BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AURA Devices today introduced AURA Strap 2, a fully redesigned and re-engineered accessory band that provides a totally new health and wellness data tracking experience that allows users to set goals and track their workout performance on their Apple Watch, as well as launched AURA Plus, a new subscription-based service offering advanced analytics, workout content and the soon-to-be added feature of live chats with certified trainers.
By performing bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), which measures how a person’s body changes as a result of exercise, AURA Strap 2 is the only wearable device that provides fat, muscle and water balance measurement on the Apple Watch. From there, via AURA App version 3.0, users receive insights, personalized recommendations and goal setting and management functions to assist them in optimizing their fitness performance.
"The new AURA Strap 2 delivers the ultimate user experience in body composition and water levels tracking. The next-gen accessory is the most accurate Apple Watch device that we've ever built. New features and design will help our users achieve their fitness goals much more efficiently and get the most out of their workouts and exercise regimens," states Stas Gorbunov, CEO of AURA Devices.
Created by an international group of passionate and bold inventors, engineers and scientists committed to changing the worlds of health and fitness, the AURA Strap 2 improves upon the first generation of the device by delivering better fit, additional functionality and an enhanced user experience:
- AURA Strap 2 is 20% slimmer and 5% narrower than the original AURA Strap
- A more streamlined measurement process now requires only one-touch to initiate measurement, rather than three actions required with the original AURA Strap
- The new architecture captures 16 times more data points than the first generation of the AURA Strap. This improvement brings the accuracy of the AURA Strap 2 to 95% of a DEXA-scan, the gold standard of BIA measurement
- AURA Strap 2 attaches to the Apple Watch via new stretchable sport loops, rather than clasps, resulting in not only a sleeker design, but a more seamless process when putting it on and removing it
The AURA Strap 2, available in the color black exclusively for Apple Watch, Series 3 or later, retails for $149 and is available on auradevices.io and at select retailers.

AURA Plus costs $9.99 per month, or $79.99 for an annual subscription. AURA Devices users receive a free six-month trial of AURA Plus. Visit auradevices.io/plus for more information and to sign up.
