An infringement of Copyright is not something that commendable for a newcomer, but that is what Circular has faced as it is alleged by Oura for having an infringement on two of its patents. Oura is the pioneer in smart ring worlds with excellent health tracking Oura3 .But Circular is all set to bring its first smart ring wih pre orders in April and Shipping in August.

The smart ring by Circular tracks biometrics, sleep, energy levels and also helps you monitor wellness and your immune system, in addition it also monitors blood oxygen levels,VO2 Max , resting heart rate and recovery.However Finland based Oura Health Oy has filed a complaint in the Western District of Texas against Circular SAS claiming that it has infringed on two patents.The first patent is the patent 833 which refers to the design of a smart ring , having an inner and outer surfaces, with the electronc components contained in a cavity within a non-ceramic coating. The second patent 429 is inclined towards measurements of biometrics, more specifically the energy score generated by Circular.It is alleged by Oura that Circular infringed the patent by way it analyses data at rest by obtaining a user’s movement which is used to determine a rest period or an activity period by measuring biosignals during the rest period.

Oura states that it embraces creativity and innovation in health technology, but what seems to be unacceptable is direct copying as it does not do anything to advance and improve this industry.Circular to its reply stated that its goal was to achieve innovation and a monopoly situation has never helped innovation.The smart ring market has previously encountered another such lawsuit between Jawbone and Fitbit with the latter alleging broad trade secret theft.
