Another newly added feature is the Pulse Ox (SpO2)2, a technology which measures blood oxygen saturation – a useful health indicator to monitor during this time of pandemic as the Covid-19 virus can lead to pneumonia infection in which the lung’s air sacs are filled with fluid, leading to a drop in blood oxygen level. A sudden drop in SpO2 levels may indicate an early onset of symptoms.
