Managing Your Notifications

Oura is designed to work without demanding your attention. By default, the app only gives you notifications about the ring battery level or inactivity. For notifications to work, the ring needs to be on your finger or positioned on the charger connected to power. Your device's Bluetooth must be enabled in order to receive notifications.

You can update notification settings at any time in your Oura app settings.

Inactivity Alerts

When enabled, inactivity alerts will remind you to get up and move after 50 minutes of inactivity. Once the alert goes off, you have 10 minutes to reset it. You can reset the alert by taking a quick  1-2-minute walk, or by doing low-level activities, such as stretching, for 2-3 minutes. 

Battery Notifications

If your ring battery is too low for sleep monitoring, the app will provide you with a low battery alert 2 - 3 hours before your bedtime.
