Ultrahuman Ring Air empowers shift workers with dedicated mode

Ultrahuman Ring Air has introduced Shift Work Mode, a feature designed to optimize health tracking for those with irregular schedules. The only other smart ring we are aware of that allows for something similar is RingConn.

Not everyone can have a regular sleep schedule. Shift workers, such as healthcare professionals, emergency responders, and many others, face challenges in maintaining optimal health due to their irregular sleep and activity patterns. Traditional health trackers often struggle to accurately interpret data for these individuals, leading to misleading insights.

How Shift Work Mode Works

Ultrahuman’s Shift Work Mode is designed to address this issue by adapting to the unique needs of those who work outside traditional 9-to-5 schedules. When enabled, the feature takes into account the variability of sleep and activity patterns, providing more personalized and accurate data analysis.

According to Ultrahuman, this mode:

  • Adjusts baseline activities and metrics: Tailors data interpretation based on individual weekday and weekend routines.
  • Enhances sleep detection accuracy: Aligns with irregular sleep patterns for more precise insights.
  • Provides better consistency factor tuning: Reflects individual lifestyle more accurately.

To enable Shift Work Mode, simply go to the settings in the smartphone app and find the toggle button.

Personalised health tracking is the future

One other smart ring company which adopts to the needs of shift works is RingConn.

If you go to Settings > Goal Settings in its smartphone app, you have the ability to edit not only your sleep goal, but also your Bedtime Schedule. Customising the latter allows for more personalized sleep scores and recommendations. RingConn recommends to keep your Bedtime Schedule within 3 hours for consistency as this can help regulate your body’s internal clock and improve sleep health.
