and it does. here's one (there may be others):

there are also apps that claim to do it. they're not as accurate, but

<https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pulse-oximeter-heart-rate-and-oxygen...
nitor-app/id775632066?mt=8>

the apple watch monitors resting heart rate and during workouts, but it
currently does not have a pulse oximeter even though the hardware can
do it. perhaps it's a certification issue. it's coming.
