I believe this is the new motion sensor. Available for preorder for shipping on 04/17 https://www.amazon.com/Introducing-Ring-Smart-Lighting-Motion/dp/B07KXQ3KS5 
Dimension: 2.83 in x 2.40 in x 2.32 in
After some reading, I think it also requires a new bridge/hub.

The new motion is a different number on Best Buy site. I think this is the new contact sensor

This is the motion for the new outdoor lighting. It's not a replacement for the indoor motion sensors.

Spent an hour and some minutes on the phone with support with basic pairing issues. Never could get anything to connect. 

Hung up the phone. Went to z wave network settings for the hub and reset that. I was then able to pair all the devices. 

 

Anyway. Here is the set up I got 

And here is a Picture of an Iris V1 contact sensor verses ring.

the ring contact sensors are HUGE

Bear in mind, the Iris magnets (contact sensors) will work fine with the Ring contact sensors.  I have used them together in tight spaces where the Ring magnets will not fit.

My Ring Pro doorbell audio had degraded, although picture was still good.  Microphone on front door was so noisy that conversation could not be had.  Ring sent a new product, I assume under the ring product maintenance plan as I am an alarm subscriber, no charge. They did not ask me for any proof of purchase, or date purchased.   I had to return the original camera and power supply unit within 30 days, via prepaid shipping label.

New product works fine.

Noticed that while in live view there are microphone and speaker turn off buttons on the live view.  Pressing these can help you monitor for any feedback.  The actual volume on the microphone and speaker on the doorbell is only somewhat controllable by you, via the volume control for playback on your phone.  I see no settings on the doorbell (or app) to control this locally, but Ring technical support can access these controls (if you give them permission) and correct for any feedback issues between the microphone and speaker on the doorbell.
