Oxygen transportation and utilization are 2 critical factors in athletic performance and endurance. However, the lack of accuracy demonstrated by wrist-worn tracking devices creates the need for an alternate device providing more accurate and personalized analytics.
Currently, none of the most popular smartwatches have been well validated in measuring SpO2, although millions of people are using them daily to monitor SpO2 at home, some even for clinical purposes.
This study aims to assess whether wearable devices can provide precise SpO2 measurements when compared to commercial pulse oximeters.
This study aims to evaluate the accuracy of the Garmin Forerunner 245 heart rate (HR) and pulse O2 saturation (SpO2) sensors compared with electrocardiogram and medical oximeter, from sea level to high altitude.
The recent explosion of wearable technology and the associated concerns prompted the International Federation of Sports Medicine (FIMS) to create a quality assurance standard for wearable devices.
Wearable sleep technology holds promise for advancing understanding of sleep health; however, a careful path forward needs to be navigated, understanding the benefits and pitfalls of this technology.
This study compares heart rate (HR) measurements for the Fitbit Charge HR 2 (Fitbit) and the Apple Watch devices with HR measurements for electrocardiogram (ECG) in thirty young adults.
The type of exercise you engage in could change the accuracy of your readings. The use of wearable activity monitors has seen rapid growth; however, the mode and intensity of exercise could affect the validity of heart rate (HR) and caloric (energy) expenditure (EE) readings.
Athletes and members of the public increasingly rely on wearable HR monitors to guide physical activity and training. This study assesses the accuracy of five optically based HR monitors during various types of aerobic exercise.
The main purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy of wristband activity monitors on measuring step counts at prescribed speeds on a treadmill and under short bouts of common daily activities.
