Any views on the best value oximeter?

I have recently been doing simple deep breathing exercises several times a day as I believe it increases oxygen into the body thus helping all organs and I read it reduces cortisol (rises rapidly in the evenings for us males) and helps to make the body more alkaline.

I would like to buy not a state of the art but just a good value easy to operate oximeter and my first thought was to ask here. Any suggestions please?

What do you hope to achieve spending money on an Oximeter?

Do you have a prescribed oxygen saturation level to maintain? If you fall below the saturation level what are you going to do? There can be a perception of breathlessness with a prescribed oxygen saturation level.

I often think we have anxiety driven into buying machines and gadgets that have limited or no value.

Good cautionary point MtLsteven. I hope I am not falling into that trap. I just want to find out my normal level in the day, waking up in the night and the morning and after breathing exercises, which I have started recently and found beneficial.

Action on a low reading might be more regular deep breathing and nasal strips/window open at night.

I think, without going OTT, it is an important indicator, no surprise then that they always slap one on you when you go into hospital even for just a scan.
