Oculus Move helps you keep track of the calories you burn and how long you’ve been physically active across any game or app in VR. You can set goals for yourself and track your progress over time.
Please note that Oculus move is available for Quest and Quest 2.
Providing personal information when you use Oculus Move is optional. According to standard measurements in the health/fitness industry, age, weight, height and sex are variables that impact the rate at which you burn calories, so if you provide this information, your calorie estimate will be better. If you are uncomfortable with sharing any of this information, or do not identify with a sex, you can choose to skip providing any of these variables, and in that case, an average will be used instead. Certain information you provide in Oculus Move, such as height, weight, and sex, is stored on your device and will only be used to predict calories burned.
Calories burned are estimated through an algorithm that considers your basal metabolic rate (BMR) and your headset and controller movements. BMR depends on your age, weight, height and sex. You can choose to provide your age, weight, height and sex or rely on averages instead. We use the birth date from your Facebook profile to calculate your age, unless you choose to skip using your age as part of the Oculus Move calorie estimate. Please note that the calorie counts provided in Oculus Move are estimates only. Calorie counts in Oculus Move should be used for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon for medical or other purposes.
Any weight, height or sex information that you provide will be stored locally on your headset and not shared with Facebook. This means that if you clear your Oculus Move data in your Oculus Move settings or factory reset your headset, then this information will be deleted permanently. If you wish to use Oculus Move again after doing so, then you will have to provide these BMR inputs again.
Your Oculus Move stats, including your total calories burned over time, are stored locally on your headset and are not shared with Facebook. If you clear your Oculus Move stats or factory reset your headset, this information will be deleted permanently. If you resume using Oculus Move after doing so, you will no longer have access to your previous Oculus Move stats.
If you set and meet any Oculus Move goals, Oculus collects and aggregates this information to improve Oculus Move and measure whether it’s helping people achieve their fitness goals. For example: If you set a calories target of “moderate” and achieve it, Oculus would collect and aggregate that a user achieved a calorie target of “moderate.”
You can find Oculus Move in the apps panel of your Quest or Quest 2 headset. You can access your apps by selecting from your menu bar.
Keep in mind, you may not see Oculus Move show up in your apps panel right away. We’re rolling this feature out gradually so we can gather feedback from our community and continue to improve it. Oculus Move will be available to everyone in the coming months.
