The ECG app and irregular rhythm notification feature help users identify signs of AFib, the most common form of irregular heart rhythm. When left untreated, AFib can lead to stroke, the second most common cause of death around the world. We’ve covered this in an earlier point, for its ability to detect irregular heart activity and send a notification.


The biggest new feature of the updated version is the introduction of blood oxygen saturation monitoring, which will allow users to keep better tabs on their overall fitness and wellness.

It uses both red and infrared lights and related sensors to measure the light reflected back from a user's blood, allowing the system to measure how much oxygen is in it. From there, the system uses custom algorithm in a new Blood Oxygen app to offer either on-demand measurements or periodic background monitoring — including during sleep.

Apple Watch can do what your other devices can’t because it’s on your wrist. When you wear it, you get a fitness partner that measures all the ways you move, meaningful health insights and a connection to the people and things you care about most.
And it’s always just a glance away.

  • Description

    "It’s the ultimate device for a healthy life."

    Blood oxygen detection, long available on competing fitness trackers, allows users to automatically monitor the saturation of oxygen in their blood. That's handy for monitoring a user's ability to breathe during vigorous exercise, or to detect conditions such as sleep apnea while in bed.  Blood oxygen levels are an important indicator of your overall wellness. 



    The Apple Watch Series 6 also features improved battery life and charging speeds. Apple says it'll complete a full charge in just an hour and a half.

    Apple also says that it's partnering with researchers at the University of California, Irvine, and Anthem to study how blood oxygen levels can be used in future health applications. Another study will research how the Apple Watch's health sensors could detect early signs of respiratory conditions such as flu or coronavirus.

    The new Sleep app doesn’t just track your sleep.
    It works with your iPhone to help you create a schedule and a bedtime routine so you can meet your sleep goals.

    It has your heart in mind.
    Unusually high or low heart rates could be signs of a serious condition. But many people don’t recognise the symptoms, so the underlying causes often go undiagnosed. Notifications in the Heart Rate app will alert you to these irregularities so you can take action and consult your doctor.

    Get help when you need it.
    Apple Watch can detect if you’ve taken a hard fall and connect you with emergency services if you’re immobile.3 You can also get immediate help in an emergency — even when you’re traveling internationally — by pressing and holding the side button.

    Wash up. Count down.
    Apple Watch automatically detects when you’re washing your hands and encourages you to go for a full 20 seconds. It can even remind you to wash them when you get home.

    Stay well versed in your wellness.
    Apple Watch has apps that help you focus on your overall health and wellness by letting you easily track your menstrual cycle, protect your hearing from loud sounds and practise mindfulness.

    Stay in touch with a tap.
    Text, make calls, and listen to music with ease. And with available cellular, you can do it all without your phone.6 It makes leaving your phone behind something you can do on purpose.

    Put your money where your wrist is.
    Use Apple Pay to buy almost anything quickly and securely with just a double-tap of the side button.

    Hey Siri. Do everything for me.
    Find directions, figure out what song is playing or even get a language translation just by raising your wrist and asking.

    Improve your sense of direction.
    With Maps, you can find driving, walking, or public transport directions to wherever you’re going, and get a tap on the wrist when it’s time to turn.

    Tap into thousands of apps with the App Store.
    The App Store on Apple Watch lets you find and download apps straight to your watch without having to take out your iPhone.

    Apple+ Fitness. Make your move.

    As it's a new feature, here's more on Blood O2

    You can measure your blood oxygen levels with the Blood Oxygen app.

    The Blood Oxygen app can allow you to measure the oxygen level of your blood on-demand directly from your wrist, providing you with insights into your overall wellness. Measurements taken with the Blood Oxygen app are not intended for medical use and are only designed for general fitness and wellness purposes.

    The Blood Oxygen app, initially, is only available in certain countries and regions.

    What is blood oxygen?
    Your blood oxygen level represents the percentage of oxygen your red blood cells carry from your lungs to the rest of your body. Knowing how well your blood performs this vital task can help you understand your overall wellness.

    The majority of people have a blood oxygen level of 95-99%. However, some people live a normal life with blood oxygen levels below 95%.

    How to use the Blood Oxygen app
    Make sure that you meet the below requirements and follow the steps to set up the Blood Oxygen app.

    Here's what you need
    Make sure that the Blood Oxygen app is available in your country or region. You will be able to see this during the setup process.
    Update your iPhone 6s or later to the latest version of iOS.
    Update your Apple Watch Series 6 to the latest version of watchOS.*
    The Blood Oxygen app is not available for use by people under 18 years old.

