Today, Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 6 with its “revolutionary Blood Oxygen feature that gives users even more insight into their overall well-being.” During the summer of 2020, the Patent issued four patent reports which mentioned the measurement of oxygen levels in the blood as considered a future health function (01
Apple announced today in its press release that “Apple Watch Series 6 expands the health features of previous Apple Watch models with a new feature that conveniently measures oxygen saturation in the user’s blood so they can better understand their general fitness and well-being. Oxygen saturation, or SpO2, represents the percentage of oxygen carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body, and indicates how well this oxygen-containing blood is delivered through the body.
To compensate for natural variations in the skin and improve accuracy, the Blood Oxygen sensor uses four clusters of green, red and infrared LEDs along with the four photodiodes on the back of the Apple Watch to measure the light reflected back from blood.

Apple Watch then uses an advanced custom algorithm built into the Blood Oxygen app, which is designed to measure oxygen in the blood between 70 and 100 percent. On-demand measurements can be performed while the user is silent, and periodic background measurements occur when they are inactive, including during sleep. All data will be visible in the Health app, and the user will be able to track trends over time to see how the oxygen level in the blood changes.
Apple Watch Collection
In addition to Apple’s revolutionary Blood Oxygen algorithm and app, customers have more choices than ever when it comes to fantastic new cases and bands to suit any style preference.
For the first time, a new deep blue color is added to the options in silver, space gray and gold aluminum, together with a (PRODUCT) RED Apple Watch with exclusive matching bright red ribbons.

Stainless steel models are now available in graphite – a rich gray-black hue with a striking high-gloss finish – and an updated classic yellow-gold color. Apple Watch Edition is available in natural and roomy black titanium.
In August, Apple was granted an Apple Watch strap, as it is desirable with dynamic adjustment of the fit of portable electronic devices. Apple’s invention is able to increase comfort by offering adjustability over a continuous scale for density. For example, the watchband can be adjusted to any length, rather than to one of a few discrete lengths. It sounds very much like one of Apple’s new bands being presented today.
Design and performance
The Apple Watch Series 6 enhances performance through redesigned hardware that packs even more features and power into the same impressive little design. Using a new dual-core processor based on the A13 Bionic in the iPhone 11, the upgraded S6 SiP runs up to 20 percent faster, so apps can also start up 20 percent faster, while maintaining a full 18 hours of battery life throughout the day. , Apple Watch Series 6 features the U1 chip and Ultra Wideband antennas, 3 that will enable short range wireless placement to support new experiences, such as next-generation digital car keys. The Apple Watch Series 6 offers faster charging, full charge in less than 1.5 hours, and improved battery life for tracking certain workouts, such as indoor and outdoor races.
An enhanced Always-On Retina display on the Apple Watch Series 6 is up to 2.5 times brighter than the Apple Watch Series 5 outdoors when the user’s wrist is down, making it much easier to see a dial in bright sunlight. When the wrist is down, the user can now access the alert center and control center, tap complications and swipe to change face without having to wake up the clock screen.
Always on the altimeter
The ever-running altimeter provides real-time elevation throughout the day by using a new, more energy-efficient barometric altimeter, along with nearby GPS and Wi-Fi networks. This feature allows you to detect small elevation changes above ground level, up and down to 1 foot, and can be displayed as a new dial complication or exercise measurement.
