- Nonin Onyx II® 9560 Bluetooth pulse oximeter
- ChoiceMmed MD300C318 Bluetooth pulse oximeter
Android Device Compatibility: SimpleEye Bluetooth Pulse Oximeter has been tested and verified with Android 2.0 (Motorola® Droid on Verizon®), 2.1 (LG® Ally on Verizon® and T-Mobile® myTouch 3G Slide running HTC® SenseUI) and 2.2 (Google® Nexus One on T-Mobile®). Some minor issues that should not prevent measurements from being taken have been observed with Android 2.1 devices running the HTC® Sense UI and certain Samsung devices (models I5701 and I5801): the Bluetooth implementations on these devices have unresolved errors.
The application will then check to see if Bluetooth is enabled. If not, it will request that Bluetooth be turned on, as shown in Figure 2 below. Bluetooth must be activated to use the Bluetooth features of the software.
Tapto approve the request: Bluetooth will turn on as shown in Figure 3 below.
If this is the first time the application is started, the help screen will show as in Figure 4 below.
The main measurement recording screen will show as seen in Figure 5 below.

If your pulse oximeter is not currently on, turn it on now (as discussed here) and once the pulse oximeter is ready tap the Connect button to connect to the pulse oximeter. A connection will be initiated to the Bluetooth pulse oximeter as shown in Figure 13 below.
Once connected, the select button will be disabled and the Connect button will switch to Disconnect as shown in Figure 14 below. The Record button will also appear. The Details label will be updated with the most recent available measurement, and the chart will update with the pulse oxygen values as they are received.
Tapto open up the chart data menu as shown in Figure 16 below.
Tap themenu option to switch to the Heart Rate option. As shown in Figure 17 below, the chart will reset to display the heart rate and the label on the chart will update.
