Is Oura waterproof?

The Oura Ring is a sleek and modern fitness tracker that is much lightweight and smaller than other wearable brands and is designed to withstand water up to a certain limit which is 330 feet or 100 meters that makes it water-resistant not completely waterproof. This means you can wear the Ring in Saunas or keep it submerged in water while diving, swimming, or taking a shower.

Keep the ring away from soap and shampoo as these chemicals can find their way inside the Ring to break the water-resistance seal damaging internal components like the battery which is the most important part of the Ring.If you are concerned that Ring may slide into water then you must know that the sensors on the Ring are advanced enough to keep it fit snugly so it won’t slide off your finger.

Similarly, exposure to water for more than 12 hours or doing scuba diving to go deeper than 330 feet will put more pressure on the ring causing internal damage. The important part of the Ring is the battery and if it’s damaged you will see that Oura Ring won’t charge and you may have to get a replacement which is only possible if you have a warranty period left.

Is Oura Ring heat resistance?

Oura Ring is designed to withstand 125F or 52C temperature but that’s the baseline it can easily withstand higher and hotter temperatures, thanks to the nonallergenic and nonmetallic materials and seamless inner molding that keeps heating away from internal parts like batteries and sensors. But continuous exposure to heat like putting the Ring under direct sunlight is going to damage it. So make sure to use it in such temperatures with caution so you end up with the trackings and not damaging the Ring. The exterior of the Ring is coated with titanium so at a certain temperature it is going to compromise.

Wearing Oura Ring in the steam room

Oura Ring is also comfortable to wear in a steam room as it is water-resistant enough to handle a 100% humid environment but steam rooms are comparatively cooler than traditional and Infrared Saunas so Humidity only won’t cause harm to Oura ring. Surprisingly, the Ring will track how a steam room affects your body and notice your heart rate and skin temperatures to give you details insight into how your body reacted to a steam room.
