Unlike its predecessors, this model can measure your blood oxygen saturation, or SpO2, which represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body. It does so by using four clusters of green, red, and infrared LEDs, along with the four photodiodes on the back crystal of Apple Watch, to measure light reflected back from blood. Product page.

The Apple Watch then utilizes an advanced custom algorithm built into the Blood Oxygen app, which is designed to measure blood oxygen between 70 percent and 100 percent. Real-time measurements can be taken while the user is still, while periodic background measurements happen when inactive, like during sleep. It’s also much snappier, thanks to Apple’s A13 Bionic chip. The upgraded S6 SiP runs up to 20 percent faster, which means apps also launch 20 percent faster.
