App Integration Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble syncing data between Oura and a third-party app, please try the following troubleshooting steps.

Reset Integration

Please make sure your phone is on the latest version of its operating system, and follow these steps:

  1. Open the Oura App

  2. Tap the menu icon in the top left corner

  3. Tap Settings

  4. Scroll down to "Data Sharing" and select the appropriate app integration

  5. Turn all the settings switches off and then turn them back on

As a final step, turn your device on and off again before trying to import another workout through the integration.

Reinstall Oura App

To backup and reinstall the Oura App:

  1. Open the Oura App

  2. Select the menu icon in the top left-hand corner

  3. Tap Settings

  4. Scroll down to "Account"

  5. Select "Back up all data"

  6. When the back up is finished, uninstall and reinstall the Oura App

Other Troubleshooting

If you link your Oura App to a third party app such as Apple Health or Google Fit, your height, weight, age, and sex will be imported from those apps into Oura, and you will not be able to edit them unless you unlink the apps.

The Oura App might not import data from integrations if both apps were not opened before midnight, if "Background App Refresh" is disabled, or if "Lower Power Mode" is enabled. Open both Oura and the integrated app at least once a day to prevent this.

The Oura App will only sync workouts for the current day. If you are having trouble syncing your workout, verify that "Date Added" 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. Edit the calorie info through the app used to track your workout.

When tracking activity, Oura only records your active calories. These calories include the calories you burn during exercise and not your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR, the number of calories required to keep your body functioning while at rest). Other fitness trackers and health apps will combine active calories and BMR. As a result, their calorie burn estimations may differ slightly from Oura's.
