The Groove Life Zeus Ring has reached strength and durability levels not seen before. Here are my thoughts after wearing one myself.
Anytime a brand calls their product the "toughest on the planet," it's only natural to meet it with a healthy dose of skepticism.
That declaration was made in some recent marketing efforts for the new Groove Life Zeus Ring, a silicone band being touted as the most sophisticated design Groove Life has achieved to date.
I was sent the best selling Zeus Step Ring in Deep Stone Grey, which made a great choice for someone like me who prefers subtle, understated accessories.
I've been wearing my men's ring for months now, and the best thing about it is the fact that I forgot it was there after just a week or so. It's comfortable and stays in place, meaning the comfort fit is great and the subtle design is seamlessly incorporated into my understated fashion style.
Best of all? The lifetime warranty that covers Groove rings has a no questions, no B.S. policy, so that when a "meant to break clean" ring actually does break, you'll be eligible to receive a new one.
Any company that protects their name with that kind of warranty coverage has to have confidence in their products. They did say "toughest on the planet," after all.
Not Your Normal Wedding Band
When I got married, I spent a lot of time and effort looking for my wife's engagement ring and wedding band, and didn't give much thought to mine. Like, at all.
I figured I'd get a gold or silver metal ring and call it a day. I'd never worn a ring to that point, and I wasn't crazy about the idea. It just seemed like something that would get in the way, cause my fingers to sweat and swell, and turn into something I bemoaned.
The first option I came across was a titanium ring and I went with it. Strong is good in this sense, I thought. I want a strong ring. Man, was I clueless.
In reality, I wanted (and needed) a ring that was super tough, but that would break if put under serious stress. If it (was made of titanium and) didn't break, there was a huge chance I'd experience a serious hand injury. As an avid outdoorsman, serious hunter, and dedicated angler, I put my fingers in harm's way quite often, and the metal ring was actually increasing the odds of a bad, bad situation.
Then I heard about silicone wedding rings, and got the opportunity to try a few out. They checked all the boxes, addressed some issues I wasn't even considering, and I was won over.
But after closely examining and wearing the Groove Life Zeus Ring for several months now, I'd say I've found the ideal band for putting on my ring finger. I'll explain why using some of the Zeus Ring's best features.
Groove Life Zeus Ring Features
Among all the new products recently released by Groove Life, it's the Zeus Rings that seem to be the most feature-packed. Years of research and dedication to design helped shape the Zeus Ring into what it is today, and it's definitely earning that "toughest on the planet" title.
First of all, the important thing to realize about Zeus Rings is that they are basically three rings combined into one. They consist of the medical grade silicone outer band, the embedded Zeus anti-stretch band, and the inner band featuring air flow grooves.
The anti-stretch band helps Zeus Rings keep their shape but also include a special safety-break point, allowing for a quick and clean separation if it's subjected to serious strain. The inner grooves allow air in and moisture out, solving a significant complaint about the more typical metal rings. "Improved breathability" isn't something you'd expect in a traditional ring, but neither are most of the other features.
If Groove Life keeps it up, the old metal rings of the past will lose their spot at the top of the wedding band hierarchy, and be replaced by durable, capable silicone bands like the Zeus.
All of the materials used to create a Zeus Ring are medical-grade, and you can opt for a step edge or beveled edge in a variety of colors and ring sizes. There's also a Thin Ring option for those who are looking for a smaller, thinner ring.
Overall, the Zeus Ring from Groove Life has managed to impress me (and my partner, who says she wants one of her own!) more than I thought possible, especially considering how little I assumed I cared about a wedding band. I guess I just didn't care because I didn't have a great ring, one meant to fit me and my lifestyle so well.
I'd recommend the Zeus to anyone, even if they didn't work with their hands much at all. If you workout, travel, or just like a well-built product, this ring is going to work for you.
