There may be some friends who don't know much about oxygen saturation. As an important vital sign, it will directly affect the normal operation of our body's skills. In daily life, as long as the blood oxygen saturation is less than 90%, it is easy to cause fatigue, panic, lack of energy and other symptoms, long-term this will damage our health.

Algorithm training and other measures, the pulse oxygen saturation was measured. At present, only a single measurement can be achieved, and real-time monitoring is not supported, but it is believed that such a technology will be gradually overcome in the future. The measured results will be displayed on the bracelet and uploaded to the phone's app. We can also keep abreast of our physical changes on the phone's app and pay close attention to our health.


The Honor band 5 also features Huawei's TruSeen3.5 heart rate technology, which has a professional customized device that provides users with more accurate heart rate monitoring through self-developed algorithms, and adopts an innovative PPG module design.
