Guide to Oura Ring Integration

Calories (BMR)









⚠️ = Data can be received from device, but with limitations (described below)

Keep in mind, the Oura App might not import data from Health if both apps were not opened before midnight. This might happen if "Background App Refresh" is disabled or if Lower Power Mode is enabled on your iPhone.

To prevent this from happening in the future, be sure to open both Health and the Oura App at least once during the day. Feel free to close them again at night after workouts or activities for the day have been completed.

Connecting Oura to Apple Health

On Your iPhone

  1. Open Apple Health 
  2. Tap your profile picture in the upper right hand corner of the Apple Health app Under "Privacy," select "Apps"
  3. Select "Oura"
  4. Select "Turn On All" or select which categories you'd like to share between Oura and Apple Health

Exported From Oura to Apple Health

  • Sleep Analysis: this includes both in bed and asleep times.
  • Active Energy: the calories you've burned by walking, training, or doing other activities (activity burn), excluding your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
  • Heart Rate

*Oura exports Resting Heart Rate into the Heart Rate category in Health. Resting Heart Rate at nighttime is not a valid indicator of Heart Rate as Apple Health and TeamBuildr define it.

Things to Keep in Mind 

The Oura App will only sync workouts for the current day. If you are having trouble syncing your workout from Apple Health, verify that "Date Added to Health" matches the date on which the workout occurred.

If the imported workout includes calorie data, you can't manually edit the data in the Oura App. To edit the calorie info, use the app you used to track your workout.

If calorie burn data from Health is unavailable, you can manually adjust the workout intensity in the Oura App to get a better estimate.
