However, she critiques the usefulness and accuracy of the data provided, expressing confusion and disappointment over the lack of actionable insights derived from the statistics. She also mentions the need for a subscription to access full app functionalities. Flex expresses concern over the potential for developing a dependency on the device for health and wellness insights. Overall, Flexmami's review is mixed, highlighting the novelty of the Oura Ring but questioning its practicality and effectiveness in contributing to a better understanding of one's health.
