Strava and Oura have announced an expansion of their integration, which will offer richer data sharing between the two services.

While Oura and Strata have been able to share workout data since 2022, you can now share even more between the two platforms.

Oura will enable you to tag specific elements of your Oura data within workouts in Strava.

That means specific media, such as your top Readiness score or immense sleep duration can be added to your Strava workouts – if you’re so inclined. It means you might get some kudos for a great night’s kip, as well as smashing your Sunday morning long run.

But there are practical examples too.

It should mean an end to duplicate workout uploads, where a Strava workout is tracked via Oura’s automatic workout detection and another Strava-linked device.

“Replace screenshots and multiple activity uploads with a streamlined experience,” is the promise from Oura – and that’s something we can get behind.

To connect Oura and Strava:

1. Head to the Oura app
2. Go to Settings
3. Choose Other apps
4. Sign in to Strava

“Chasing your personal best means nurturing your entire well-being,” said Zipporah Allen, Chief Business Officer, Strava. “That's why we're dedicated to integrating trusted partners into Strava, ensuring our athletes have the tools they need to optimize every aspect of their active lives.”

Strava is our go-to workout platform, and it’s a superbly agonistic way of storing workout data from a range of wearables. 

While Oura is not a top workout tracker, its data does form a big part of a holistic look at readiness and recovery. So we’re looking forward to seeing how this works in practice – even if it’s just a way to bag a bit more kudos.
