Measure Blood Oxygen Level or SpO2 on Honor Band 6
1. First, wear Honor Band 5, 5i, or Band 6 tightly
It is the essential step in the method. When you download the Huawei Health app, pair it with your new smart band.
2. Now, light up the main screen
It is not necessary to open the Health app. Directly, open the main screen of Honor Band 5 or Band 6.
3. After that, slide the main band screen
Honor Bands have plenty of functions. Those all functions are available on the fitness tracker present in the menu.
4. Here you will see Blood Oxygen Detection or SpO2
It is the third option in the menu when you slide the main screen from down to up. If you have rearranged all menus from Settings, then just find the SpO2 function.
5. On the main screen, tap & hold for the Home key
To open the SpO2 feature, tap on it. The main screen will give you advice about how to use blood oxygen saturation.
6. Hold for one minute, which is the minimum requirement
It is important in all the steps. Most of the customers complain that they are unable to get the Spo2 result. You have to wear it tightly on your wrist. Wear it one finger away from the wrist. It requires 30 seconds or one minute to show the results, though it doesn’t take that much time.
7. Finally, after 1 minute you will see the results
When you stand still or don’t move your hand, then within a minute it, will show you the final result. The normal SpO2 or the blood oxygen in our body should be more than 90%. When you see it below 90%, then refer the doctors, but don’t get any medicine based on this result.
If you wear a fitness band incorrectly, then it will not measure the blood and remind you to wear it correctly. Blood oxygen value checks every 3 seconds. At the same time, every second, it measures heart rate, so don’t remove band until one minute. Now, you know how to measure blood oxygen saturation by Honor Band 5, Band 5i & Band 6 trackers.
