So…today for the first time, our of nowhere I get a message saying my respiratory analysis RDI = ~1. But I don’t have anything wearable to measure this. No oximeter or anything. Is this due to the updated app?

On 7/31 I too had an unexpected message… “Respiratory analysis RDI = ~3 (Normal)”
I don’t have a pulse oximeter so where did this come from?
Also - since I wear a CPAP nightly I’d been questioning the breathing rates that were intermittently being reported.
Unfortunately these errors have given me doubts about the app as a whole.

Yes. My Garmin vivosmart 4 isn’t supported on its oximeter. Is it going by sound?

Same here, March 2021…

I also wear a CPAP. What kind of oxygen readings should I be seeing?
