Which companies manufacture SpO2 sensors for Fitbit and Apple Watch?

As the question states. I used my good friend Google, who served up far more chaff than wheat.

Which company(ies) manufacturer the blood oxygen sensors for Fitbit and Apple Watch? Thanks.

Thanks UncleWede . I know there are quite a few physicians and healthcare providers on this site. Anyone with familiarity of the manufacturers of SpO2 sensors, and which ones Fitbit and Apple are using?

Nonin, BCI & Nellcor are manufacturers. As to which Foxconn, Wistron, Pegatron, Goertek, Qualcom, Murata or Samsung are using to sell to Apple, I have no clue. That should at least give you a decent starting point.

Thanks King Rudi I ran across Welch Allyn and Masimo. Looking on each of these companies' websites, I didn't see mention of miniature or wearable sensors, at the size/form factor a watch requires.

Is it possible one of these companies is producing for Fitbit or Apple, and not indicating it on their websites?

It is possible. I didn't do much digging. I started with the manufacturers of apples products and reverse searched to see who made the SpO2 sensors to sells to those manufacturers. Not sure why they would want to keep it a secret though. We proudly rep the companies that we manufacture for.
