First off Alexa functionality, which was introduced a few months ago, is getting an upgrade. Users can now ask Alexa about active minutes, calories, sleep and steps. They can also get answers to more in-depth questions around fitness, nutrition and sleep.
For those times you misplace your smartphone, Motiv will now provide a helping hand with a Find my iPhone function. A few quick twists of the ring will prompt your phone to chime and vibrate for 60 seconds. The upgraded social functions mean that users of the smart ring will be able to share their activity with others in the community by providing them access to their daily feed.
Finally, Motiv has announced new partnerships with Pear Sports, Plus3 and Lindora. These are three apps that allow you to set, manage, maintain and strive for health and wellness goals.
