Bought it few months ago, mostly due to being impressed by the engineering side of it, then had a closer look at the data it was collecting at night and it looked very much like something pulled out of someone's ass. It literally did NOT correlate to what's been happening. It showed "deep sleep" for times that I was awake and was checking my watch, it also showed REM sleep when it was clearly a deep phase, etc.

First time it happened, I let it slide and gave it another chance. Then it needed another chance, and another... and the I gave up. I ultimately lost all trust in what it was reporting.

It's still a beautiful piece of engineering, it just doesn't do what it claims to be doing :-/






I've been using the ring for a couple of months now and never these issues. Whenever I was awake (even when I didn't move), the ring correctly recorded it. When I wake up even for just a second to roll around and faintly remember it, the ring correctly tracked it.

Not saying it's the most accurate thing because it likely isn't, but it's still far better than other trackers IMO


I've been using it for a month now and have only seen this happen one night at first, but the past 2 weeks have been very accurate. Might be learning or something?
