Frequently asked questions

What is Ōura

Ōura is an elegant ring that measures your body’s reactions. It´s seamless, effortless and comfortable on your hand, 24/7. The ring automatically shares its buffered findings and data refined with proprietary algorithms with the mobile app which gives you personalized, actionable guidance. The app combines both your physiological and behavioral data, as well as your inputs on how you feel.

On which finger should I wear the ring ?

Any finger on your hand is good. We prefer wearing it on the non-dominant hand, but it automatically applies to your selection of hand by adjusting activity algorithms accordingly.

What sizes and colors are available?

Ōura will be available in US sizes 6–13. Colors available are Mirror Black, Arctic White and Stealth Black.

What is the ring made of?

Ōura is made of a high-tech, scratch resistant ceramic compound called Zirconia (ZrO2). The inside molding is made of medical grade, non-allergenic, nickel free, non-metallic material that makes the ring feel very comfortable and soft on finger.

Is it waterproof?

Yes, it is waterproof up to 5 ATM (50 meters).

How do I keep the ring clean?

You can wash the ring in water with a mild soap solution if needed.

How is the ring charged?

Ōura comes in a ring box that is also the charger. Just place your ring in the box to start charging. A dim white led light indicates the charging status.

How often will I need to recharge the ring?

You need to charge the ring once every three days, for only 30-60 minutes.

Another alternative is to charge the ring 15 minutes daily: place the ring in the charger in the morning or evening while taking a shower or eating breakfast. Make it a habit and wear the ring at all other times. The charging box is a design item that looks good displayed anywhere.

When will Ōura be available?
