Fitbit has launched recently a new Fitbit smartwatch, Versa 3, Sense, and Inspire 2. But in Versa 3 and Sense, in this, both only the Sp02 monitor comes. The users who have Versa 3 and Sense can now easily track their blood oxygen levels. The users will now no longer have to get inside the watch to track your Sp02. It will track the user’s blood oxygen only when they are wearing the watch.
The company also clarified that the Sp02 levels shown by the watch can not be used for the purpose of medical. The company also said, “The data provided by Fitbit Sp02 is intended to be a close estimation of your blood oxygen saturation levels, but may not be precisely accurate.”
How does Sp02 measure in the Fitbit smartwatch?
The company explained that the process is similar to how the heart rate monitor works and said, “Deoxyhenated blood, which returns to lungs through your veins, is a slightly darker in red color than the fully oxygenated blood in your arteries and arterioles (small blood vessels that bring oxygenated blood to your tissues). By using Fitbit smartwatch sensors to measure the relative reflection of red and infrared light from your blood through your wrist, and observing how they differ as per your heartbeats, we can estimate your Sp02 value.”
As of now, the company launches its most advanced smartwatch, the Fitbit Sense. The watch comes with an electrodermal activity (EDA) to measure stress levels along with the heart rate tracker, ECG, and skin temperature.
The new Fitbit Sense measures electrodermal activity reaction. Using the EDA Scan application, the user needs to place their plan over the face of the vice to determine small electrical changes in the level of the sweat of skin. By measuring your EDA responses can help you understand your body’s response to help to manage your stress. By tapping on the clock cycles between displaying SpO2 levels, Active Zone Minutes, Heart Rate, current daily step count, and current daily floor count will be shown.
With the SpO2 for watch face installed from the Fitbit Gallery, the smartwatch will track average blood oxygen saturation levels when you are sleeping and will start displaying them in an hour from the time you wake up in the morning. The members of Fitbit Premium, they will get to track their trends in the upcoming Health Metrics dashboard.
New watch faces will be available soon on the Fitbit Ionic, Versa, and Sense devices. Fitbit also said that selected markets won’t get it right now. Some of the people are successfully downloading the new face by VPNing to the Fitbit Gallery from the UK. The company also says that more watch faces option will be available with SpO2 tracking this year.
