Apple Watch Series 6 Update

Apple Watch Series 6 Update: The most awaited Apple Watch Series 6 is here. The latest watch unveiled in Apple’s “Time Flies” event on September 15th. This watch may look identical to the previous versions, series 4 and series 5, but I bet they cannot match this watch’s processing speed and high-performance. 

Blood Oxygen Sensor in the Latest Apple Watch

Apple has taken a step towards wellness with the new feature in Apple Watch Series 6 with a blood oxygen sensor and an app that measures and displays your oxygen levels. With an approach towards a healthier and active life, this watch on your wrist will keep you updated about your fitness levels every second. 

Apple leverages the fact that oxygen levels account for indicating health. The sensors on Apple Watch constantly monitor your body’s oxygen levels and give you reading anytime you wish. It is always checking in the background, 24/7. 

The blood oxygen sensor has a cluster of 8 sensors, out of which 4 are LED clusters, and 4 are photodiodes. These sensors are mounted on the back and provides you to the blood oxygen levels. 

The LEDs emit green, red, and infrared lights into your skin through the watch to calculate the blood oxygen levels. The photodiodes will assess the amount of light reflected, and then various algorithms will determine the color of your blood to calculate your blood oxygen levels.
