Prince Harry Explore’s Balance With An Oura Health Ring

Prince Harry has learnt a thing or two from his healthy wife, Meghan Markle. The royal seems to be rocking a new look with his new, high-tech piece of wearable technology. Whilst arriving in Australia for the Royal Tour, we noticed the ring – which, apparently, has incredible health and fitness benefits that allow you to fine-tune your overall performance and wellbeing.

You might be familiar with fitness trackers like the Fitbit or apps like MyFitnessPal. However, these wristbands and fitness trackers are usually quite large and require you to lug them around. They certainly don’t suit the elegant attire of a prince. That’s why Oura has launched its sleek and non-intrusive ring. It can be worn all day every day with any outfit or uniform.

And now with Prince Harry leading the trend, the demand for fitness tracking rings is only set to increase. The world is basically saturated with smartwatches and fitness bands. But,  a sleek ring is probably the best accessory to keep up to date with your health insights in a more unobtrusive way.

Prince Harry Is Fine Tuning His Life

The purpose of wearing an Oura ring is to try and find your perfect balance. The key is to discover how to keep your body in this zone once you have found it. It’s almost like wearing a coach who is there to help you with daily feedback to improve your health. The ring serves to help you better understand your body and reach your goals. You’ll be guided through an intelligent, data-driven plan to help you improve across the most important aspects of your well-being.Prince Harry [longevity live]

According to the images posted online, Prince Harry seems to have taken a liking to a black fitness ring. However, if you like there are other colours to choose from and custom designs. You know how the saying goes, ‘less is more.’ The device is fitted with a body temperature sensor, an infrared sensor, a 3D accelerometer and a gyroscope. The ring connects to an app on your phone which delivers regular insights into your body.

Technology is getting really sophisticated and wearable technology is not only about tracking your physical fitness goals. These Oura rings can actually measure your sleep, physical activity, resting heart rate as well as your body temperature. By tracking all the different insights the ring is able to combine them to give you a ‘readiness’ score.

Oura says the score notifies you when it’s time to aim for the peak performances or when it’s better to rest and recharge. The downside is that these amazing devices are not exactly cheap. Some of Oura’s products sell for over £900. However, according to Hello, Prince Harry’s owns a Heritage titanium ring, which is slightly less and starts selling at around £275.

Learning To Live Your Best Life

The gorgeous Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and ex-Suits actress has always been a health guru herself. Meghan is also known to be very health-conscious. It makes sense that Prince Harry is inspired by his wife’s approach to life. Of course, the most important thing to achieve optimal health is to maintain a nutritious diet and a regular exercise regime.Prince Harry [longevity live]

However, using wearable technology can really help you get down to the root cause of those hiccups you might experience along the way. The statistical evidence is sometimes the only way to bring us back down to reality about our bodies is the force you need to take control of your personal health.

In fact, rumour has it that Prince Harry might even be joining Mehan with her regular practice of Yoga. These two are definitely going to be the next big role models in health and vitality.

Smart Wristbands Or Sleek Fitness Rings?

In my opinion, there is a time and a place for both. I personally don’t believe that either of them do the same thing. Instead, their focus is slightly different as well as their uses. For example, the fitness ring is not only about tracking your heart rate and calories burned.

It’s more about providing you with an in-depth review of your body’s current state in general which includes sleep time. It is an amazing tool to wear throughout every day and could be the key to learning how to treat your body on a daily basis. You’ll be able to determine whether it’s best to rest, workout, eat food or sleep more. The bonus is that the ring looks good too. It is sleek, elegant and doesn’t interfere with your outfit or movements because the app documents of its simplistic design.Prince Harry [longevity live]

Plus, wearing a large, chunky wristband is not exactly ideal. However, if it’s hardcore fitness tracking you want, you’re probably best to stick to a band because it’s core focus is your physical status.

Therefore, if Prince Harry and his Yogi, Duchess wife both start wearing these rings. Then there is no doubt that the accessory will sell out almost instantly. I expect to see more people catching onto the trend and perhaps Oura will be the next big change in health and fitness.
