The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor hails its product as the lightest and smallest Sp02 sleep monitor on the market. Equipped with a patented thumb sensor, the 02 Vibe Sleep and Fitness Monitor offers some big features for such a small package.

The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor fits comfortably around your wrist to ensure it does not disturb you at night. The included thumb sensor is attached to the 02 Vibe via USB. Biomimetics claims that no other pulse oximeter provides this capability and if this is true, it is certainly a smart design choice.

The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor features

The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor is well known to be the most accurate readings of blood oxygen levels that are recorded through the capillaries on the human hand. The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor thumb sensors work in just this way by shining two small beams into the capillaries of the finger and recording the amount of oxygen present in the blood.

These measurements are then displayed on the 02 Vibe’s indicator screen in an easy to read format. The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor takes only 2 hours to charge fully. The device lasts up to 5 hours on one charge when recording fitness activities and up to 10 hours when measuring sleep.

While this may seem like an impressive battery life upon first glance, the amount of data that the device constantly recording is likely the cause.

The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor has an easy to use interface. The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor monitor delivers daily reports via its iOS/Android friendly companion app. Many users have praised the app for its simplicity and ease of use.

The vibration from the BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor is subtle enough that it won’t disturb your sleeping partner but encourages you to change sleeping positions. The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor blood oxygen level tracking is also highly customizable. Users can indicate the exact threshold that their blood oxygen level must drop below before receiving a vibration. This is a feature absent in many competitors with similar products.

There are a variety of other useful features present in 02 Vibe’s sleep mode tracking. The device also offers an in-depth look at overall sleep quality by monitoring heart rate and movement during sleep. By observing and generating reports on heart rate and movement during sleep, the user can better understand specific factors that may be blamed for their restlessness.

The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor mode offers two different operating statuses, normal mode, and hibernation mode. Each mode begins recording data within 2 minutes, but the hibernation mode eliminates any bright light from the 02 Vibe indicator so that you can fall asleep easily.

To view your Sp02 readings at any point during the night, simply remove the thumb tracker for 10 or more seconds. It is worth noting that the 02 Vibe is in a league all it’s own when it comes to the widely accepted idea of what a sleep tracking device does.

With the BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor fitness tracking mode, users can also track their heart rate and blood oxygen saturation levels during light exercise. You can also set daily activity goals, and the 02 Vibe will push you to get up and to move when you fall short of your goal by alerting you with a notification.

By viewing the sleep and fitness mode tracking results together, you can get an idea of how your activities during the day affect your sleep at night. It is also helpful to see how a more restless night’s sleep affects your energy level the following day.

The BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor verdict

Unlike any other products we have reviewed in the past the 02 Vibe does not place its focus upon sleep phases like most of its competitors. This means that for those without certain cardiovascular issues such as sleep apnea, there is only so much value present in the BodiMetrics O2 Vibe Sleep & Fitness Monitor. The users won’t get an in-depth look at their sleep activity during different stages of sleep, and if the 02 Vibe does not detect obvious health issues, there will be little useful data.
