Can You Export Oura Data?

Yes, you can do this easily. You can download some or all of your Oura data for a period of time. For example, you could export the total sleep time and deep sleep time for each night over the last 60 days. 

I like to analyze my sleep and activity data in detail to find ways to improve my health. For this reason, I export my Oura Ring data as spreadsheets with all the information I want. 

Can I Export My Oura Ring Data?

Yes, you can save and export the data that your Oura Ring records. You can find the files online, download them, and send them to any other device you want. You can export a spreadsheet that includes whatever data you want. 

You can improve your health if you get an Oura Ring and do as much as possible with the information. You can use an Oura Ring to find out how much physical activity you can handle before you need to prioritize sleep

How Do You Download Your Oura Ring Data?

First, visit and log in to your account. Then, download the information as a CSV file. 

Go to the menu on the left side of the page and click trends. Then, click on the down arrow to open a new menu. Choose the date range by clicking and dragging on the graph at the top of the screen.

Then, decide what information you want to export. You won’t usually be interested in all of the information. You can use the down arrow menus (one on the left and one on the right) to decide what information to download. 

Downloading All Your Data

You might download all data about your sleep, activity, and readiness instead of only certain metrics. To download everything, click on download data at the top right and click select all. Then, click the download button with the check mark beside it to download your data. 

You can also use the download data panel to download some but not all of the data you want. For example, the download data panel will let you pick these four metrics but not any others:

  • Sleep Score
  • Sleep Score: Total
  • Sleep Score: REM
  • Sleep Score: Deep

Downloading Several Metrics

There are many other metrics you can choose, both for sleep and for other things. For example, you might use the download data panel to download all of the following information:

You can download ten or more metrics, or only two or four of them, depending on what information you care about. You probably won’t want to download everything, but you can easily do that if you pick select all. 

Should You Download Your Data as a CSV File?

Yes, depending on what you want to know, you might download your data in spreadsheet form. You might want to see if one thing affects another. 

For example, you could look at your overall sleep quality and your activity scores. You might try to see if being more active leads to you sleeping better. 

Someone might compare their respiratory rate to their sleep latency. They might find that breathing quickly makes them nervous and makes it take a long time to fall asleep, and that breathing slowly calms them down and gets them to sleep faster. 

Since getting in shape can give you a slower resting heart rate, you could compare activity scores to your average resting HR. 

How Do I Backup My Oura Ring Data?

To back up your Oura Ring data into the cloud, click on the three lines in the home tab. This will open a menu. Click on settings and then select back up all data. 

How Do I Transfer My Oura Ring to Someone Else?

Someone who has recently upgraded to an Oura Ring 3 might want to give their old Oura Ring 2 to someone else. Is this easy to do? What is necessary?

First, you should completely reset your Oura Ring. After resetting it completely, the new owner can pair it to a new phone and create a new account. Since Oura Rings require monthly fees, the company has no reason to discourage this. 

How to Reset an Oura Ring

First, tap the ring icon in the top right of the home tap. Then, swipe left, go to tools, and select factory reset. This will completely wipe your Oura Ring and get it ready for a new user.

You should also remove the Oura Ring from the list of devices your phone connects to. On your phone, go into Bluetooth settings. The Oura Ring will be named “Oura_” followed by a string of letters and numbers.

Setting the Oura Ring Up for a New User

First, make sure the internet is stable and won’t disconnect halfway through. Before you do anything else, back up your data and then do a factory reset. Close the Oura App and remove the Oura Ring from the phone’s list of connected devices. 

At this point, the Oura Ring doesn’t have an owner. Put it on the charger and install the app on the new owner’s phone. 

After installing the app, follow the instructions that the app gives you. This should let you connect the new owner’s email address and phone to the Oura Ring. Finally, you should delete the app from the original owner’s phone as they no longer need it. 

How to Fix Problems

If you have any trouble transferring the Oura Ring to a new user, you could uninstall or reinstall the app, turn the device on and off again, or do another factory reset. These simple fixes don’t always work but try them before calling customer support. 

Does Oura Have An API?

Yes, Oura has an API that makes it easier for third-party programs to access the sleep data. The API is not for everyone. It is for programmers that want to integrate the Oura Ring data into another program, not for anyone that wants to look at their sleep data.

APIs are what allow two different pieces of software to communicate with each other. Someone trying to build their own sleep-tracking app that works with the Oura Ring will use the Oura API.
