Lionel Tarassenko provides comment on medical monitoring apps at the time of Apple's release of its latest smart watch. In conjunction with an app, the Apple Watch Series 6 can measure oxygen saturation levels in users’ blood, low blood oxygen being a symptom of COVID-19. Tarassenko has previously advised against using smartphone apps that claim to track coronvirus symptoms. Although it is not intended for medical use, Tarassenko says the new Apple Watch is a "credible and technically sound” device.
