Oxa’s Bluetooth configuration makes it possible to connect to and share certain vital measurements with other manufacturers' hardware. We call this "standalone mode".
The Oxa sensor can be used in standalone mode without using our app and services, and Oxa may be compatible with some existing apps. Of course, the Oxa device and services are designed to be used in conjunction with each other to provide the best possible experience.
Note that not all information, such as respiration, is available when used in standalone mode. That's because there is no standard Bluetooth profile for respiration rate (basically other manufacturers don’t have a way to receive the data from Oxa). Only the Oxa app can display the full vital information. When you use the sensor in standalone mode, we do not collect any data, but the app/device you use may do so.
To connect the Oxa sensor to another device, shake the sensor to make sure it's available for Bluetooth pairing, and initiate the search for other Bluetooth devices from your third-party device.
Note that when you use the sensor in standalone mode, we cannot provide you with software updates and you may not have the latest innovations with the best data quality. Therefore, we recommend that you regularly use the Oxa app to check if a software update is available for the sensor.
