For what it's worth, I have a Series 7 and after the update, my blood O2 sensor still works.

I will say what I always say when it is watch Update day. I really wish there was a better way to update the watch. It's slow, it gives me a little anxiety because I'm in the process of ring closing for the day, and I hate that I have to put a fully charged watch on my charger to make sure the update runs properly. It's the 10th anniversary of the watch. Can we come up with a way to streamline the process?

That's probably what I'm looking most forward to with the new OS at WWDC. Streamline Watch Update Days where they go a lot more smoothly than they typically go.

Why are you trying to spread misinformation and FUD about this? It has been made perfectly clear that watches sold before 1/18/2024 will continue to have O2 functionality.
