Can I Choose to Wear My Oura Ring Only at Night?
For those solely interested in monitoring their sleep, wearing the Oura Ring at night is an option. However, if you choose to only wear your ring at night, please know you may not be accessing your most optimal experience with Oura.
Your Oura Experience May Seem Incomplete
Because Oura is tailored to you, the more you wear your ring, the more your scores, contributors, and data insights will accurately reflect your true body signals. By wearing your Oura Ring 24/7, you allow Oura to personalize your data insights and overall experience to a maximum degree. By choosing to wear your ring only at night and not during the day, you may have a different experience than those who wear their ring 24/7.
You May Miss Out on Useful Activity Data
Oura measures activity during the day, which plays an integral role in your sleep quality and efficiency. In your Activity tab, Oura provides you with daily goals and inactivity alerts to keep you consistently on target toward peak balance. Healthy movement throughout the day is essential for proper nervous system stimulation, which ties directly into your sleep and recovery status.
Something as simple as being reminded to stand up, stretch, and get your blood flowing each hour of the day can have tremendous gains in your Sleep and Readiness Scores. For Readiness in particular, keep in mind that by choosing not to wear your ring during the day, your contributors may be impacted—given Activity Balance and Previous Day Activity are two metrics that weigh into your overall Readiness Score.
