Oura measures your temperature every minute you wear it, directly from the underside of your finger, and is part of a growing scientific movement that is making major updates to how we interpret body temperature. Just like your heart rate, your temperature is constantly changing as your body adapts to internal and environmental changes. Measuring temperature (even multiple times a day) with an oral thermometer only measures a limited snapshot of your temperature while measuring continuously captures the full picture of changes in your body.
Keep in mind that the Oura App takes insights from your average nighttime temperature, so make sure you wear your ring at night. Learn more about the accuracy of Oura’s temperature data here.
