It’s been a while since I had my Oura Ring, and now it is part of my everyday accessory. But yesterday, when I returned from my sauna bath, I forgot where I had kept it. And yes, of course, I went into my panic mode.

Firstly, because I am obsessed with it duhh.. but most importantly I didn’t want to lose all of my data. I wished only if I had synced my Oura Ring with Cloud.

Scary! Right? Fortunately, I did find my ring, and guess what’s the first thing I did? I Synced my Oura Ring and its data with the Cloud account. From now on, I can easily access my Oura data and analysis through Oura on the web and sync its data without the fear of losing it. 

If you, too, want to add an extra layer of protection to your valuable Oura data, here’s how you can Sync your Oura Ring with the Cloud.

Does Oura Ring Sync Automatically With Cloud?

Yes, Oura Ring syncs automatically with the Cloud account. 

All the Oura data is connected to the user’s Oura account and periodically synced with Oura on the Web. The best thing about this is that it ensures the app data is preserved if the Oura Ring is lost or stolen. 

Also, this becomes an important factor when you have to transfer your new or replacement Oura Ring to a new device.

How To Sync Oura Ring With Cloud: On Android, iOS & PC

To sync the Oura Ring with my cloud account, I first had to back up and sync my Oura data to the latest and then cross-check the reflected changes in the Oura on the web. Here is how I accessed Oura on the web and synced my Oura Ring with Cloud on iOS and Android devices-

Note: Before syncing, I recommend you ensure that you have installed the Oura app and connected Oura Ring to your iPhone or Android device so that you can access Oura on the Web.

Steps to Sync Oura Ring With Oura on the Web

  1. Open the Oura mobile app> menu icon (top left corner)
  2. Choose the “Settings” option.
  3. Choose “Back up all data”.
  4. Wait for the sync to finish.
  5. Once complete, your data till now will be synced.
  6. Open the Oura Cloud Or Oura on the Web.
  7. Enter the Email address and Password registered with Oura Account
  8. Sign in and see the reflected data on the cloud account.
Oura Web

You will automatically be redirected to your Oura on the Web and have direct access to all your long-term Oura metrics. 

Why is My Oura Ring Not Syncing

I love Oura Ring, but sometimes, even you must have observed- the headache it gives when there is some problem in syncing. Well, these sync issues are outside my control but don’t worry; there are some steps that I usually take when my Oura ring is not syncing with the cloud.

If you too find yourself grunting and mumbling in frustration Why is my Oura Ring not Syncing? Here is what I think you can do.

  1. Try Manual Backup from the app.
  2. Try Oura Troubleshooting Fixes
  3. Chat With Oura’s Virtual Assistant- FINN for prompt assistance.
  4. Contact Oura’s Customer service
Oura Virtual Assitant

While I was searching for ways to force sync my Oura cloud account, I found that almost every Oura user is facing the same issues like-

  • Cloud Account information is not updated even after 48-50 hours.
  • Sleep data is not synced and updated in the Oura cloud.
  • HRV4TRAINING app’s data is not synced and reflected.
  • Cloud is not automatically syncing. Every time, manual backup is required.
  • App Integrations are not syncing smoothly.

When I tried contacting Oura help and asked about the automatic syncing, I got the following reply-

“Currently, it is required that a foreground sync occurs between the ring and mobile device in order for data to be pushed from ring to app to cloud. That said, there is a feature we released for a short period but is now back in production called Background Sleep Analysis. Once this feature relaunches, it will instantiate the sync when the ring detects signals indicative of you waking up each morning, which sounds like it is the solution you are looking for.

We currently do not have a release window for Background Sleep Analysis that we are able to share, but we should be announcing the relaunch of the feature to the community when it is ready.”

How and What Data is Synced in Oura Cloud Account: Oura on the Web

The most important and significant perk of using an Oura cloud account is that you can access the collected information without needing your ring physically. The app data is preserved even if the Oura Ring is lost, stolen, not accessible or if there is a case of a replacement ring.

Once I connected my Oura Ring with the cloud account, there were three key features and metrics I really benefited from-

1. Oura on the Web Dashboard

Once synced my cloud account with the ring, I could easily view, access, and compare my data through the Oura dashboard. On the web dashboard, I can view-

  • Readiness Score
  • Sleep Score
  • Activity Score
  • View Your HRV and RHR in HD
  • Put Your Data Under the Microscope
  • Tracking Your Long-Term Health Patterns

Even without a membership, I was still able to view my three daily scores within Oura on the Web Dashboard.

2. Trends

With Trends attribute, I could compare two of my unique Oura data points at once. I could analyze-

  • Sleep Pattern Trend
  • Recovery Pattern Trend
  • Activity Trend
  • Compare and Correlate Two Metrics (e.g., temperature deviation or sleep efficiency)
  • Run an experiment with a specific goal in mind.

With this, I could also download my Oura data in a CSV or JSON file or use the Share Report function to share my PDF summary with physicians, nutritionists, therapists, or trainers. On downloading, the totals are presented in seconds, not hours or minutes.

3. Guide

Oura on the Web also offers a Guide where I could get explanations of all Oura metrics available to be compared via Trends. 

This Guide is a useful resource in case you’d like to gain a better understanding of one of your Sleep, Readiness, or Activity data points, or need a quick refresh on how Oura defines specific metrics.

So, now you tell me. Isn’t it helpful to sync your Oura Ring with Cloud?
