Chronotypes are being added to Oura’s smart ring, but not the adorable animals

Likewise, Oura introduces a biological clock function. Based on your time pattern, the app will tell you how your sleep pattern fits into an “optimal” sleep schedule. Finally, Oura plans to include time windows for better focus, activity, and rest. The latter is like Rise Science, a sleep tracking app that recommends certain times of the day for activities and tasks based on your circadian rhythm.

Starting this week, Oura users will be assigned time patterns based on body temperature, sleep duration, and physical activity over a three-month period – basically, whether you’re an early riser or get up early. Traditionally, time patterns are associated with four animals – wolves, lions, bears or dolphins – depending on the animals’ natural sleeping habits. Wearable companies have exercised some creative freedom on this front to reflect different data models, but Oura still follows a simpler approach. Instead, the app will tell you whether your body prefers mornings or evenings and how strong that relationship is. For example, early risers can be classified as early morning, early morning or late morning. Each also comes with some tips to help users get the most out of their natural rhythm.

Speaking of sleep schedules, Oura adds support for people with irregular sleep schedules, such as shift workers or those who prefer alternating sleep rather than a single eight-hour block. These less common sleep patterns will now be taken into account when tabulating your total sleep score. To complement the new sleep features, Oura adds a new measure of sleep regularity. As the name suggests, this metric is a measure of how often a user sleeps over a two-week period. This metric is then fed into a Readiness Score, which is Oura’s way of telling users how much effort they need to put in on a given day. The Oura app is also coming in more colors. Instead of using blue and red to indicate “good” or “bad” progress on a given metric, users will begin to see yellow to indicate “fair” progress. Most of these features will be available for the Gen 2 and Gen 3 versions of Oura Ring. However, the biological clock and time pattern feature will be exclusive to Gen 3 and will require an active subscription. The same goes for Oura’s new sleep arrangement algorithm, which is currently in beta.
