You’re here to make a statement and your jewelry should do the same. And if your jewelry comes from Ringly, it will likely do just that. On Thursday, the smart jewelry maker launched a new suite of rings and bracelets that promises to help you lead a healthy and more balanced lifestyle, all while maintaining peace of mind and your personal style.

The rings and bracelets from Ringly are not just aesthetically pleasing — they are activity trackers, too. Keep tabs on the number of steps you have taken, distance traveled, calories burned, and more. You can even set and manage your personal health goals so that you feel as good as your jewelry looks.

But Ringly is not just a pretty fitness wearable. Rather, it is a way to help you stay a bit more connected to the world by disconnecting you from your mobile device. Instead of constantly checking your phone (only to be disappointed by a blank screen), you can instead rest assured that you are not missing any key notifications thanks to your ring or bracelet. Ringly integrates with more than 100 applications, including Gmail, Bumble, JetBlue, and LinkedIn, so you can select which alerts you want to feel (thanks to four subtle vibration patterns and five light colors) and which ones can wait.

“We believe your jewelry should not only be beautiful but also smart,” Ringly founder and CEO Christina Mercando d’Avignon said. “Whether at the dinner table, out with friends, or in an important meeting, Ringly allows you to stay on top of your daily activity and mobile alerts so you never miss a beat, but aren’t glued to your phone.”

Included in Ringly’s newest collection are shiny gold, rose gold, and silver styles, all of which are crafted with semi-precious stones, including howlite, white moonstone, Amazonite, and purple jade. All pieces work within a 20- to 30- foot range from your phone and have a one-year limited warranty. All pieces in the collection are priced at $165.

I’ve worn a smart ring for years. You need to know these things before buying one

The choice of smart rings is growing, and if you’re tempted by one, it’s a great time to get started. However, buying a smart ring isn’t like buying a smartwatch or a Fitbit. There are specific aspects to a smart ring that you should consider before choosing and purchasing one, especially if you’ve never worn a ring of any type before.

I’ve worn an Oura Ring for several years, plus I’ve spent many weeks reviewing the Ultrahuman Ring Air and the RingConn Smart Ring, am currently testing the Circular Ring Slim, have spoken in detail about the forthcoming Movano Evie smart ring, and have high hopes for the Samsung Galaxy Ring too. Here’s what I’ve learned about owning and using a smart ring — and what you should know before getting one yourself.

Do you find yourself getting stressed out often? If so, you may be interested in a new feature headed to the Oura Ring. The new tool is called "Resilience," and it's designed to help you manage stress. It will be available through a software update on Wednesday, January 31.

Resilience is an assessment tool that uses data from your previous activity to evaluate your ability to cope with physiological stress. The Oura app will analyze various factors, such as your stress levels during the day, your ability to recover during the day, and your recovery during sleep, to create a personalized stress assessment. By doing this, Resilience can help you balance your stress and recovery with insights, educational materials, and recommendations to manage stress and improve your overall health.

“We wanted to chat about what's coming in the near future, as well as some new product launches that are happening over the next couple of months, which I think you'll find really interesting. I wanted to give you a sneak peek into what's coming.”

This was how Mohit Kumar, founder and CEO of Ultrahuman, started our conversation when I spoke to him over Zoom. And in doing so, he definitely had my attention. What followed was a fascinating glimpse at how the Ultrahuman Ring Air that I wore recently is only the start for this four-year-old company.
