Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
#1
Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
Decided to purchase one and it arrived today. I purchased if off EBAY for just under $10.00 / free shipping. 

It also checks my pulse rate. Auto shut off as well. It seems to work well. There doesn't appear to be a brand name, other than a model #, which is LK88. It takes 2 AAA batteries, which are not supplied. It also came with a wrist lanyard.

Anyways, been wanting one for a good while. Finally decided to get around doing it.

RE: Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
Yeah, I've been curious for a long time and decided that it was time to buy one. 

The 1st one I ordered on EBAY, after I had paid for it, EBAY sent me a message stating that the seller was no longer authorized to be registered on EBAY. 

EBAY said that my money would be refunded. After waiting almost a week, it still wasn't. I had to contact EBAY (what a chore that was) and file a complaint. After one more week, my refund finally showed up in my PayPal account. 

After ordering another one (the one I have) and paying for it, I discovered that the seller had some negative feedback about not sending orders out. The vast majority of the items he sold were finger pulse 02 meters.  Oh-jeez

I held my breath.....and waited. Within a couple of days, my EBAY account showed that my item had shipped. It was only 1 day over the promised delivery date. Put some batteries in it and it worked.  Thumbs-up-2

Bought one from another source. Can't say where. Smile

Point is that it gave me peace of mind. Difficulty is that it's downstairs somewheres...I know you have a good dependable watch. Smile I would consider the apple watch except for it's cost here in Canada.

My watch is a Wenger (Swiss Army). Nothing fancy, but it does tell me the correct time, day, and date.  Cool
