To monitor blood O2 Apple added a new sensor that is made up of four LED clusters and four photodiodes. These four LED clusters shining lights (RED, Green, and infrared light) onto your blood vessels in the wrist. The reflected backlight is measured by the four photodiodes. Apple’s advanced algorithm then calculates the colour of your blood and shows you the blood oxygen level in your body. The apple series 6 watches completed this task in just 15 seconds.
