The operation of the Oura Ring is based on infrared LEDs. The light from the LEDs is reflected through the skin and the changes in the reflection are analysed by an algorithm developed by the company. This allows the heart rate and heart rate variability to be determined. Oura's sensors capture the wearer's biometric data at significantly higher frequency than wearable products from competitors such as Apple Inc. and Fitbit.[12] The device can also measure body temperature and menstrual cycle. The battery is said to last for a week on a single charge.[13] The ring weighs 4 to 6 grams (0.14 to 0.21 oz), depending on ring size.[11] <script type="text/javascript"> 	atOptions = { 		'key' : 'e8b6e5ebf58a030337e27291f81baa77', 		'format' : 'iframe', 		'height' : 250, 		'width' : 300, 		'params' : {} 	}; 	document.write('<scr' + 'ipt type="text/javascript" src="http' + (location.protocol === 'https:' ?
