Apple Watch Series 6 is the only current model equipped with a blood oxygen wellness sensor. Therefore, at the time of writing the article, Series 6 is the only Apple Watch that can use the blood oxygen wellness app.

It seems that it is a mechanism to measure the oxygen concentration in the blood by reading it.
