Reading Blood Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) and Pulse through MySignals / Arduino

The MySignals HW BLE v2 – eHealth and Medical IoT Development Platform for Arduino contains sensors that measure more than 20 biometric parameters. One of the most interesting is the Bluetooth LE SpO2 sensor. How to get started reading live data and visualizing it on the TFT display of the board?

What is the MySignals HW Kit?

The MySignals HW kit contains a shield that requires an Arduino Uno as base. In contrast to the (more expensive) MySignals SW kit, the HW kit is rather basic. Powering it up results in a white screen, instead of a nice interface on the screen. The rest is up to the software developer. As the development is based on Arduino, you need the latest version of the Arduino IDE.
