  • Great at sleep tracking

    • By Jason,
    • Dec 4, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer
    Overall Experience:

    I’ve had the ring for 6 months now and find the sleep tracking to be very accurate.

    There have been times while watching TV in bed where I was completely still that the ring recorded me as in light sleep, but if you think about the algorithm they use to record sleep, my body was telling the ring it was asleep via the biofeedback.

    I lift heavy, and the app does a good job tracking activity if you app your workouts in the activity section.

    This is a great product and I ordered the new ring 5 minutes after it went on pre-sale.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend


  • Basic sleep tracking not accurate

    Overall Experience:

    I've been wearing my Ring for a little over a week and have found the data to be very questionable. The sleep tracking is obviously not accurate since it seems to log all prone time as asleep. This morning I woke at 4:15 am and went to the bathroom and never went back to sleep, but the Ring indicates I slept again before getting out of bed for good. This is pretty common, so I don't have any trust in the measurements the Ring is reporting.

    I also find the activity tracking suspect and sometimes the Ring doesn't even transfer data to the phone. This device is definitely not ready for prime time. It's a shame because I really like the idea of self-quantification and how it can help.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • More accurate sleep tracking than the Emfit QS, but useless for activity tracking

    Overall Experience:

    I've been using the Oura Ring for about two months. I've found that it has reliably indicated poor deep sleep whenever I'd sleep with my girlfriend. However, I've also seen it and (blogged about it) detect me in light sleep when I was on the phone late at night.

    As for activity tracking, it's still a bulky ring, and it makes certain activities difficult (lifting, for example). I swam with it, but I'd take it off for any barbell work. Also, tech support told me that activity tracking plays only a very small role in the app's calculations.

    From personal experience, readiness did not always correlate with actual performance in the gym.

    Final note: The skin under the ring tends to "marinate" if you keep it on for more than several hours. As a sleep monitor, it can provide good insights. I wouldn't use it as an activity monitor.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend


  • Doesn't last long

    Overall Experience:

    I've had my Ring for four weeks, and it's already cracked. It worked for a few days after I cracked it, then became sporadic and finally quit working within 24 hours. I cracked the Ring doing burpees. I read several in depth reviews online indicating it was the best tracker for fitness training, including CrossFit. I would strongly discourage using this Ring while doing any such activities.

    It is waterproof, which is why I bought it, now I wished I'd have waited and saved more money for the Apple Watch Series 2 and the Beddit sleep monitor. I will say I do prefer the inactivity monitor over the Stand rings on the Apple Watch but found the stats on the Readiness Screen of the Oura Ring to be useless. There is no way to delete and download the data, and they supposedly work into the algorithm to calculate your readiness for activity, but I was under the impression I'd be able to monitor body temperature better not just of an average. The labels are so small, and the increments are so close together you can't really decipher any details on the data.

    Anyhow, that's my two cents, but you'd have to decide what you really want to use it for. I'm active and use my hands a lot. I don't recommend it for people like me.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • Amazing technology. A lot of potential!

    Overall Experience:

    The technology that they've been able to pack into the small ring is incredible - heart rate, heart wavelength, body temperature, motion. It is so much more accurate than any wrist monitor.

    The ring itself is amazing. Where this product is weakest, though, is with the app. Since the product just came out, they have some work to do with the app (it's not even version 1.0 of the app yet). It sounds like they are overhauling it now. Looking forward to seeing what they will do!

  • Activity and sleep data issues

    • By Bob Rudell,

    Overall Experience:

    I was a Kickstarter backer of Oura and had high hopes for it. Now that Oura has shut down their forums, there is no place to provide feedback directly to them. The biggest issue with Oura is that the activity intensity is NOT captured accurately; consequently, the Activity and Readiness scores suffer from "garbage in/garbage out."

    After a recent firmware update, I pulled my Oura out of the box to see if it had improved its activity monitoring. My data over this two week period with ten intense workouts (averaging one hour on an elliptical with average heart rate of 134 and average max heart rate of 161. I'm a 68-year-old male with a calculated max heart rate of 152) were all recorded as "medium" by Oura.

    Walking my dog for 20 minutes was actually rated higher on Oura's activity scale than my elliptical workouts! The Activity and Readiness percent do not appear to bear any correlation to the activities I actually engage in. The Activity percent was actually HIGHER on the four days I did not do my intense workout, and the Readiness percent was unchanged. Go figure. I cannot recommend Oura for anyone whose active workouts are not captured by Oura's accelerometer. It won't capture static activities like bike riding, ellipticals or even yoga. Dog walking it does capture!

    Oura fares better on the sleep measures which I compared to the recent sleep data added to Fitbit. Over the same two week period, Oura averaged five hours 35 minutes of sleep and Fitbit averaged 5:42 (I don't need much sleep).

    The breakdowns by Deep, REM, Light, and Awake time were another matter. Awake time was pretty equal, averaging 47 minutes with Oura to 45 with Fitbit, and Deep sleep time was not too far off at 26 with Oura, and 46 with Fitbit. The REM and Light sleep times were quite disparate; Oura REM at one hour, 55 minutes average, Fitbit at 1:17, Light sleep time was 3:13 with Oura and 3:39 with Fitbit. So the total REM/Light was pretty close between the two devices at 5:08 Oura and 4:57 with Fitbit. So there is clearly a difference in the algorithms used to track the different sleep categories.

    For me, Oura is going back in the box as it simply is a LOUSY activity tracker that gives bad data in its Activity and Readiness measures. And as a Sleep tracker (which was one of the touted features of Oura), it's data is directionally accurate but hard to trust since they don't provide any idea how it is calculated. I will rely on my Fitbit Blaze. It is a cheaper, better activity tracker with sleep data that is similarly directionally accurate.

    It's too bad. Oura is a great concept that simply can't deliver due to its inability to track the most important input to its data; the intensity of your activities.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend


  • Ring showed very thin crack, damaged the skin on my finger!

    Overall Experience:

    Sorry, I don't have another way to inform this company that my Oura Ring seriously damaged the skin on my finger. It's been healing since the end of March and still isn't completely healed. Others should be warned about this. I hope I will get an email from Oura to discuss this issue. It's troubling not to have a way to contact the company.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
