Can Apple Watch Series 6 pick up on early signs of the coronavirus?

Apple’s Series 6 Watch comes with the ability to measure blood oxygen levels. This does not just end here. Apple will also partner with researchers to see if the sensors deployed could pick up early symptoms of COVID-19. Blood oxygen level determines overall respiratory health and low levels can be an indicator of Coronavirus. Sensors on the watch shoot red and infrared light into the wearer’s wrist and measure the amount of light reflected. This helps in measuring the blood oxygen level. Though low blood oxygen level is an indicator of the virus, Apple says “Blood Oxygen app measurements are not intended for medical use and are only designed for general fitness and wellness purposes.
