Getting Pulse Oximeter Readings

You can manually begin a pulse oximeter reading by viewing the pulse oximeter widget. The widget displays your most recent blood oxygen saturation percentage, a graph of your hourly average readings for the last 24 hours, and a graph of your elevation for the last 24 hours.

NOTE: The first time you view the pulse oximeter widget, the device must acquire satellite signals to determine your elevation. You should go outside, and wait while the device locates satellites.
  1. While you are sitting or inactive, press UP or DOWN to view the pulse oximeter widget.
  2. Press START to view widget details and begin a pulse oximeter reading.
  3. Remain motionless for up to 30 seconds.
    NOTE: If you are too active for the watch to get a pulse oximeter reading, a message appears instead of a percentage. You can check again after several minutes of inactivity. For best results, hold the arm wearing the device at heart level while the device reads your blood oxygen saturation.
  4. Press DOWN to view a graph of your pulse oximeter readings for the last seven days.
