So I had suspected sleep apnea and consultant arranged sleep monitoring device, quite industrial looking, result was ZERO episodes, not I did not wear my watch at the same time.

My watch regularly flags me below and some long periods.
Does this mean like blood pressure these functions are pointless and inaccurate.

Watch the YouTube review of the Watch5 Pro by "The Quantified Scientist". He specialises is post doctoral biomedical research so knows what he's talking about! The Watch5 Pro readings are innacurate. Apparently the £29.99 Honor Band 6 has more accurate readings!

My watch was accurate. I had readings in the 70's as well for who knows who many years. I had only had the watch for about a month. I developed arythmia in my life and ended up have cardiac ablation twice to have my heart rythm corrected. Sleep apnea could have been the underlying cause.  I use CPAP machine now and since using that device my watch gives readings of 88-97% during sleep. Yes, you should do a sleep study.

Same problem for me. I changed phones and the new phone doesn't give me the durations of being below 90 percent in Samsung health. Just a minimum. Pretty frustrating.

The data is there because I can see it in the old phone that is still active.

My Galaxy pro watch is recording blood oxygen levels as low as 76 for 19 minutes. I checked recordings from ist Jan up to today. 89 is the highest during that period. I am diagnosed with AF.
