The Evie ring is not just a stylish piece of jewelry; it’s a health tracker designed for women, offering a chic way to monitor vital health statistics for a tailored health overview.
Step aside, Oura. The spotlight at CES 2024, the premier global tech event, was stolen by a newcomer: the Evie ring by Movana Health, crafted with a focus on women’s wellness.
The Evie ring effortlessly monitors sleep patterns, heart rate, blood oxygenation, and step count. It also allows for manual input of exercise specifics, energy levels, and menstrual cycles. Its unique data interpretation aims to synthesize these metrics into a personalized health narrative.
To gauge its effectiveness, I subjected it to the rigorous demands of a tech journalist at CES. Amidst the sprawling event, my routine involved darting between venues and accumulating an impressive step count. Amidst frequent handshakes came constant hand sanitizing, and the ring also witnessed the impact of cross-country travel on my sleep quality in Las Vegas.
Evie’s insights are personalized, recognizing that everyone’s ‘off’ days are different. By analyzing long-term trends, it assists in setting and achieving personalized health objectives. This may involve logging menstrual cycles or noting days of feeling unwell to discern patterns and receive tailored advice.
My experience began with a swift setup of a demo Evie on the exhibition floor, which quickly synced with my phone. The ring’s aesthetic, featuring an elegant arrow-like design, disguises its technological nature, betrayed only by the occasional flash of its biometric sensors.
While my time with Evie at CES was brief, it proved a robust test of its core features, particularly its step-tracking accuracy. On the first day, it logged 18,000 steps, outpacing my Apple Watch by 3,000 steps.
The ring’s comfort was notable; it fit snugly without any irritation, adaptable to any finger without compromising accuracy.
The bustling environment of CES, with its myriad interactions, often poses a health risk, but Evie withstood the constant use of hand sanitizer and washing without issue.
Tracking sleep was another highlight. Despite the challenges of jet lag and irregular sleep patterns, the ring meticulously recorded each disturbance throughout the night, a task I usually forgo with my Apple Watch due to charging routines.
Evie’s battery life is commendable, lasting several days on a single charge, allowing for continuous wear without concern. Recharging is a breeze, akin to charging wireless earbuds, thanks to its magnetic docking.
A standout feature of Evie is its discreet nature. It enables seamless health monitoring without the distraction of notifications, offering insights through its app on demand.
Enhanced Connectivity with the Evie App The companion app for the Evie ring delivers a daily digest tailored to your activities, encompassing steps taken, calories burned, sleep quality, and mood. Moreover, Movana has announced that the Evie ring is equipped with sensors fine-tuned for the physiological nuances of women’s fingers, which may vary in size, blood circulation, and hormonal influences compared to men’s.
Priced at $269, the Evie ring stands out from competitors like Oura by not imposing any recurring fees for membership or services. While a comprehensive evaluation would require more time, my initial experience at CES confirms that Evie is both resilient and charmingly designed.
Currently available for pre-order in three elegant finishes—silver, gold, and rose gold—Evie is slated for delivery later this month. At present, the ring and its app are exclusively compatible with iOS devices, but Movana is actively working to extend support to Android users soon.
