Does anyone have experience with using muscle oxygen

I have been seeing this Humon Hex device for measuring muscle oxygenation as a way to evaluate lactate levels and lactate threshold. has anyone seen information or have experience? I tend to like data, data more data. what i read tells me that this might be better than FTP for training, as the work you can do will change from day to day, by conditions, etc. comments, thoughts?

I like the idea of logging muscle oxygen, but I'd pass on the Hex and get Moxy. Moxy is far more expensive, but it's a research-quality device. I'm a member of Humon's facebook group and lots of users aren't happy with their Hex and put me off to buying one. I think a lot of people expected Hex to be some magical device that will give you more insight into your training, but their platform is a big miss. You need to be able to interpret the data yourself, and that's almost impossible for most people for a variety of reasons.

It's a neat device, but I think it'll share the same fate as BSX Insight.
