The First Person I Talk to in the Morning is a Bot.

When I turn on my phone in the morning I receive a message with my Daily score and a simple follow up question. The daily score is made up of my Sleep and Readiness scores from my Oura Ring, and a “real feel” score that I entered. It’s one thing to sleep well, but to feel good is just as important! The follow up question from my ai sleep coach helps to identify patterns and allows me to create healthy new habits and kick unhelpful ones.

I’ve realised, by talking to over 100 Oura users, that everyone is truly unique. People sleep differently, are at different life stages and are dealing with different things. People also have different motivation for tracking their sleep. This can range from someone being a biohacker, to an athlete, to a student, to a woman going through menopause. Some people want to sleep better while others want to live to be over 100, and of course there is everybody in between.

My team and I have been working on this for little over a month now and after making a dashboard for the Oura Ring to increase accuracy of the scores, we’ve created an ai sleep coach to help you to improve, and not just track, your sleep. The point is to figure out how I slept and why. If my sleep score was great and I feel ready to take on anything, I’m able to note the positive things I did the day before and repeat them. I can track the things that caused me to sleep badly or feel a little run down, and avoid doing them.

As a founder my days can be intense so I don’t always have much time to work on what’s most important, like my health. This is why I really love the convenience of receiving a message and feeling like I have a coach in my pocket. I’m so excited about being able to work in this space that I want to share access with you right now!

If you use an Oura Ring, follow these steps to access your own sleep coach:

  1. Download telegram (for ios or android)
  2. Click this link on your mobile device
  3. Meet your new sleep coach!

If you have any questions or feedback, just let me know! I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
