Pulse Oximeter

The fēnix® 5X Plus device has a wrist-based pulse oximeter to gauge the saturation of oxygen in your blood. Knowing your oxygen saturation can help you determine how your body is acclimating to high altitudes for alpine sport and expedition. When you view the pulse oximeter widget while you are not moving, your device analyzes your oxygen saturation and your elevation. The elevation profile helps indicate how your pulse oximeter readings are changing, relative to your to elevation.

On the device, your pulse oximeter reading appears as an oxygen saturation percentage and color on the graph. On your Garmin Connect™ account, you can view additional details about your pulse oximeter readings, including trends over multiple days.
