Ōura Ring -The Only Wearable You Need



What is the Ōura Ring?

The Ōura Ring is a sleek piece of jewelry with a minimal design that uses sensor technology and an easy mobile app to track useful and personalized health statistics that come right from your body. The ring is made with non-allergenic titanium, has a width of 7.9mm, a battery life of 1 week, and a weight of 4-6 grams. During the day, the Ōura ring tracks your calorie intake, steps, activity level, idle time, and naps. The Ōura ring measures your resting heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, sleep timing and quality, movement during sleep and light, deep and REM sleep during the night.


Ōura is designed to provide both accuracy and comfort without compromise. With precise sensors, Ōura packs state-of-the-art heart rate, heart rate variability, temperature, activity, and sleep monitoring technology into a convenient, non-invasive ring.


"Ōura combines advanced sensor technology and a minimal design with an easy-to-use mobile app to deliver precise, personalized health insights straight from the most reliable source: your body."


Accuracy Above All


When you visit your doctor, there’s a reason they measure your pulse from the finger and not the wrist—it’s the ideal source for accurate and reliable data. Ōura puts this passion for accuracy into practice by:

  • Measuring from your finger: Rather than settling for the capillaries on the surface of your wrist, Ōura measures from the arteries within your fingers. The ring form factor also minimizes movement—sealing signals off from outside light without having to tighten a strap.

  • Prioritizing the Right Sensors: Ōura uses infrared light photoplethysmography (PPG), which reaches deeper than the green light LEDs found in most other wearables.

  • Taking Your Temperature: Ōura is one of the only wearables that measures your temperature directly from your skin. Many wearables don’t track body temperature at all, and others only capture the temperature of your external environment, not your body. Temperature is one of your core vital signs and can reveal key insight into your current body status.

The Ōura Ring Shows Health Information in Three Sections


Readiness- Measuring your body's signals and daily habits, providing an overall measure of recovery, and giving a score signalling your capacity to perform best mentally, physically, and emotionally.


Sleep-The Ōura Ring tracks your REM sleep, light sleep, heart rate while sleeping, and sleep timing. These stats allow you to understand your sleep quality better and offer bedtime guidance.


Activity-The Ōura Ring provides inactivity alerts, daily activity goals, and movement tracking. Helping you maintain a healthy balance of physical activity & recovery.


Tailored to You


With each person comes a unique version of “normal.” Rather than base your averages on impersonal details like age and weight, Ōura gets to know you—providing a personalized set of baselines to help you achieve your goals and reach your potential.


Ōura understands your normal and lets you know when something seems off. Whether it’s disrupted sleep after a night out, or a negative readiness trend after a stressful month at work - Ōura helps you understand what’s happening on the inside.
