Congratulations on your new Oura Ring! Having fun? No! Is it because you still don’t know how to set it up? Don’t worry; follow my lead as I provide clear and crisp instructions on How to Turn on your Oura Ring.

I remember how I faced the same issue when I bought my Oura Ring. I had no idea how to set it up, how to sync it with the Oura App, and most importantly, how to turn On the Ring. There were no lights and definitely no buttons, but somehow, I figured out the way. 

But guess what? After the initial sync, things got even worse. Every time I wore it, I was confused.

Is it turned on? Is it currently tracking my vitals? But don’t worry- you won’t have to go through the same maze- I will tell you exactly if you can manually turn on the Oura ring and check whether the ring is working or not.  

How To Check If Your Oura Ring Is Turned On? 

Oura Ring, known for its sleek titanium body, provides a minimalist, evergreen, classic design that can blend into everyday life. That’s why there is no physical button or touch display to start your Oura Ring. 

When you wear it, it automatically turns on, and the sensor lights start blinking. This means your Oura Ring is turned On and is ready to transmit stats and information to its connected device. 

Further, to confirm if Oura Ring is turned on or not, open the Oura app and check:

  • Change in Oura Ring battery level
  • Change in heart rate

You can check the Oura Ring battery level and other tracked vitals, especially the heart rate, to confirm whether your Oura Ring is working properly or not.

But if you have somehow taken a break from wearing your Oura Ring and have enabled power-saving mode, your Ring won’t turn on automatically. 

In such a case, you can start using it again by simply placing the Oura Ring on its charger and following the in-app instructions to reconnect it with the Oura App.

However, this is only possible if you have set up and paired your Ring earlier. If you want to start or turn ON your newly bought Oura Ring for the first time, you have to install the Oura Ring app on your phone and place the ring on the charger for the initial Oura Ring setup. Seems difficult? Don’t worry; join me as I tell you How I set up my Oura Ring in detail steps.

How To Set Up Your Oura Ring  

Once you have purchased an Oura Ring, you must set up the official Oura app and pair the Ring with your primary device. As soon as your Oura Ring syncs with the app, it will transfer the stats and metrics to the connected digital device.
