The following are steps to take when you realize your Oura Ring is lost:

Retrace your steps to see if you can remember where you last had the ring. Retracing your steps helps you narrow down your search area for the missing ring.
Use an App
You can use the Find My Ring or Find My Lost Bluetooth Device apps to find your lost Oura Ring. The apps are built to detect nearby Bluetooth devices.

If you are using the ‘Find My Ring’ app, move around slowly. When the Oura Ring is in range, a signal indicator will appear. Move towards the direction of the strength of the signal. You should be close to your Oura Ring when all or most of the bars have lit up.
