Garmin oximeter compatibility

There is a Sleep as Android app for Garmin smart watches but it doesn’t take advantage of the spo2 oximeter readings that these watches gather. The only oximeter currently supported by sleep as android was a terrible device. It lasted for two months before the power port became loose and shorted out. I’m not buying another one of those. Please add oximeter support to the Garmin connect IQ app!

Hello, sorry about your experience with the Berry Med oximeter. We are monitoring this closely, but at the moment we do not know about a device which would make the SPO2 data available through an API and at the same time had a design which is comfortable enough for tracking SPO2 during sleep…

Unfortunately Garmin does not make the SPO2 data available for 3rd parties…

I didn’t know that Garmin doesn’t allow that. Thank you for getting back to me! Hopefully in the future they will change that policy.

Yes hopefully, we are also looking at FitBit… but this is the same situation as Garmin… also we are not yet sure how reliable will data from the wrist be compared to the standard sensor placement on the finger…
