Get Started with the Oura App

The Oura App lets you harness the potential of your Oura Ring by helping you interpret all of the health data that the ring monitors. The following steps will show you how to set up your Oura App. For further information on setting up your Oura Ring, please see Set Up an Oura Ring for the First Time.

To get started, download the free Oura App from the App Store (iOS) or the Google Play Store (Android). Make sure that your device's Bluetooth is enabled, then open the Oura App. See this article for a list of devices compatible with the Oura App.

Your Oura App is now set up. On the first day, you'll see your Activity data. Oura measures your resting heart rate, heart rate variability, and body temperature while you sleep, therefore you must wait until you've woken up the following day to see this data.
