Oura Ring Grabs Prestigious Red Dot Award

Finnish wearable health tech company Oura Health has been awarded the 2018 Red Dot Award for Product Design in jewelry for its range of Oura rings. The Oura design team set out to create original, contemporary ring designs that could house Oura’s wellness technology and were durable enough to cope with the demands placed on people’s hands and fingers by days and years of constant use. The nature of the wellness information captured by each ring means each Oura ring is designed to be unique to its wearer. The new designs and materials now allow wearers to make aesthetic choices that personalize the rings they wear to their own taste.


The Oura ring and the free Oura app helps users get more restorative sleep and align their lifestyle to their natural circadian rhythm.  More than 20,000 rings have been pre-ordered to date from more than 50 countries. The first Oura rings will be shipped at the end of April 2018. During pre-orders that end on April 30, 2018, the rings are available starting from $249.
