Couldn’t MI6 Have Made Prince Harry A Better ‘Smart’ Ring Than Finnish Oura?

Was kind of amused to read (and see) that Prince Harry, who is proving (yet again) to be HUGE hit downunder, is now sporting an expensive, Oura ‘Balance’ ring that monitors sleep and activity.

That is good that he is wearing a tracker. But, an Oura that does SO LITTLE! That is neither here nor there. He should be wearing a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus. Now that IS a man’s tracker.

But, in his case …. He is Royalty. He can call up MI6.

Just think of what MI6 could give you in a ring? Wow.

Maybe MI6 will read this, contact me and send me a RING.

Buckingham Palace knows how to get in touch with me.

Maybe if MI6 gives me a ring I will give my nearly new Garmin Fenix 5 Plus to Prince Harry.

I am still coming to terms with the focusing on this camera. There is NO focusing ring on the lens for manual focus! I have assigned the zoom on the lens to serve as my focusing control. But it is not as FINE as turning a lens. Interesting.

I have always considered, biased as I will admit to being, that the ‘Blue Sapphire‘ (especially if it displays a star) is the world’s most beautiful gemstone and that Sri Lanka is the home to the world’s best, bluest, brightest and biggest blue sapphires. Growing up in Ceylon, 50 years ago, I saw lots of blue sapphires. Alas and alack we don’t have many anymore. I got Deanna a small stone when we got married 13 years ago, but I am not sure whether she wears it that often. That is the only blue sapphire we now possess. 18 years ago I was give a $3,000 pair of blue sapphire cufflinks — but I gave them back.

This is good for Sri Lanka. Somebody is going to be an even richer gem mine owner.
