And he suggests that an inexpensive device ($25 and up) called a pulse oximeter, obtainable at a pharmacy or online without a prescription, could give a person an early warning that they were taking in less oxygen. He says people who get medical intervention before their lungs crash have a much better recovery and survival.
So I have heard that Garmin wearables can check āpulse oxā so I went onto Garmin Connect to search for the widget for my 645M. I couldnāt find one. If you have this app on your Garmin, could you tell me its name?
And, interestingly, hours after I went online to Garmin Connect to search for the app, Garmin sent me an email describing the ways its wearables can alert you to changes in your health, but it didnāt point me to a pulse ox app.
The note did suggest taking part in a mass study that uses the MyDataHelps app to help researchers aggregate health info from Garmin users. I downloaded the app but have not signed up yet, because I want to understand better where the data is going and how it will be used.
