The Aithre Connect is used to pair with Aithre devices to monitor air, health, and oxygen by pilots in aviation. The Aithre Connect app includes a WatchOS companion app.

PULSE OXIMETRY. The Aithre Illyrian is a wireless enabled smart pulse oximeter with red/infrared dual channels that can be worn on the center forehead or under the earlobe for continuous readings even with movement and activity. Using a flat, low profile sensor pad and simple USB power, the Illyrian oximeter broadcasts pulse rate and blood oxygen data to your iOS and companion WatchOS. The data is presented in real-time and in a trend graph including up to 12 hours of data - along with pressure altitude information. Notification is provided for drops in oxygen percentage. The pulse oximetry can also be displayed on glass panel avionics, including G3X and Dynon when used with the Aithre Shield EX3.

SMART OXYGEN VALVE CONTROL. The Aithre Avi8 smart pulse system is controllable with a push button and also using the in-app user specified settings. The pilot can preselect pressure altitude, carbon monoxide levels, or pulse oximetry levels and the oxygen flow will start and stop automatically based on these settings. The Avi8 further includes smart pulse technology to enable oxygen conservation during flight by timing the delivery of oxygen to inhalation and adjusting for SPO2 for safety.

PORTABLE OXYGEN TANK MONITORING. The Aithre Altus is a wireless enabled portable O2 tank monitor that puts oxygen tank pressure readings on your iOS and WatchOS device. Notifications are provided for pressure levels. The portable tank PSI can also be displayed on glass panel avionics, including G3X and Dynon when used with the Aithre Shield EX3.

CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR. The Aithre Shield is a wireless enabled carbon monoxide detector that is highly sensitive and portable. CO levels and trend data is transmitted wirelessly in real-time to your iOS and your WatchOS device. Notifications for crossing CO thresholds are provided. The carbon. monoxide data can also be displayed on glass panel avionics, including G3X and Dynon when used with the Aithre Shield EX3.

G-FORCEs. The Aithre Connect app further monitors acceleration in any direction and plots the max acceleration/g-force every 12 seconds. This historical acceleration data is useful in determining the comfort of your passengers during flight or for monitoring g forces during aerobatic flight.

TRIP HISTORY. When used with the Illyrian and/or Shield devices, the trip history feature keeps health and CO data for each trip. These trips are accessible within the app and as external CSV files (spreadsheet files).

AITHRE BEACONS. View near-real-time conditions for precision 3D coordinates in space as reported and provided by aircraft. The turbulence is shared automatically via the included in-app turbulence monitor. Aircraft with the installed Aithre Metis weather system also contribute near-real-time temperature, humidity, and dew point levels from actual flight recordings. All data is anonymous and private and there is no login ever required.

AITHRE ASSISTANT. This assistant enables quick speech based lookup of frequencies for airports, airport information, and runway information. Quick airport frequency lookups and ATIS can be asked for and provided via text and audible speech, via a paired aviation headset. A nearest function automatically provides you with quick access to nearest airports, runways, and frequencies during flight. The assistant automatically provides updated weather reports for your destination and based on nearby pilot reports.

CHECKLISTS. Create custom checklists for quick access. Quickly check off items to support pilot decision making.

Does work....

Disappointed to find that it does not rotate? Frequently pilots use their iPads in landscape mode or upside down. I contacted the developer. They listened. It now rotates. Changed my rating. Does not allow to change degrees from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Version 7.8 now allows landscape or portrait mode for iPad and also split screen and multitasking.

UI needs some love

I really like the idea behind this app and I’m happy to support it. It was relatively easy to start and the oximeter paired with the app automatically, neat! I’m using the headband and the data looks accurate.

However some things could improve:

1. The UI is extremely confusing and non-standard. It uses gray text on black backgrounds (hard to read), it uses nonstandard UI elements across the whole application, and it is not clear what is a button and what’s not.
2. Sampling quality is pegged at 120 for me - I’m not sure what this means.

Again I really like the idea of this app, but it could use some polish!

Developer Response ,

We have updated the homepage based on your comments and will continue to carry through changes throughout the app. A 120 for your sampling quality is very good and indicates your placement of the oximeter is ideal. You may learn more about the oximeter operation on our Youtube channel as we have a dedicated video on its operation. We are pilot owned and operated in Idaho and have a lot to work on between our technology, network, avionics, and oxygen, so we do our best to update the app as much as possible. Thanks for your feedback

Update: Lightning in a Bottle

Through various updates and Aithre’s demonstrated commitment to safety and their product line, they have now achieved a wicked risk-mitigation solution to the carbon monoxide threat in the everyday general aviation pilot world. Aithre didn’t just talk about future improvements, they did something about it in quick fashion.

When it comes to CO awareness I trust my life and my family’s lives to Aithre.

Chris, thanks for your feedback. We released a new update today pending review by Apple.

Added ad­di­tion­al Siri and pop­up no­ti­fi­ca­tions to now in­clude: con­nec­tion sta­tus, dis­con­nec­tion sta­tus, car­bon monox­ide warn­ings above 2, 10, and 50 ppm, oxy­gen tank de­ple­tion be­low 500 psi, pres­sure al­ti­tude greater than 12500 ft and 15,000 feet. Also added a user set­ting for a cus­tom car­bon monox­ide thresh­old warn­ing, which is pro­vid­ed via Siri and pop­up notif­ication. Ad­di­tion­al­ly added a user set­ting for a cus­tom pres­sure al­ti­tude warn­ing thresh­old, which is pro­vid­ed via Siri and pop­up notif­ication. These ad­di­tion­al user set­tings and Siri no­ti­fi­ca­tions en­able en­hanced safe­ty in flight and can be pro­vid­ed via the avi­a­tion head­set when the head­set is paired to the iOS de­vice run­ning this ap­pli­ca­tion.

Also added ad­di­tion­al sup­port for pres­sure al­ti­tude de­ter­mi­na­tions, FAA oxy­gen re­quire­ments that are au­to­mat­i­cal­ly de­ter­mined based on pres­sure al­ti­tude, flow rate, tank time re­main­ing, and ad­di­tion­al func­tions with re­spect to Aithre Al­tus por­table oxy­gen tank man­age­ment.
