Not a user myself. My wife loves her Oura ring. Super comfortable, with the caveat that it doesn't come in ring half-sizes. My college-age kid uses an older FitBit for sleep tracking and is happy with that.

I have no insight as to whether the Oura ring is going to give you restless-leg data directly or indirectly, but it is extremely reliable for recording other sleep disturbances in my wife's experience.






I feel like my Oura is pretty accurate. The fact it's a ring makes it very comfortable for sleeping, no issues at all.

FWIW, my sleep doctor says Oura rings are not accurate at all, but anecdotally I don't agree with him.

I do find the Oura is terrible at tracking activity like exercising, it's just wildly wrong. But for sleep it seems very accurate.


Trying to divine exercise from accelerometer data is hard. My kid's fitbit counted 2 hours of knitting as about 15 thousand steps.
