An alternative to the more run-of-the-mill fitness trackers, Motiv offers all of the aspects you’re looking for in a smaller package- a ring! The Motiv ring tracks length and type of activity, heart rate, amount of burned calories, steps, distance and sleep through your finger. It syncs wirelessly with your device so if you don’t feel like taking your phone into your spinning class or on your run, just keep the ring on and all of the data will upload to the corresponding Motiv app. The ring includes chargers which you can use from your computer or keychain and the company will send a sizing kit to you before the final product to make sure it’s the right fit.
