Monday Mar 25, 2024 (00:09:21)


Senbiosys introduces a new innovative product called the VELIA smart ring, which is a discrete health tracker designed to look like a piece of jewelry. The VELIA smart ring is a product of Senbiosys, a Swiss startup that specializes in developing the next generation of health monitoring sensors. The ring features miniaturized photoplethysmography sensors, which are typically found in smartwatches like the Apple Watch, that track vital signs such as heart rate, oxygen saturation, and respiration rate.

Discrete health tracker in jewelry

One of the key features of the VELIA smart ring is its discreet design, making it suitable for both male and female users. Unlike other smart rings on the market that are bulky and masculine in design, the VELIA smart ring is designed to look like a piece of jewelry, making it appealing to a wider audience. The ring is equipped with multiple sensors placed strategically around the ring to ensure accurate and consistent tracking of vital signs, even when the ring rotates on the finger.

The VELIA smart ring focuses on three main health monitoring axes: sleep monitoring, stress monitoring, and hypertension prevention. The ring tracks sleep patterns, stages of sleep, stress levels, and tendencies towards hypertension during sleep. By analyzing this data over time, the ring can provide users with insights into their health and alert them to any potential issues that may arise. This proactive approach to health monitoring aims to help users make lifestyle changes to improve their overall well-being and prevent chronic conditions like hypertension.

The ring also comes with a companion app where users can view their vital sign data and receive alerts when necessary. Additionally, the ring's server and algorithms work in the background to analyze the data and provide users with personalized health recommendations.

Lots of capability and battery life

The VELIA smart ring is unique in that it is not only functional but also fashionable. The ring is waterproof, allowing users to wear it in the shower or while swimming without any issues. This feature adds to the convenience and versatility of the smart ring, making it suitable for daily use without any restrictions. Additionally, the ring is available in a range of sizes, from US 6 to US 14, ensuring that there is a size to fit every user comfortably.

One of the key features of the VELIA smart ring is its battery life and charging capabilities. The smallest size of the ring can last for three to four days on a single charge, while the larger sizes can last up to five days. This ensures that users can wear the ring for an extended period without having to constantly worry about recharging. Furthermore, the charging time for the ring is quick, with only 20 minutes needed for a full charge. This quick charging time adds to the convenience of the ring, allowing users to quickly recharge it while they go about their daily routine.

Development cycle and new features

In terms of development, Senbiosys is still in the early stages of bringing the VELIA smart ring to market. The company initially focused on developing sensors for B2B purposes but saw the potential in creating a consumer product. After a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, which garnered over $1.8 million in pre-orders, Senbiosys decided to move forward with the production of the smart ring. The company is currently finalizing the design with their EMS partners for industrialization and is in the process of fundraising to support mass production and delivery to backers.

Looking ahead, Senbiosys aims to launch the VELIA smart ring in Q2 2024, pending successful funding. The company is confident in the potential of the smart ring and is eager to bring it to market to meet the demand from consumers. Those interested in learning more about the VELIA smart ring can visit the Senbiosys website or the VELIA smart ring community website for more information.

Conclusion: A small but mighty device

Overall, the VELIA smart ring represents a new and innovative approach to health monitoring by combining technology with fashion. With its stylish design, waterproof capabilities, and long battery life, the smart ring offers users a convenient and effective way to track their health and well-being. By integrating health tracking capabilities into a discreet and stylish piece of jewelry, Senbiosys aims to make health monitoring more accessible and appealing to a wider audience. The VELIA smart ring has the potential to revolutionize the way we track and manage our health, providing users with valuable insights and tools to improve their overall well-being.
