Pre-Order Update #11

It’s great to see that more people are getting the ring each day. We have shipped half the orders we estimated would be shipped during the 3rd or 4th week of July.

We are now shipping more orders per week than ever before and we’ll continue to rapidly increase the amount of rings shipped. However, with 8 different sizes, 4 different colors and 2 different designs we have 64 different variations of the Oura ring. This makes it difficult to predict the exact shipment date of your specific ring. We will do our best to communicate our estimates with you.

What we have done during July to speed up shipments:

Great Images on Instagram

Many of you have been asking what the rings look like in action. There’s a bunch of great images from you in Instagram with the hashtag #ouraring. Have a look! Especially this wonderful post has a series of images on what you can expect from the ring and the package.

We’re looking forward to seeing more of your first impressions and reading your reviews. Tag us at @ouraring and use the hashtag #ouraring so that we and everyone else can see them.

To those who have just got the ring: we’d love to see some unboxing videos!

When will I get my ring?

For the latest shipment estimates, see this page:

Please note that new rings are being shipped out each weekday, on a first-come-first-served basis. Here’s the updated shipment estimate as of Aug 3.

Pre-order placed in 2017

Estimated shipment: Majority of shipments sent by 2nd to 3rd week of August / Last shipments sent by August 31st.

Note: More specific models like Balance Diamond may be delayed to late August / early September.

Pre-order placed in 2018 (before or on May 31):

Moving forward, we will give shipment estimates in these Pre-Order Updates and on this Oura Orders and Shipping FAQs page instead of private, order-specific estimates. Now that our production capacity has significantly increased, we hope your ring reaches you before our updated shipment estimate.
