Charging Your Ring & Best Practices

This article includes information on how to charge your ring, along with answers to frequently asked questions.

Charging Your Ring

To charge your ring, connect the USB cord to the ring's charger and plug the USB into a power source (e.g., a laptop, or wall outlet). Then, rest your ring on the charging dock. The LED light on the charger will begin pulsing after you've set the ring on the dock. When the light stops pulsing, your ring is fully charged.

If the LED light does not illuminate, ensure the charger's cable is properly connected. Double-check that your ring is positioned correctly, ensuring good contact between your ring and the dock.

Best Practices & FAQs

What can I expect from my battery? 

Batteries are complex and a number of variables contribute to battery life and performance. All rechargeable batteries are consumables and have a limited lifespan, so their capacity and performance will gradually decline with time.

The average length that a fully charged ring will last is 4-7 days. That duration depends on various factors, such as; the age of ring, use of ring features (e.g., Moment), and other factors that result in higher levels of battery consumption.

Should I let my ring's battery hit 0% before charging? What’s best for battery optimization?

In short, no. We recommend keeping your battery above 40%. Charging the battery a bit each day is a good habit to adopt.

Can I damage my ring's battery?

Certain factors may lead to battery damage. They are listed below.

  • - Leaving the battery fully charged (on the charger) for a period of time greater than one week. Charging while at maximum capacity for extended periods of time can shorten battery life substantially.
  • - Long exposure to extreme temperatures (hot/freezing). 
  • - Allowing your ring’s battery to reach 0% can affect its longevity.

If you suspect damage has occurred, or you've noticed a drain in battery, please submit a request here. Our team will be in touch as soon as time allows.

Will I damage my ring's battery if I don't charge it fully?

No. Partially charging your ring will not result in damage. However, we recommend charging your ring until the battery is full whenever possible. This will result in optimal performance.

Things to Keep in Mind

If you plan on taking a break from wearing your ring, we recommend placing your ring in Power Saving Mode before storing it to protect the battery capacity from deteriorating. For more information on how to store your ring, please reference this article.
