    They have an API and I wrote a NPM package for it: https://www.npmjs.com/package/oura

    This is the very best sleep tracker available so exist should really consider making syncing data possible. Maybe you could integrate with their exist like platform instead of directly with OURA if that is simpler https://www.precise.ly/home/login

    We’re happy to integrate it when it becomes a lot more popular.

    Oura is the wearable I recommend most, and I try a lot of them. Great 24/7 comfort, best of breed app, fantastic sleep insights, and next gen hardware on the horizon.

    Is there any way we can sync the data via exist’s API?

    06 December 2017

    You could certainly write your own integration to use this with our API if you so desired.

    I might take a stab at this when my new OURA arrives. No promises, though.

    If someone else starts to build an integration, keep me posted!

    its seems indeed like a nice wearable. we’ll see when the new version comes.

    Oura great device for geting data for sleep. Oura has best on market sleep data.

    Saw that you also can track Heart Rate Variability - HRV (rMSSD) https://blog.ouraring.com/blog/heart-rate-variability-basics/

    Awesome experiance so far with Oura, replaced my fitbit charge 2, longer battery life, same or more tracked data types and like Exist, provides valuable recommendations. Whilst Oura deals with the body/mind - Exist could link it to the world.

    Is there any way to sync Oura with Exist? Oura has open API - https://cloud.ouraring.com/docs/ . Several services like http://headsuphealth.com uses Oura’s API.

    Yes, this is possible, this is why it’s in “Suggestions” rather than “Not possible”.

    You could certainly write your own integration to use this with our API if you so desired.

    We have limited time for more activity integrations, so until this becomes a priority, you could write your own integration.

    Just see Gyroscope got that integrated. It seems Oura having a more frequently HRV over night which is good to analyze sleep

    I know there are limited resources but for me the utility for Exist is based on compatibility with my fitness tracker.

    If you’re on iOS, you can connect Oura to Apple Health, then there’s no need to wait for a specific integration as we support Apple Health. I’m unsure whether it also connects to Google Fit.

    08 December 2018

    Oura does not connect to Google Fit right now.

    09 December 2018
  • avatar

    Thanks for that. Folks, you might also want to contact Oura and ask them to support syncing to to Google Fit. That’d mean you don’t need to wait for us to integrate it, and that Oura would be providing the same level of support and effort for Android as it does on iOS. techsupport@ouraring.com

    Paulo, the difficulty of integrating Oura is not an issue, and I’m not sure we’ve ever said it was. Josh even mentioned in an earlier comment right here that we’re happy to add this integration if it becomes more popular.

    If you take a look at the list of suggestions on our roadmap, you’ll see Oura is quite far down the list. There are many integrations that are more popular among our users than Oura at this stage. Popularity isn’t the only thing we take into account when deciding where to spend our time, but it is a factor that helps us decide, as limited resources mean we want to work on new integrations or features that will help a large number of our users.

    Another factor that helps us plan what to work on is our annual survey, where we’re able to collate the opinions of lots of our users at once, rather than being overwhelmed by the vocal minority. In our latest annual survey, productivity integrations and more data from existing integrations were the most popular requests in terms of integration types, and improving correlations was the most popular request in terms of which area of Exist we should focus on.

    All of this information helps us decide what to work on, as well as information we have internally, such as how people use Exist, and what our long-term plans are. So difficulty is not the issue here. Hope that makes sense!

    +1 for Oura integration. Oura gives ability to track stress response for phisical or mental activity via HRV (RMSSD) and average heart . Current integrations for steps or activities are useles without geting data how this activities affect to recovery.

    Comments not adding to the discussion, like “+1”, will be deleted.

    I understand this is not at the top of the list right now, but I wanted to offer a couple of thoughts:

    • People who gravitate to Exist are likely to gravitate to Oura. I imagine a poll would show a lot of early adopters among both groups right now.

    • “You can write your own API” as an answer bifurcates your user group between those who can write their own APIs and those of us who cannot. When weighing popularity, please take into account the people still asking cannot solve this problem on their own. The people who can write an API may stop asking. You’d need to combine both groups to understand the universal desire for a feature.

    • If “write your own API” is the answer – please provide instructions for those of us who are not coders to take advantage of these tools.

    I’m imagining that anyone who write their own integration makes it open for others to use. We already have several community integrations that work like this.

    I consider the votes received to be like taking a poll, and while it’s not bottom of the list now, it is not one of the most popular suggestions.

    Also as an update, as the Oura Android app supports Google Fit syncing now, basic Oura data is possible whether using Android (use Google Fit) or iOS (use Apple Health) with Exist.

    Another Oura user here. While it’s basic sleep tracking info syncs to Health Kit, and is available to Exist, I’d really like to get access to other data it collects like resting heart rate, step count, HRV, and body temperature within Exist.

    During testing I’ve noticed a lot of issues with Oura on Android failing to sync reliably to Oura Cloud. My data is usually out of date and I have past days that are missing data, with no way to update it. All of these issues make me hesitant to add official support. Syncing issues mean a bad experience for our users, a lot of extra support for us, and people who mistakenly think the issue is on our end.

    For people who are using Oura currently, I’d like to take an informal poll of your syncing experience. I’d like you to check your Oura Cloud dashboard regularly for a few days and see if your steps and sleep sync reliably, or whether they are a day behind. When you’ve tracked this for at least 5 days, can you email us with your results, and whether you’re using Android or iOS? Having more data will help me diagnose how widespread the issue is, and whether it’s only the Android app that has serious flaws.

    Here for iOS is syncing mostly good!

    Still looking to hear from folks, especially on Android, about how reliable their Oura Cloud syncing experience is. Please email us or join in on the forum thread.

    It seems to work fine through Google Fit. The only issue is that Oura tracks sleep from “going to bed” to “leaving bed” when it reports it to Google Fit.

    This is an issue as actual sleep is often much less.

    26 January

    I have checked for 5 days now and it seems to sync reliably within 5 min. I am using the android app.

    03 April
  • avatar

    Yes, the last update for the Android app seems to have finally fixed it.

    Because Oura has fixed their issues on Android, there’s finally no blocker to adding support for this, and it’ll come as part of the next round of updates.
