- A subtle but sleek device
The Motiv Ring keeps everything more convenient. In spite of the fact that Motiv Ring is not as fashionable as Ringly, it is a simple band which is designed with either Slate Gray or Rose Gold with a small LED strip. The material is coated with titanium, which brings about a quite sleek look. The device looks like a high-fashion men’s wedding band. If the ring is in Rose Gold, it looks like the modern version of the One Ring made by Tolkien.
Inside the ring, users can easily see a tiny optical heart rate sensor on a flat edge. This part is designed to be worn on the bottom side of your finger. Eventually, it is able to receive readings from your capillaries. What is more, the Motiv Ring comes with three axis accelerometer as well as a lithium-ion battery. Everything will be synced to your phone through Bluetooth connection. The ring can also be used in the pool easily because it is water resistant to 165 feet.
Furthermore, you will receive two USB chargers as well. One of the two USB will be encased in a keychain for users to bring it along with them at all times. The ring also attaches to a groove and its LED will light up red when being charged and green when the battery is full. It takes about 90 minutes for being fully charged and then you can use the ring within three days.
In terms of functions, the ring is able to measure your active minutes, calories burned, distance, heart rate, sleep and steps as well as other activities. Nevertheless, unlike other fitness trackers, this one can not be used to check your progress on its own. There will be no notification when you hit the goal. If you want to check your progress, all you need to do is taking a look at the application.
- Information about size, app and setting up process
Unlike other wrist-worn trackers, choosing a right ring size is more difficult than measuring your wrist. When you start to place an order online, you will receive a sizing kit from the brand in your mail. There are seven sizes for you to opt and it is recommended to wear a tester during one day to be sure that you get the right size. When you have already had your choice, you need to send the kit back and you will receive a suitable ring for your size in the mail.
Starting to pair the ring is not difficult. Firstly, you should download the Motiv App, which is just available on IOS currently. Then, you need to set up an account and there will be a guide to instruct you through the setup process. In general, you should put the ring on the charger. When the ring is already detected, the app will take care of the rest.
