Fitbit Oxygen Variation Graph Feature Now Available For Users

Consumer electronics company Fitbit recently announced a new feature for activity and fitness trackers. The company is rolling out its Oxygen variation graph feature. This feature was already announced by Fitbit last year in August and the rollout comes about six months after the announcement. Fitbit shared that the actual rollout started in January and it gradually expanded to cover more fitness band models. While looking to the feature, it uses the infrared sensors present at the back of the activity trackers to track the "variability" in the blood for "blood oxygen saturation level".

The Oxygen variation graph will be located in the Sleep tile. And the user can check the graph that "approximates the changes" in blood oxygen saturation level while he/she is sleeping. It is a measure of percent of blood that is saturated with Oxygen at any given time. This level should be 95-100 % at any regular time, ie,  the blood is carrying as much oxygen as possible. If your breath stops or if you have any other respiratory issue, the percent of saturation will fall down, ie, the variation should be less with consistent changes. And if you see such variations, it could hint that something is disturbing your sleep. . If you need accurate blood oxygen saturation level, then must look for dedicated medical equipment. The company also clarified that the measurement is merely an estimate. 

As per the announcement from the company, the feature is available for Fitbit Charge 3, Versa, Versa Lite, Versa 2 and Ionic users. Also, the company tells that this feature rollout serves as a testament to the continuous effort that they puts in to improve their products.
