Yes. If you're trying to lose weight, consider a HRM that provides information about calories burned. If you're just getting started, a simple heart rate only monitor is your best bet. They're easy to program and there are no buttons to push. If you're an athlete who enjoys competition, consider a HRM that provides feedback from your workout. These advanced HRM's memorize your workouts (heart rates, lap times and time spent in your THR zone) and allow you to monitor your progress.

Change battery in OxyWatch oximeter


First off, figure out what model of oximeter you have. There seem to be about 6 different ones.

Email the manufacturer at;
support@choicemmedamerica.com

Ask them for a service manual for the model that you have. And also for explicit instructions on how to change the batter, and what type of replacement battery it uses.

What exactly is a pulse oximeter?


A pulse oximeter is a medical device that indirectly monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient's blood (as opposed to measuring oxygen saturation directly through a blood sample) and changes in blood volume in the skin, producing a photoplethysmogram.

While connected it says "please check connection and try again"


A few things could be going on.
First the unit
1. Remove and replace the battery to "reset" the unit.
2. If the batteries are old, they might need replaced.
3. If it has been used and is dirty, clean the sensors.
Second the finger
1. If there is poor circulation from: low heart rate, poor circulation, or cold fingers, the unit will have difficulty.
2. Dark pigmented skin can cause errors.
3. Fingernail polish will cause errors.
Here is some more info for your finger oximeter

No reading for the blood oxygen level


OK - I had the exact same problem. I cleaned the inside of the oximeter with a cotton swab and denatured alcohol. Then tried it. It did not work. Darn. But I tried it an hour later, and suddenly, it started to work perfectly. I do not know what went wrong, and why it did not work immediately after cleaning. Maybe it was still damp from the alcohol? Unlikely, but I cannot figure out anything else. Anyway, try that and see if it solves the problem for you, and if the oximeter does not work for the first hour or so after cleaning, don't give up on it. Good luck.
