Getting Started with iOS

Welcome to the Oura Community. Here's what you'll need to get started:

  • Your Oura Ring
  • The Oura Ring charger and USB cable
  • A USB power source
  • An iPhone (iOS 11.0 or higher)
  • WiFi connection

Have everything? Great, let's get started.

Below is a video overview of setting up your new ring if you don't have an Oura account. If you have the First Generation Oura Ring, watch this video.

Please follow the steps below to get started with your Oura Ring:

1: Download the Oura App from the App Store

Download the Oura App here. Or search for "Oura Ring" in the App store. 

2: Connect the USB Cord to the Oura Charging Dock

Connect the small end (USB-C) of the USB cable to the charger.

3: Connect the USB Cord 

You can power the Oura charger from any USB port. Connect the large end (USB-A) to a USB port on your laptop, a USB dock or your phone's charger, for example.

4: Place Your Oura Ring on the Charger

The sensor bumps inside the ring must be on the side of the USB cable so that the ring falls snugly into place.

5: Ensure the Charger's LED Light is Activated 

When the charger is blinking slowly, the ring is charging. If you don't see a light, check that the USB cable is connected and that the ring is snugly in place.

6: Open the Oura App

Follow the instructions in the app:

  • Tap Create an account
  • Read and accept the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy
  • Choose an email and a password for your account
  • Tap Create account
  • Tap Connect to search for your ring. It should be nearby and in the charger.
  • When you see your ring, tap Connect
  • Choose your notification preferences
  • Choose whether you want to connect to the Health app.
  • Add your personal info. We recommend doing this to get the most accurate feedback from the app. Tap Done.

7: Charge Your Oura Ring

Leave the ring on the charger until the LED light ceases blinking and glows steadily. This is an indication your Oura Ring is fully charged. 

8: Begin Wearing Your Oura Ring 

During the first weeks of use the Oura ring and the app get to know you. You'll see your nightly metrics in the Oura app after the first night you've slept while wearing the ring.

You're ready to go! If you would like to learn more about what your Oura Ring can do, have a look at the Oura Blog or browse
