What Does Oura Measure?

There are three parts that make up the Oura experience; the Oura ring, the Oura app, and Oura on the web. The three combine to provide you with a holistic picture of your health. Along with this comes peace of mind, understanding, and the knowledge to achieve your goals, no matter the size.

I. The Oura Ring

A sleek, beautiful device engineered to monitor your body's pulse, the Oura ring is the smallest and smartest wearable on the market. The ring combines advanced sensors, a desirable form factor, and an extended battery to give you the tools you need to unlock your inner potential. Learn more here.


II. The Oura App

Oura summarizes your health data into three meaningful scores that help you harness your body’s potential each and every day. Your insights are housed on Oura's home tab.

That tab is dynamic, meaning the cards move depending on the time of the day. For instance, you will see your Sleep Score in the morning and bedtime guidance in the evening when it's time to wind down for bed.
