Top 5 Smartwatches & Fitness Bands Available In India That Can Help In Tracking Oxygen Levels



India’s COVID-19 situation is dire at the moment and in order to keep tracking your health, having a pulse oximeter at home is essential. Not only does it measure the oxygen saturation in blood, but it also helps in monitoring the health of coronavirus patients. However, with pulse oximeters getting scarce in the country, you can also invest in smartwatches and fitness bands that support SpO2 level monitoring. These smartwatches cannot replace a traditional pulse oximeter, it’s still a great gadget to have on you at all times so that it can alert users with symptoms or help in tracking mild cases:

1. Apple Watch Series 6

If you are an iPhone user, you really can’t get a smartwatch better than the Apple Watch Series 6. The watch tracks your SpO2 levels in the background and notifies the user if it drops from the recommended level. With the Apple Watch, you can also store all of your data on the Health app which can be shared with your doctor as a PDF file. The Apple Watch Series 6 is by far the most accurate smartwatch you can get for SpO2 readings as we’ve tested results and compared it with a traditional pulse oximeter. Results are usually off by 1% which is quite impressive considering the smartwatch is not considered as traditional medical equipment.

If you’re looking for a cheaper offering, the newly launched OnePlus Watch is also capable of SpO2 tracking. The smartwatch works with OnePlus and other Android devices and stores all the data on the OnePlus health app. While the SpO2 tracking isn’t as accurate as the Apple Watch, it’s still a great tool to have if you are looking to invest in a smartwatch that works with Android devices.

3. Amazfit Bip U
