Movana Health has unveiled the Evie Ring at CES 2024. This groundbreaking smart ring, designed exclusively for women, brings forth a new era of accessibility to health data. Priced at $269, the Evie Ring is one of the few CES 2024 featured products available for immediate purchase. This innovation caters to women seeking the capabilities of a smartwatch in a more compact wearable format.
The Evie Ring initially debuted at CES 2023 but became available for shipment only in January of the current year. Its recognition as the 2024 CES Innovation Honoree Award winner further underscores its significance. Movana Health’s CEO, John Mastrototaro, emphasizes the product’s unique focus on addressing women’s physiological intricacies. He states, “We built the Evie Ring to address the unique health needs of women at every stage of their lives. We’re raising the bar for women and wearables, and our resolve to be the only wearable also a medical device.”
AI-driven health insights
The Evie Ring, available in sizes 5-12, harnesses the power of artificial intelligence to uncover correlations across various aspects of women’s health. These encompass menstrual health, mood, energy levels, sleep patterns, and activity levels, all derived from user-generated data in the Evie app or data directly collected by the ring. This groundbreaking technology can provide insights like, “We’ve noticed your mood improves when you get 1000 more steps than your average,” or “Your sleep may be interrupted during this phase of your menstrual cycle due to a dip in progesterone.” These alerts are conveniently displayed on the Evie app.
In addition to monitoring vital health indicators during the day, the Evie Ring empowers women to log their menstrual cycles and moods during menstruation. The app can then predict the onset of the next period and fertility window, offering invaluable insights into women’s reproductive health. Movana Health plans to leverage AI further in the coming months to provide enhanced visualizations of menstrual data and bolster understanding of the intricate links between mood, the menstrual cycle, and other health factors.
Comprehensive health metrics monitoring
The Evie Ring boasts medical-grade sensors that measure critical health metrics during daytime and nighttime. These include resting heart rate, heart rate variability, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), and respiration rate. Furthermore, it provides data on hours and minutes of sleep, categorizing it into different phases such as “Awake,” “REM,” “Light,” or “Deep.” Like conventional smartwatches, the Evie Ring tracks users’ steps, distance covered, active minutes, and burned calories.
Currently, the Evie app is available exclusively on Apple iOS. However, the company has plans to release an Android version in the second quarter of 2024, ensuring accessibility to a broader user base. The app does not require any subscription fees. Users can set personalized goals for specific metrics like sleep quality, activity levels, daily step counts, or mindfulness. It also offers a “Spot Check” feature for pulse rate and blood oxygen level measurements, providing users with real-time health data. The “Daily Summary” feature presents a concise graphic summarizing the day’s performance.
Design and practicality
The Evie Ring comes in three elegant colors: gold, rose gold, and silver, allowing users to express their style preferences. It includes a portable charger with a USB-C charging cord, capable of holding more than ten ring charges. This feature ensures that users can wear the ring consistently without the hassle of frequent charging. Notably, the Evie Ring has become eligible for reimbursement through HSA/FSA funds, making it an attractive option for those considering their healthcare expenses.
Evie Ring by Movana Health signifies a significant advancement in women’s health tracking. Its AI-driven insights, comprehensive health metrics monitoring, and seamless menstrual cycle tracking empower women to take control of their well-being.
