This month, Fitbit has released a Blood Oxygen level feature for Versa, Versa 2, Versa Lite, Ionic & Charge 3 wearables. The function was in waiting mode for an extended period. At the start of last year, the CEO of the company announced to release this feature till the end of 2019. Why is it useful? Well, it can measure the oxygen level in your body and tell how your organs are working. Well, as he promised, Fitbit users can now monitor blood oxygen level or SpO2 using their Fitbit smartwatches or trackers. Fitbit is now rolling out this function for all the users and in the next few weeks, all users will receive it.
Apple Watch also has this function since the beginning when the company said to introduce it in 2015. The irony is Apple still doesn’t have any official date to release the service. Fitbit users are now lucky to use it. If you have updated your Fitbit app then you will see the new portion of data in the app. If you do not see blood oxygen saturation, then wait for a while until the company releases on your wearable.
