Make every workout count by syncing Oura with Apple Health.
You can sync data between Oura and your other health and activity apps by connecting Oura with Apple Health. Enable this connection during your initial setup or later on in your Oura settings.
To start importing activities from Apple Health, enable the connection in your Oura settings:
To ensure workouts from your favorite apps are imported to Oura, make sure they are also connected to Apple Health.
This is an opt-in only feature.
Data go in both directions between Oura and Apple Health. This flow includes any other third-party apps connected to Apple Health (e.g., Medisafe or Zoma).
Based on your preferences, Oura can export the following:
Based on your preferences, Oura can import the following:
Personal information: height and weight
Workout details: activity type, start time, duration, and calories
When Oura detects a new activity from Apple Health, it will appear on both your home and Activity tabs. You also have the option to add workouts you completed while not wearing your ring.
Your Apple Health data syncs only after opening Oura.
Oura only imports data for workouts completed on the current day. Workouts from previous days cannot be imported.
If workouts imported from Apple Health include calorie data that exceeds Oura’s measures, those calories will be added to Oura’s calorie burn estimates. Imported calorie data cannot be changed in Oura. To edit calorie details, use the original app used to track your workout.
If the imported workout does not include calorie data, you can manually adjust the workout intensity (low, medium, or high) in Oura to better estimate your calorie burn.
Workout apps use different methods to estimate your calorie burn.
Oura only logs active calories as part of your Activity Goal—meaning the extra calories that you burn during exercise beyond your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) calorie burn. Some workout apps include both your active calories and BMR in their calculations for calories burned during a workout.
Fitness apps that take BMR into account when calculating calorie burn for a workout will export this calorie count to Apple Health. As a result, their calorie burn values may be slightly higher compared to those Oura provides.
