those insights in an effective way.
“For example, you can calculate how much of your glucose metabolism is affected by sleep deprivation and food itself. This is an amazing leap forward in the field of biomarkers and allows us to study the various factors of human health in a more unique and impactful way than ever before.”
The Ultrahuman Ring will be available for pre-order worldwide on July 7 and will begin shipping in August.
