SpO2 stands for peripheral capillary oxygen saturation, an estimate of the amount of oxygen in the blood. More specifically, it is the percentage of oxygenated haemoglobin (haemoglobin containing oxygen) compared to the total amount of haemoglobin in the blood ( oxygenated and non-oxygenated haemoglobin).

SpO2 is an estimate of arterial oxygen saturation, or SaO2, which refers to the amount of oxygenated haemoglobin in the blood.

Haemoglobin is a protein that carries oxygen in the blood. It is found inside red blood cells and gives them their red colour.

SpO2 can be measured by Pulseimetry, an indirect, non-invasive method (meaning it does not involve the introduction of instruments into the body). It works by emitting and then absorbing a light wave passing through blood vessels (or capillaries) in the fingertip. A variation of the light wave passing through the finger will give the value of the SpO2 measurement because the degree of oxygen saturation causes variations in the blood’s colour.

This value is represented by a percentage. If your Withings Pulse says 98%, this means that each red blood cell is made up of 98% oxygenated and 2% non-oxygenated haemoglobin. Normal SpO2 values vary between 90 and 100%.

Good blood oxygenation is necessary to supply the energy your muscles need in order to function, which increases during a sports activity. If your SpO2 value is below 90%, that could be a sign of poor blood oxygenation, also called hypoxia.

Note that it is advisable to use your device to measure your oxygen level in the blood when at rest (especially after physical activity). Also, note that low blood flow may prevent the measurement or cause an error. In this case, check that the watch is correctly positioned and try again. Do not move or speak during the measurement.

 



ScanWatch is the most advanced watch conceived by Withings. It owns a PPG for heart rate monitoring and has the ability to monitor oxygen levels (SpO2). ScanWatch can also detect sleep apnea and has 3 electrodes to provide an ECG. Click here for more information.
