"Willsleep have you ever heard of or tried the Lookee ring sleep monitor? What do you think if that product? It's $20 cheaper than the wellue ring O2 and just wanted to know if it's worth it or just buy the wellue ring. I was looking into the new wellue ring but you said that you prefer the older one? Do they both do the same thing and the only difference is battery life?
 

I can't repost that rule violation links section,  I cant afford any more points off my forum license to post.  Lol.
 

"Willsleep have you ever heard of or tried the Lookee ring sleep monitor? What do you think if that product? It's $20 cheaper than the wellue ring O2 ..." 

Before the try underlying owner/manufacturer Viatom decided to launch the Wellue brand and sell direct I purchased the same products from an American company re-branding the same product.  

Since Wellue launched I have been disappointed in the lack of aggressiveness of the brand I purchase.  

People who buy Wellue now have access to features I do not and I thus far see no reason to expect this gap to do anything but grow larger.   So personally I would need a feature gain to buy other than Wellue .. maybe worth over $100 to me.  Otherwise, feeling my present pain on this topic, I would just purchase Wellue for $20 more.

Did that answer your question?

LOL I understand and don't want toy to loose anymore points. I actually ended up purchasing the Looke sleep monitor for your finger. It was on Amazon for $149 and appears to be accurate. Have you heard of it?

Ya ok..  I checked the lookee website, lookee on Amazon and the Amazon entry for O2 Ring.  

Just be quick.. me personally, I would quick cancel the Amazon Lookee purchase and pop the extra $20 for the O2 Ring ...

... because for $20 more there is less vendor risk AND you get the ability to transfer data down to your PC and into OSCAR if you want.  

Because as you can see here at the link below on the Lookee Web site it costs $34.95 upgrade to buy the ability to download Lookee Ring data to your PC (and then OSCAR if you want to).  

http://xxx ... No! No! Bad! Commercial Link   Don't do it!  ...    Lol.

Unfortunately it already arrived at my door lol. I new about the software not coming with it. I don't own a pc anyways which is why I wasn't that concerned about that. From my understanding, the wellue is not compatible with OSCAR correct?

OH and what do you mean by less vendor risk?

"From my understanding, the wellue is not compatible with OSCAR correct?"
Not having a O2Ring I am not the best forum expert on this ... my understanding is people are downloading to the PC and then running a python script to format the data to be OSCAR friendly and then loading into OSCAR.  

Is you search all forum posts for O2Ring I believe you will find posts on this topic.

"OH and what do you mean by less vendor risk?"

What I wrote here.  The biggest frustration is there I have not found a way to get the data off my iPx device at all.  My vendor does not even offer the PC software for purchase at an extra cost.  No more energy behind the product.  Like they saw Wellue coming and got scared off.
