There’s no doubt about it that the Oculus Quest 2 is currently one of the best VR headsets on the market when it comes purely to physical activity. While we’ve been singing the praises of the Quest 2 for a few weeks at this point, the headset has today gotten even better thanks to a recent development.
YUR, the fitness application that can track a ton of different statistics associated with your physical health, has now rolled out on the Oculus Quest 2. If you’re unfamiliar with YUR, it features a variety of tools that can help you better keep track of your exercise routines while playing various games.
Some of the features that YUR boasts include an estimated calorie burn total, a squat counter, and a predictive heart rate monitor. YUR also features a number of different levels that you can continue to grow over time the more you use it. Best of all, the app is also compatible across any single game in the Quest 2’s library.
You can get a look at YUR in the trailer right here:
If you’re someone who has been in the VR fitness scene for a long time, you’re likely already aware of how important tools like YUR are. Assuming that you’re serious about cutting weight or staying in shape, you likely are looking to follow your calories and exercise routines very closely. YUR allows you to do exactly that without missing a beat and is vital if you’re looking to get deeper feedback on the routines that you might frequent while in the world of virtual reality.
As for how you have to download YUR, well, it is a bit different than normal. The application is only available on the Oculus Quest 2 via side loading and isn’t natively present on the Oculus storefront. Still, the process is fairly simple and should only take a few moments to download. If you are familiar with Side Quest VR, you should be able to find YUR listed under the TV section of the site.
And if you are looking for more information on YUR and the many features that it boasts, you can read up on it right here. And if you’d like to get it added onto your own Quest 2 right now, you can find a simple step-by-step installation guide by visiting this page. For those of you with the original Oculus Quest, YUR is available on that platform as well.
