The “Circular” Smart Ring Crowdfunding project – a ring that monitors your steps

“Circular” is a smart ring that combines style with cutting edge technology. The ring is designed to drive and motivate the user to lead a more active, energetic, and productive lifestyle. The crowdfunding campaign that started with Kickstarter, was launched to raise $70 000, and currently there are 34 days left to donate. “Circular” is sleek, seamless, and discreet, and powered by intuitive AI.

Crowdfunding has enabled some really curious projects through but this particular Smart Ring is one of the most interesting crowdfunding projects to hit the spotlight in quite some time. This device may also carry the potential to become an alternative, or even replacement, for activity bracelets.

The intelligent ring has all the features needed to become your best ally when it comes to controlling your heart rate, sleep patterns, and the number of steps you take each day. The ring has the same virtues as an activity bracelet. Of course, it may not have its own screen, but it does offer a much more concealed and elegant design than most gadgets available on the lifestyle market.

Circular Smart Ring, the best alternative to a smart band

A usual type of product, the Circular Smart Ring has come into the spotlight on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter and is sweeping the board by offering, above all, design and functionality. Aesthetically speaking, the first thought that comes to mind is how the smart ring has a rather conventional look. Despite this aspect, its black, silver, or pink gold finish, makes the design ooze quality through every one of its pores.

The most interesting part of this product lies inside the casing. Under a traditional exterior, hides a product that will help you get the most out of your day and set new goals for the user. For starters, it has a heart rate sensor, which makes it a perfect companion for any kind of sports, and also uses the same system to study and monitor your sleep patterns.

To this, we add its three-axis accelerometer, allowing the ring to monitor any type of exercise you do, as well as having dust and water resistance, meaning that rain or hiking is of no issue for the device. It’s also worth mentioning that the Circular Smart Ring has a “vibrate” feature. It offers an alarm mode that will wake you up in a much more natural way, avoiding the scares generated by a traditional alarm. It will also activate when you receive any notification, and yes, the feature can be turned off with a simple fingertip gesture, ideal if you’re in the middle of a meeting.

Kira, assistant for making the most of this smart ring

Kira is what will allow you to make the most of the Bluetooth equipped accessory. The Circular Smart Ring will rely on Kira not only to receive the prior mentioned notifications from other devices but also to manage the ring itself.

Above all, Kira will monitor your sleep patterns, giving you insight into how they change from day to day, and also prompt suggestions and recommendations as to how you can improve you’re down, and rest time. And finally, the question we have all been waiting for, how long can the smart ring be used? The ring can be used for two straight days before needing to be charged and has a record charge time of less than an hour.

As you can see, this is an excellent alternative to any activity wristband on the market today, and the Circular Smart Ring can now be booked through the Kickstarter website. The first units are set to arrive in August 2020 and come at a price of $200 (€179).
