Ultrahuman Introduces Revolutionary Smart Ring Tracker for Enhanced Household Wellness

Indian wearable startup Ultrahuman is getting into the smart home game. By capturing more data-points it can link to its smart ring users, Ultrahuman may be able to improve the accuracy of its algorithms — to give its personalized advice an edge over rivals. The same is true with the Ultrahuman Home: There’s no subscription required for the service; just a one-off hardware purchase. Since the launch of the Ultrahuman Ring Air, its sleeker second gen smart ring which we reviewed last summer, momentum has been growing, with sales exceeding 10,000 units last month, per Kumar. There is also a hardware button on the device that will let users switch off the mic when they wish.

Introducing Ultrahuman Home: The Revolutionary New Smart Home Device from Indian Wearable Startup

This year at CES, Ultrahuman, an Indian wearable startup, has made a bold entrance into the smart home market with the announcement of their latest product – Ultrahuman Home.

Design

The Ultrahuman Home boasts a sleek design that resembles a metallic Wi-Fi router or Apple TV, making it a stylish addition to any home. But its true potential lies in its functionality as a connected hardware, designed to monitor the “health” of your home environment.

Functionality

Sensors incorporated in the device allow for monitoring of natural and artificial light, air pollution, noise, humidity, and smoke levels in the room where it’s installed. This data is then translated into an easy-to-understand “space score” and valuable insights that are accessible through the Ultrahuman app’s new “home” tab.

Targeted Towards Quantified Self Trend

Ultrahuman’s existing wearables have been consistently targeted towards the “quantified self” trend, where sensors in the hardware collect data that is then analyzed by the app to provide personalized lifestyle advice. The ultimate goal is to help users improve their overall fitness and wellness.

“The future of Ultrahuman Home is not only to act as a supplement to our existing smart ring, but to also function as a standalone in-home tracker that assesses and improves the overall healthiness of your living environment.” – Mohit Kumar, CEO and Founder of Ultrahuman

Smart Home Integration

In the words of Mohit Kumar, the Ultrahuman Home is poised to be a game-changer in the world of home automation. With plans to integrate with protocols like IFTTT, the device can potentially power automated decisions to improve the user’s overall wellness. For example, it could adjust the air conditioning to promote deeper and more restorative sleep by analyzing temperature levels in the bedroom.

Apart from temperature, the device also takes into account humidity and light levels in the room, providing personalized suggestions for a healthier living space.

Expanding Beyond Wearables

Ultrahuman’s foray into environmental monitoring places them ahead of their wearable competitors such as Oura and Whoop, who have primarily stayed within their lane. By capturing more data points, Ultrahuman can enhance the accuracy of their algorithms and provide a competitive edge in personalized advice.

“Just like diet and physical activity, the environments we spend time in can significantly impact our health. The Ultrahuman Home aims to bridge the gap to a more holistic approach towards wellness.” – Mohit Kumar, CEO and Founder of Ultrahuman

What sets Ultrahuman apart from its rivals is their no-subscription approach. With no ongoing commitment to use the tracking software, the devices are often purchased as gifts for friends and family. This has helped to expand their user base, supported further by the availability of their products at offline retail stores.

Continuing Momentum

Sales for the second generation sleeker Ultrahuman Ring Air have exceeded 10,000 units in the last month alone, giving the company a significant boost. Return use and gifting are credited as the driving force behind this momentum.

Price and Privacy

The Ultrahuman Home is priced at $349 and is designed to monitor and track the environment of a single room. Privacy concerns have been addressed by restricting audio data processing to the device itself, with no data being uploaded to external servers. There is also a hardware button to disable the microphone, and an airplane-mode style toggle for wi-fi and Bluetooth, allowing users to limit their exposure to radio frequencies.

The Ultrahuman Home offers a promising glimpse into the future of smart home devices, providing a holistic and personalized approach to wellness in our living spaces.
