Strava gets Oura Stickers

Oura and Strava

Oura and Strava already have integrations between the platforms. Today the integrations have been expanded so that you can create a sticker in Oura and send it to a completed Strava activity.

You might want to share your 100% Oura Readiness Score to a Strava Workout as proof that readiness was the key to your KOM.

How it works – Overview

First, you complete an activity in Strava in your normal way. If you’ve already set up the sync between the two apps then that workout will also find its way to the Oura app. If not see the instructions below on how to get them linked up.

Next, go into the Oura app and choose a background image or take a picture. You can then add several bits of your wellness data to that picture to create a collage.

Once you are happy with the picture and the data shown on it you can send the picture (aka sticker) back to any completed Strava workout.

The sticker then appears in Strava for you or your followers to admire.



Take Out

Platform A links to Platform B isn’t a story any more and I don’t even have the justification of it being a quiet news day.

Will anyone use these features?

I mean, if HRV-Readiness from Oura was modelled alongside your TSB-readiness in Strava then maybe yet another made-up composite score might mean something. But this new aspect of the integration takes a minute or so to produce and I’m just not sure that anyone will be bothered to do it. that said, I spent a minute or so doing it to produce the images above.

  1. On my app it seems that i can only attach to activities that are like 6 days earlier which don’t make sense, not sure if this is a bug only for me, for example today is 12th and if i try to post it only can post an activity of 7th March even in Strava there’s activities in all the other days, and tomorrow it will appear the ones from 8th March

    Can someone confirm if it happens to you as well?
