Oura smoothes out its third-generation smart ring

After many years of trying, Oura has finally managed to grind down the hard edge of his body tracking smart ring. The company is updating the third generation of its ring, which originally launched in late 2021, but this time with a perfectly round body. The Oura (Gen3) Horizon retains the same array of advanced sensors as the existing model, but looks a lot better on the finger.

Most wearables, even the sleek ones, have a hard edge or two in their design, as common batteries and components are built in rectangles. While the Oura 3 wasn’t ugly, the hard side did take a point or two off its style stats, especially at certain unflattering angles. And if the ring slipped around, it would dig into your knuckles while exercising, which wasn’t ideal.

The ring itself is mostly unchanged from the Gen3, which isn’t surprising as it came loaded with a boatload of features that Oura herself is still trying to exploit. The company has rolled out new features throughout the year, including daily and exercise heart rates, period prediction, and blood oxygen tracking.

Our Ring (Gen3) Horizon is available to order now and is priced at $349 while the existing ring remains at $299. Potential buyers can also pick it up in silver, black, stealth, and gold, with the Horizon getting an exclusive rose gold colorway that looks pretty tasty. Not to mention, you still have to pay $5.99 per month to unlock all the goodies the company keeps hidden for power users.
