Tips for Removing a Stuck Ring

If you're having trouble removing your Oura Ring, try the tips below.

  1. Gently twist the ring to try and remove it from your finger.
  2. Hold your hand above your head until your blood pressure lowers, then try removing the ring. This should help decrease any swelling in your finger.
  3. Use cold water and a small amount of soap, wet your finger, then slowly twist the ring to remove it.
  4. You can also use lotion to lubricate the ring and your hand, then try once more to gently twist the ring off.

In case of emergency, or if you are experiencing pain and discomfort, cut the ring with a ring cutter from the palm side of the finger— the ring’s thinnest point. This prevents the battery from being cut. Don't cut along the ridge of the Balance model or on the flat plane of the Heritage model.

The lithium-ion polymer battery shouldn't have electrolyte flowing, but in case electrolyte comes in contact with your skin or eyes, flush it out with water and seek immediate medical attention.

If you are uncomfortable cutting the ring on your own or don’t have the means to do so, please contact a healthcare professional.
