Honor has announced that they are adding Pulse Oxygen Saturation monitoring (SpO2) to their Honor Band 5 with a software update.
The SpO2 tracking is being added to the device on the 30th of September with an over the air software update.
Blood oxygen saturation measurement is a key indicator of the oxygen supply to cells and tissues. Good blood oxygenation is necessary to supply energy to your muscles in order to function well. Blood oxygen levels between 90% and 100% are normal, while a SpO2 value below 89% could be a signal to stop exercising or seek medical attention.
SpO2 tracking will be added to all HONOR Band 5’s via an over the air software update on 30 September. Once the Band 5 and Huawei Health apps have received their free update, users can choose the ‘blood oxygen monitoring’ section on their Band 5 and click to start measuring, then see the results in their Huawei Health app. This data is for reference only and Band 5 is not intended to be used as a medical device.
