Included in the NBA’s plan to restart the 2019-2020 season at Walt Disney World in Orlando is that players will be given the option to wear Oura smart rings to detect if and when they begin showing symptoms of COVID-19.
The rings can reportedly forecast and predict when players begin to experience COVID-related symptoms up to three days in advance. Players will have full access to the data collected on them as well, which will be studied by scientists at the University of Michigan to monitor for symptoms. The NBA regular season is set to restart on July 30.
The rings are also available to purchase on the Oura ring website and look to range in price from $299 to $399 depending on the make and model
