Why a Ring | Discover the Ultimate Wearable

Why a ring? Why is a ring better than a wrist-based device to track my sleep? Why is the Oura ring more accurate than a watch? How does Oura ring help me perform better?

Why Choose a Ring?

At Oura, we believe precise, accurate measurement of your body’s data is vital, as you use the information to make important lifestyle decisions. That’s why choosing a ring to track your sleep is not just a stylish choice, it’s also the smart one.

When it comes to wearable devices, the ring on your finger means constant, snug contact against a strong pulse point on your body – stronger than that of your wrist. Highly accurate sensors on Oura ring quietly measure body signals such as your resting heart rate (RHR), heart rate variability (HRV), respiration rate, body temperature, and movement.

Since Oura ring is so comfortable, it can be worn around the clock like a wedding band or another precious keepsake. No matter how much you shift or roll during a night’s rest, Oura ring stays in constant contact, providing you with precise, reliable data throughout the night. With our advanced technology, Oura can capture sleep data comparable to tests in clinical sleep labs.

Ready For You

Oura ring is ready for your life. It’s scratch-resistant, waterproof and designed to follow you through your most intense workouts and your quietest moments of introspection. Oura ring knows when you’re moving, and when you’re not. It knows when you’re sleeping and when you’re awake.

The Oura mobile app connects seamlessly with the ring for a complete view of your daily fitness and recovery. With clear, constant data about your body flowing, you’re setting up to live life at your most ready. Now, you’re able to accurately and intelligently understand your body and its response to your entire way of life – not just periods of intense workouts.

Every time you open the app, you’ll receive summaries on your daily sleep, activity and readiness, along with the trends in your scores over time.
