What is the best overnight oximeter for home use? - Wellue O2 Ring Oxygen Monitor review
“PROTECTING YOUR SLEEP”
So, you thought you’re sleeping well and even dreaming about cute, pink unicorns.
You probably are.
But, you may also experience sudden breath stops or oxygen deterioration in the blood. In short, Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA.
I doubt that!
Yeah, well, normal people don’t really experience its symptoms and it’s not that easy to detect during the first phase— you only wake up lethargic and feeling sleepy during the day. And you may think, “Oh, I only need some sleep.”
Whether or not you have sleep apnea or your partner complains about your loud snoring every night, perhaps it is time to monitor your sleep.
Duh. How do I track it if I’m sleeping?
“SLEEP WITH PEACE OF MIND”
This is the tagline of the Wellue O2Ring— a medical-grade ring that monitors and tracks your sleep, silently and immediately vibrating when abnormal heart rate and/or low oxygen levels are detected.
Well, check this out:

A: Don’t pair in your phone’s system setting. Just make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your phone.
