Available Now for Oura App on iOS: Import Workouts from Apple’s Health App

September 19, 2018


In a Nutshell: Importing Workouts

  • Update the Oura app. Allow workout imports from the pop-up window.
  • New workouts from Health are automatically synced to the Oura app
  • See the workout timing, duration, name and burned calories (if your tracker calculates them) in the Oura app
  • Workouts are imported for the current day only. They’re included in your activity and recovery calculations.

Easier Workout Tracking

The ability to import workouts from Health has been a much-requested feature from our iOS users. It comes in especially handy for workouts when you can’t or don’t want to wear the ring.

In addition to importing workouts, you can now export your night-time resting heart rate and average respiratory rate values to Health. Previously you’ve been able to export your bedtime and total sleep time, lowest nocturnal resting heart rate, active energy (activity burn), your height and weight.

After you have connected the Oura app with Health, you can control what you import and export from within the Health app.

Something to Keep in Mind

Please note that some fitness and activity trackers count calories differently from Oura. The Oura ring and app calculate active calories, which only include the extra calories you burn during exercise, not your basal metabolic rate. Some fitness trackers calculate active calories + basal metabolic rate.
