According to Appleinsider, citing the Washington post, Apple previously released the Apple Watch Series 6, which added blood oxygen monitoring function. But a Washington Post reporter called the Apple Watch Series 6 oximeter “not working.”
According to Geoffrey Fowler, a technology columnist for the Washington post, he decided not to wear the Apple Watch Series 6 to test his oximeter. Fowler reports that wearables get conflicting readings when using blood-oxygen measurement applications. Fowler said the Apple Watch Series 6 has “little use” in blood oxygen monitoring.
“Sometimes, the new Apple Watch Series 6 reports that my lungs and heart are healthy and my blood oxygen levels are normal. Sometimes it would report that my blood oxygen was very low and That I might have emphysema. I’m not. “< / p >
he also mentioned that some of the problems might be related to a Solo loop&party; Watch strap. The IT House learned that the Solo Loop is available in a variety of sizes, and reducing the size eliminates some of the possibility of a deviation in the measurement, which would leave a trace on the user’s arm.
it’s worth noting that Apple has made it clear that the oximeter in the Apple Watch Series 6 should not be used for health assessments.

the good news is that source Komiya said in his tweet that Apple will continue to improve blood oxygen monitoring through software updates.
