Back in December last year, Huawei revealed the Huawei Watch GT 2 as the company’s latest high-end offering in the wearable market. However, it took several months to reach Europe. The device finally came with Huawei P40 series big revelation in March. Now that Huawei has completed its “availability-plan” for Huawei Watch GT 2 the company is dropping a new firmware update that enables the SpO2 sensor.
This particular sensor has been present but disabled in India for several months. Through the new 18.104.22.168 firmware update, the Indian users will finally be able to enjoy the benefits brought by it. If you’re unaware of which are these benefits we are here to explain. The SpO2 sensors on wearables, among other things, can help in monitoring the level of blood oxygen. This is a highly-requested feature for athletes and now with the COVID-19 becomes useful for everyone. According to the World Health Organization, the oxygen count in a person should be 95-100% in a healthy person.
In the worst cases of the new coronavirus, the breathing-function is compromised. A handly blood-oxygen monitor can even help patients with the virus to monitor if the disease is advancing. Interestingly enough, that’s a feature that comes straight out the box in the newer Huawei Watch GT 2e. Of course, it’s always recommended to look for a hospital and follow your country’s guidelines to prevent COVID-19.
