    The fine folks at iFixit have gotten their eager hands on a 38mm Apple Watch Sport, and are publishing their results on their site.

    They've included a fun and enlightening comparison of the Apple Watch innards to those of a pocketwatch from circa 1890. C'est magnifique!

    Et voilà:

    Wonder why they didn't go into the port that is under the band?

    The iFixit team has discovered a "hidden, currently dormant feature" in the Apple Watch: a sensor that measures blood oxygen level. The iFixit team member says that it is a plethysmograph. I am not a medical professional; therefore, I am not commenting on the accuracy or lack thereof of their statement. I am merely posting this for informational purposes only.

    Ooops… what was wrong with it? I've read it several times and can't seem to find the error. I Googled the phrase and it seems to be out there quite a bit.
