Good oximeter for Oscar

Good oximeter for Oscar
I have thought to buy an oximeter. Can you recommend an oximeter to me who uses Linux (Kubuntu) and Oscar? Is there better oximeters and worse oximeters? I think that fine, if it costs just a few tens of euros.

RE: Good oximeter for Oscar
The least expensive oscar-compatible oximeter that I know of is the Contec CMS50D+. It is also the most uncomfortable to wear overnight. I slides over one finger, and is like a big blob there. It can also slide off easily. Next up is the Contec CMS50F, which is worn on the wrist and has a rubber-like probe that fits over a finger and won't slide off. I think there is a new firmware version that may not be OSCAR-compatible just yet ... but I will be working on that, as I have a Torontec B400 that looks and acts just like the Contec.

I have a CMS50F. Using it occasionally with SleepyHead software. Tried it once with OSCAR as well, and it worked fine. Not sure about Linux, as I use it on Mac, and sometimes on Win 10. As for the oximeter price, I've got mine from eBay. Forgot what the price was, but it wasn't too bad.

Maybe it is this.

[Commercial Link Removed] Search for Contec CMS50F

It is quite expensive if someone tries it a week or two. So I have thought that if it is possible to borrow such somewhere, it may be a cheap idea. Or if I buy it, I can use it so long how much I want. I think that an year is same kind than one or two weeks. Is it?
