What about all the data?  I have been collecting data on this for almost a year!  I use this data with my doctor and I can no longer find it.

This does not work. I have a Note 10+. I removed the Samsung Health App then found the APK version form APK Mirror. I installed the 6.4 version and made sure to disable updates. I checked to make sure the version I have on my phone is the 6.4 version. Oxygen saturation is not there.

 

And at this time, with Coronavirus, it is very important to be able to check Oxygeneation without having to go to a doctor's office to determine if you can stay at home if you have been infected.

I'm using S9 and oxygen saturation now seem to be measured as part of a stress level test. When you click 'measure' it shows you readings for heart rate and oxygen saturation. Hope this helps!

I have a Galaxy S10e running Android 10.  I installed Samsung Health today (4/24/20), so I'm using the latest version.  I did this explicitly to use the oxygen saturation feature.  Of course I found it wasn't there; I do see the 1/22/20 notice, "Oxygen saturation measurement is moving", which says "In the stress tracker, if Measure multiple is turned on, your oxygen saturation level will be included in your results."

However, there's no stress tracker/measurement function.  I enabled the permissions most likely to be involved (Body sensors, Camera, and Storage) and it didn't appear so I enabled all the requested permissions.  Still no stress tracker.

In the app description in Google Play it says "Tablets and some mobile devices may not be supported.  Some functions may not be available based on regions/service providers/devices."  I guess my phone & I fall into one of those categories.  Good luck to the rest of you!