    *The Blood Oxygen app is not available if you set up your Apple Watch with Family Setup.

    Set up the Blood Oxygen app and background readings

    • On your iPhone, open the Health app.
    • Follow the on-screen steps. If you don't see a prompt to set up, tap the Browse tab, then tap Respiratory > Blood Oxygen > Set up Blood Oxygen.
    • After you complete setup, open the Blood Oxygen app on your Apple Watch to measure your blood oxygen levels.
    • If you still don’t see the Blood Oxygen app on your Apple Watch, you can search the App Store on your Apple Watch for Blood Oxygen and download it.
    • The Blood Oxygen app is installed during the setup in the Health app. If you deleted the Blood Oxygen app, you can install it again from the App Store on your Apple Watch if you’ve completed the Blood Oxygen app setup.


    Take a blood oxygen measurement

    • You can take a blood oxygen measurement at any time with the Blood Oxygen app.
    • Make sure that your Apple Watch is snug but comfortable on your wrist.
    • Open the Blood Oxygen app on your Apple Watch.
    • Stay still, and make sure your wrist is flat with the Apple Watch facing up.
    • Tap Start, then keep your arm steady for 15 seconds.
    • Wait. The measurement takes 15 seconds. At the end of the measurement, you will receive the results.
    • Tap Done.


    About background measurements
    The Blood Oxygen app on your Apple Watch will occasionally measure your blood oxygen levels if background measurements are on. This will usually happen when you are not moving. Depending on how active you are, the number of readings collected each day and the time between these readings will vary. Blood oxygen measurements use a bright red light that shines against your wrist, so it may be more visible in dark environments. If you find the light distracting, you can turn off background measurements.

    Open the Settings app on your Apple Watch.
    Tap Blood Oxygen, then turn off In Sleep Mode and In Theatre Mode.
    Blood oxygen measurements only occur during sleep if the Track Sleep with Apple Watch setting is turned on.

    How the Blood Oxygen app works
    In Apple Watch Series 6, the optical heart sensor has been redesigned to add blood oxygen measurement capabilities. During a blood oxygen measurement, the back crystal shines red and green LEDs and infrared light onto your wrist. Photodiodes then measure the amount of light reflected back.

    Advanced algorithms use this data to calculate the colour of your blood. The colour determines your blood oxygen level — bright red blood has more oxygen, while dark red blood has less.

    How to get the best results
    Rest your arms on a table or in your lap while you take a measurement with the Apple Watch facing up. Keep your wrist flat and stay as still as you can.

    Make sure that your Apple Watch isn’t loose on your wrist. The band should be snug but comfortable, and the back of your Apple Watch needs to be touching your wrist.

    Make sure that the back of your Apple Watch is flush with the top of your wrist. If your wrist bones interfere with this, move your watch up your arm away from your wrist bone.

    Additional factors
    Even under ideal conditions, your Apple Watch may not be able to get a reliable blood oxygen measurement every time. For a small percentage of users, various factors may make it impossible to get any blood oxygen measurement.

    • Skin perfusion (or how much blood flows through your skin) can impact measurements. Skin perfusion varies significantly from person to person and can also be impacted by the environment. If you are out in the cold, for example, the skin perfusion in your wrist may be too low for the sensor to work with the Blood Oxygen app to get a measurement.
    • Permanent or temporary changes to your skin, such as some tattoos, can also impact performance. The ink, pattern and saturation of some tattoos can block light from the sensor, making it difficult for the Blood Oxygen app to get a measurement.
    • Motion is another factor that can affect your ability to get successful background or on-demand measurements. Certain postures, such as arms hanging by your side or fingers in a fist position will also result in unsuccessful measurements.
    • If your heart rate is too high (above 150 bpm) while at rest, you won't be able to get a successful blood oxygen measurement.

    View your Health information

    All blood oxygen measurements, whether on demand or in the background, are saved in the Health app on your iPhone.

    Open the Health app.
    Tap the Browse tab, then tap Respiratory > Blood Oxygen.
    You can also filter and view measurements taken only while sleeping or in a high-elevation environment.

    Notes: Blood Oxygen app measurements are not intended for medical use, including self-diagnosis or consultation with a doctor, and are only designed for general fitness and wellness purposes.

    The Blood Oxygen app is designed for users who are at least 18 years old.

    Slightly lower values are expected while sleeping, and some users may experience values below 95%.
