The Motiv Ring is Now Available on Android—Here's Everything You Need to Know about the Hottest Fitness Tracker
Android users can finally join Apple customers in using the Motiv app—and the latest compatibility expansion has us falling in love all over again with this sleek fitness tracker.
What is the Motiv Ring?
In the spring of 2017 we were introduced to the Motiv Ring and loved it. We've seen several stylish fitness trackers, but this one immediately stood out (since it's a ring!). We also were a fan of it because it weighs less than a penny, comes in two colors (including a pretty rose gold), and is waterproof. However, the app was only compatible for iOS users, but now Android users can finally start using the Motiv Ring, too.
The activity tracker allows you to monitor your heart rate, track your steps, and keep track of your sleeping habits—everything you'd expect from a fitness tracker—minus the bulky wristband (and it's crafted of light-weight titanium). Plus, its lithium battery lasts for up to three days and charges within 90 minutes.
How Does it Work?
One of our first questions about the ring: how does sizing work? The company made it easy with its handy kit—here's how it works. Once you purchase the ring, you'll receive a sizing kit with seven different options to try on. Next, just pick out your desired size and color and enter your redemption code at mymotiv.com/go. The company provides free priority shipping so you should expect to receive it in two business days. Tip: Wear your trial piece a few days to ensure it's the right fit.
Unlike standard activity trackers like the Fitbit, the Motiv Ring solely displays your data on its app—another reason we couldn't wait for the Android version to release. Its memory stores your information for up to four days without needing to access the app. Once you do open the app, the ring immediately syncs the data so you can view your progress.
Where Can I Buy It?
The Motiv Ring is available at a few retailers in the rose and slate gray colors: Amazon, Nordstrom, and Motiv Ring's website. It costs $199; however, Amazon customers can receive a $50 discount when applying for an Amazon Rewards credit card.
