Getting Pulse Oximeter Readings

You can manually begin a pulse oximeter reading on your device at any time. The accuracy of these readings can vary based on your blood flow, the device placement on your wrist, and your stillness (Tips for Erratic Pulse Oximeter Data).

  1. Wear the device above your wrist bone.

    The device should be snug but comfortable.

  2. Swipe to view the pulse oximeter widget.
  3. Hold the arm wearing the device at heart level while the device reads your blood oxygen saturation.
  4. Keep still.

The device displays your oxygen saturation as a percentage.

NOTE: You can turn on and view pulse oximeter sleep data in your Garmin Connect™ account (Turning On Pulse Oximeter Sleep Tracking).
