Fitness and getting healthy are always a good thing and there seems to be a slew of fitness related products flooding the market but there are standard medical products that do similar functions that can be useful for those trying to be fit. Up for review today I have the Volmate VOL60A Pulse Oximeter which is used to measure your pulse rate and blood oxygen saturation which can be helpful for those that need to know those things for medical reason but also for fitness related activities where you want to monitor those things. The VOL60A is inexpensive and includes a carrying case, lanyard and even batteries and from my testing and comparison it’s accurate. Read on to learn more…

Let’s start with a video unboxing and then move on from there:
The packaged for the Volmate pulse oximeter is nice looking with information on the back for you. When you open the box you’re greeted with documentation and then under that you’ll see the pulse oximeter and carrying case in a sectional tray.
Once you unpack the box you’ll find user guide, certification and warranty along with a carrying case and the pulse oximeter itself.
The top of the oximeter is mostly the display with a single gray button under it.
The oximeter is spring loaded and you squeeze the back to open it and inside you can see the sensors.
The bottom is where the batteries go, the cover just slides off and on easily.
The carrying case is, I believe, a neoprene material with a loop and ring on the back and it’s fastened closed with velcro.
During shipping they store the batteries and lanyard inside of the carrying case. The lanyard doesn’t actually attach to the pulse oximeter, it attaches to the case itself.
The display is easy to read with nice bright red numbers along with a battery indicator at the corner.
Using the pulse oximeter is very easy, push the button to turn it on, open it up by squeezing the back and insert your finger and let it close and within seconds you’ll have a reading.
My wife is a nurse and she has a pulse oximeter so I borrowed it to compare to the Volmate and the results very virtually identical at 96/76 and 96/75.
As far as quality, the Volmate seems comparable to the one my wife has been using for years, both are plastic, but only time will tell how long the Volmate will last but it seems well made.
When it comes to medical devices I think you need to be wary of what you buy as they do need to be accurate and reliable and from testing the Volmate VOL60A is accurate and should be reliable.
This of course isn’t just for medical uses you can use it for fitness and other outdoor activities where you might wan t to monitor your pulse and blood oxygen, so it does have other uses.
It is inexpensive and comes with a nice carrying case, batteries and lanyard for the price.
My wife is a registered nurse and I compared the Volmate to her pulse oximeter and the results seemed the same so I would have to say it’s accurate and that’s truly what you want to see in a device like this.
