Enable Inactivity Alerts

Inactivity alerts are friendly reminders to stretch your legs a bit after long periods of inactivity. Oura offers guidance through inactivity alerts to help you to get some movement at least once every hour of the day. You can reset an inactivity alert by taking a brief walk, stretching, or partaking in light activity or a workout.

Keep in mind that if you move every hour and keep your total inactivity time under 8 hours each day, you’ll see improvements to your Activity Score.

Enabling Inactivity Alerts

To enable inactivity alerts, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to the menu Icon_Bars.png in the upper left-hand corner of the Home Icon_Home.png tab.
  2. Tap Settings Icon_Settings.png > Notifications. 
  3. Toggle the button next to Inactivity alerts on.

If Inactivity alerts are enabled, the toggle button will appear in blue. If your screen appears as it does in the image below, this is evidence that you’ve successfully enabled inactivity alerts.
