The Apple Watch launched last Friday and we got to see what was inside Apple’s new smartwatch after the guys from iFixit took it apart.
When the Apple Watch was taken apart by the guys from iFixit, they discovered a number of sensors inside the smartwatch.
One of the sensors is a new heart rate monitor and according to iFixit the hardware that Apple has used could be used to measure blood oxygen levels.
Apple’s heart rate monitor is actually a plethysmograph—it looks and acts like a pulse oximeter, but Apple isn’t claiming it can measure your blood oxygen level.
Whilst the sensor is capable of measuring blood oxygen levels, this is not something that Apple has implemented on the App Watch and this could be because they would need FDA approval for this sensor.
