I remember the days when smartphones were the new IT thing. Now, there is a tablet in one pocket, a mobile in the other, a smartwatch on one wrist, a fitness tracker on the other, with smart rings on the fingers and smart glasses on the face. 

Well, the count goes on! And because of this- the dilemma I faced when I bought my Oura Ring was if I could sync my Oura Ring with my multiple devices at the same time. If you are someone with the same question, then I have some sad news for you. 

Well you cannot connect a single Oura ring with multiple devices at the same time. However I tried connecting it and faced some login errors. So let’s find out the reason why Oura doesn’t allow their ring to connect to more than one device. And if you stay till the end-, there’s a hack hidden for you!

Can you Connect Oura Ring With Multiple Devices?

The smart Ring Oura collects data with its advanced sensors and syncs it to the Oura App downloaded on its primary connected device. However, you cannot sync Oura Ring with multiple devices simultaneously. 

Oura follows a strict ‘One Ring, One Account, One Device’ policy. According to this, you can only use one Oura Account with One Oura Ring on One active device. However, you can connect or login the same account on multiple devices. But Oura Ring will sync the information and metrics only with the currently active device and render all the login devices inactive. 

Once you log in on another device, the earlier logged-in account will go into a restricted mode and stop syncing data. To retrieve it, you need to factory reset and download the backup.

After reading Oura’s guidelines, I wasn’t sure about what devices were included in this limitation. So, I tested and tried syncing Oura with multiple devices, like-

  • Using the Oura App On My Phone and Tablet simultaneously
  • Using the Oura App On My Phone and Smart Watch simultaneously
  • Using the Oura App On My Tablet and Smart Watch simultaneously

However, in each case, I was not able to connect my Oura Ring to 2 devices at the same time. Oura’s One Ring, One Device policy restricted me from syncing my smart ring with various iOS and Android devices or fitness gadgets. Even when I successfully paired my Oura Ring to multiple devices, I observed it could actively be connected with only one primary device.

Once logged in on a new device, the earlier logged-in account automatically went into restricted mode. The account then needed to be factory reset and logged in again. After that, only the backed-up data (Auto Backup or Manual Backup) was recovered.

PS- If your old device is somehow inoperable or lost, and someone else attempts to pair your Oura Ring (currently paired) with a new or alternate device, your ring’s data and account will go into Restricted Mode. In this case, the Oura App will prompt you to factory reset the ring and its associated account to turn off Restricted Mode. Data saved on the ring since your last sync will be erased, but any historical data saved before sync will still be available.

Well, I didn’t stop there; I tried using different hacks with multiple accounts and multiple Rings to see if I could somehow sync Oura data metrics in different devices. If you are also thinking of such workarounds, let me solve your doubts

Can you Connect Oura Ring to Multiple Accounts?

Only one Account can be associated with one Oura Ring. You cannot change or connect multiple accounts to one Oura Ring. When I tried pairing my Oura Ring with a new iOS device and an Android mobile, I was asked to log in with the same registered account credentials. Though I could change my associated Email or password, the account remained the same.

Can you Connect Multiple Oura Rings to the Same Account?

One Oura Account only supports one Oura Ring. You cannot sync two or more Oura Rings to one Oura account. When I tried connecting my new Oura Ring with the same account, I was unable to set up the ring. To prevent the exchange of data for a different Ring, irrespective of the model, the user needs to create a separate account.

Disappointed! Well, don’t be because after trying so many alternatives, I finally found a small loophole. Want to know what? Let’s see how I accessed my Oura Ring on 2 different devices.

How To Sync Oura Ring With Multiple Devices: Using Oura on the Web

Oura Ring’s intended use and setup currently give access to only one device for syncing its health metrics, score, and analysis reports.

However, in addition to the Oura App on your primary connected device, you can view, access, and compare your data through the Oura on the Web. It also offers multiple options for viewing, exporting, and sharing your data. On the web dashboard, you can view-
