It has been announced that the Oura app has been awarded the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2018 for high quality design and creativity. The Oura ring also received the Red Dot Award 2018 for Product Design earlier in 2018.
Finnish wearable health tech company Oura Health has been awarded the 2018 Red Dot Award for Communication Design for their redesigned Oura app, available on iOS and Android. A jury of 24 industry experts awarded the app for its creativity and high quality. This is the second Red Dot Award in 2018 for the Oura solution.
Dr Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award, stated: “All those who progress through the tough adjudication process to garner a Red Dot have every reason to be proud of themselves, as the jury grants our award only to creations of high design quality.”
The Oura ring and the free Oura app help users improve their sleep and align their lifestyle to their natural circadian rhythm. The award-winning sleep improvement solution gives users personal guidance and feedback based on their physiology and sleep habits.
Kari Kivelä, CTO, Co-Founder and Head of Design at Oura, explained: “Almost anyone can benefit from paying more attention to how well they sleep. Together with the Oura ring, the Oura app gives users unique insights into their physiology, such as ideal bedtimes and long-term body temperature trends. We’re proud and humbled that both the Oura ring and the Oura app have been recognised for their high-quality design.”
Teemu Kurppa, Oura’s CTO, Software, finished: “We redesigned the Oura app from the ground up. Our aim from the beginning was to make an app that truly helps users improve their sleep. It had to be easy-to-use, insightful but also beautiful. The work isn’t over yet but we’re at a great place to start taking it even further.”
The Oura ring is available starting from $299.
