Blood oxygen tracking feature available on Fitbit trackers with Sp02 sensor

The Fitbit Ionic is one of the several fitness trackers with a Sp02 sensor.

If you’re using a Fitbit Ionic, Versa, Versa Lite, Versa 2 and Charge 3, the blood oxygen tracking feature could be available on your fitness tracker.

According to 9to5Google, there are increasing number of reports from Fitbit users about “Estimated Oxygen Variation” being available on their fitness trackers. The "Estimated Oxygen Variation" graph can be accessed in the Sleep data tab. 

The Sp02 sensor, which remained dormant until now, tracks the variability of oxygen levels in your blood with the red and infrared sensors on the back of the Fitbit device. While it is normal to see fluctuations in blood oxygen saturation, big variations can be linked to breathing issues.
