Motiv Smart Ring – Does it monitor SPO2?

The Motiv smart ring does not measure pulse oximetry in its current version

In my question to Motiv’s customer support:

Does the motiv ring have the capability to monitor blood oxygen saturation / SPO2 / pulse oximetry?

They replied

Hi Luke,

Thank you for your interest in the Motiv Ring. While the Motiv Ring can detect your pulse, it does not monitor blood oxygen saturation.

Cheers,

Bragi The Dash Blood Oxygen Saturation Measurement (Pulse Oximeter Sensors)

It seems, although The Dash sports “dual pulse oximeter sensors”, it currently is only capable of measuring heart rate with these sensors. Bragi has informed me that, although blood oxygen measurement is possible, it is not a high priority on the roadmap at this time:

From the hardware perspective, it is definitely possible to measure blood oxygen saturation. This was also communicated as a long-term goal when having designed The Dash. However, the operating system has many different conditions that need to be held when wanting to implement this feature. Therefore, Bragi OS still needs to be developed so that measuring further body vitals is possible. I hope it is understandable that our developers were not able to implement those features, yet.
