Where to buy replacement probe for Contec CMS 50F Oximeter

RE: Where to buy replacement probe for Contec CMS 50F Oximeter
It's the probe with the velcro strap and the USB-C connector -- the "boot" probe that went with the original CMS 50F has a mini-USB connector I think? (I bought one of the original-style CMS 50F off of ebay which was DOA. I think that it was so old that the battery had failed.)

I'm pretty sure that they are different devices, and you would certainly need some sort of USB adaptor if you tried old-style probe with new-style recorder. But I wouldn't be sure that it would work. The old style certainly looks more durable than the fragile piece of crap!

My husband thinks that the right way to do it is with a bluetooth between the probe and wristband. Then there is no cord to yank.

I didn't have a problem with the velcro, but I wore it on my ring finger. I think that it would have been too small on my middle finger. I've got arthritis in that DIP joint anyway.

RE: Where to buy replacement probe for Contec CMS 50F Oximeter
I'm not where I can be sure, but do believe I have two "rubber" finger sensors from CMS50I oximeters, both of which had battery failure after about two years of nightly use and those won't be replaced. 

As I recall the connector is male, USB mini B. Red or Cathy can likely answer if that boot will work on the 50F. Given PMs with addresses, I could mail them out free--assuming I can find them as expected. Also, it's likely I have the finger wrap sensor that came with 50I's for a child.
I have no particular qualifications or expertise with respect to the apnea/cpap/sleep related content of my posts beyond my own user experiences and what I've learned from others on this site. Each of us bears the burden of evaluating the validity and applicability of what we read here before acting on it.  

Of my 3 once-needed, helpful, and adjunctive devices I have listed, only the accelerometer remains operative (but now idle). My second CMS50I died, too, of old age and the so-so Dreem 2 needs head-positioning band repair--if, indeed, Dreem even supports use of it now.

Speaking for the "F" and "I" models that I have, the probes are interchangeable. If the OP can take a closeup picture of both connectors (base unit and probe) then we might be able to offer a better opinion.

If I have a picture on my phone that I want to post to AB, I transfer it to my computer by email of downloading, then use the regular attachment procedure.
It's easier than trying to use AB on the phone's browser...

While the connector on the booted sensor looks like a mini-USB, I have looked at it with a magnifiying glass. I am convinced that it is a custom connector with more than four or five contacts; it looks like there are contacts on two sides.
It is possible that the new USB-C style connector is similarly customised.

I have a universal USB cable that allows me to plug in various USB plug types and sizes on each end.    My "F" and "I" models had no problem connecting to my PC for both charging and communication.   My devices were acquired in 2014. The version is displayed as 3.7.
