Lancaster-based Jay Group has been selected as the third-party logistics provider that will store, handle and ship Movano Health’s Evie ring, the first medical grade health wearable designed for women.
Through this partnership, Movano will leverage Jay Group’s fulfillment analytics and operations to support the planned November launch of Evie, currently under Federal Drug Administration review.
Fitting on a woman’s finger, Evie ring monitors her heart rate, heart rate variability, oxygen saturation level, menstrual cycle, sleep quality and activity level.
“The announcement from Movano to partner with Jay Group represents a significant differentiator in the 3PL industry,” Scott Chamberlain, director of business development at Jay Group, wrote in an email. “Sophisticated brands like Movano need advanced fulfillment solutions. The partnership says a lot about Jay Group’s commitment to partnering with mission-driven, tech-forward brands like Movano, as well as an overall increase in market demand for these types of products.
“Movano joins a portfolio of recent brands focused on providing better health and wellness experiences for women who have chosen Jay Group as their 3PL fulfillment partner of choice. These brands include Sequel Tampon, Mosie Baby, Phenology and Sunny Period.”
Jay Group describes itself as the longest running, privately held provider of advanced fulfillment and logistics services in the U.S.
Under this agreement, Pleasanton, California-based Movano Health plans to store inventory of the Evie ring in Jay Group’s FDA-registered fulfillment centers across the U.S., a release said. Initially, Evie will be available for purchase online with plans to expand into brick-and-mortar retailers.
Jay Group will receive the orders placed online. After completing their order, consumers will receive a ring sizer kit that will be collated, picked and shipped to the purchaser’s front door by Jay Group. Once the consumer’s ring size is identified, the consumer’s ring order will return to Jay Group to fulfill, ship and complete.
