Your OxyWatch will send beams of light through the blood in your finger, measuring the amount of Oxygen. It also measures your heart-rate at the same time.
Doctors use oximeters to monitor ongoing health concerns like asthma, pneumonia, lung and heart conditions. It’s also a useful tool in the fight against Covid-19. The blood oxygen level is an indicator of how well a patient’s lungs are performing.
Your HoMedics OxyWatch can also be used during physical training, as your body typically adapts to different levels of oxygenation during physical activity by increasing your breathing rate.
