In the Garmin Vivoactive 4, we can find a great feature for sports lovers since it has a pulse oximeter sensor to calculate how well your body absorbs oxygen and thus know if your health is in danger. On the other hand, to calculate your blood oxygen level, the device emits light on your skin and checks how much is absorbed. This parameter is known as SpO 2 .
