Apple adds blood oxygen sensors to Apple Watch Series 6

Apple has added to the health capabilities of its Watch models with a new feature that measures the user's blood oxygen saturation and is linked to its Health app to allow users to track trends over time.

While Apple says measurements taken with the Blood Oxygen app are not intended for medical use and are only designed for general fitness purposes, the company is working on three new research studies using the Watch to explore how blood oxygen levels can be used in future health applications.
