Exclusive: Upcoming Apple Watch to include game-changing health features

While there are countless uses for this new category of device that places a smartphone on your wrist, one of the most popular is fitness monitoring and tracking, an intense area of focus for Apple. There is most likely not a single consumer fitness product in the world that has had more internal testing, validation and investment than the Apple Watch, and this doesn’t seem to be slowing. Our source indicates that Apple has hired 200 PhDs in the past year as part of the company’s laser lock on improving and innovating in the health space with Apple Watch.

It has been rumored that Apple is interested in glucose monitoring, and it appears that the time may now be right. Previous rumors have stated that Apple might only be able to achieve this through a separate device that might complement the watch, however BGR has learned that this might not be accurate.

According to our source, Apple’s sights are now set on the epidemic of diabetes, and the company plans to introduce a game-changing glucose monitoring feature in an upcoming Apple Watch. An estimated 30 million people suffer from diabetes in the US alone, according to the American Diabetes Association, so Apple’s efforts could lead to a historic achievement in the world of health and fitness.

Whatever happened to the laser glucose meter or something like that?

I used to see ads for it, but I don't see them any longer. My educators said something about something like it being discontinued, but I was pretty out of it then- being in the hospital and all. What is it and where did it go?

Thanks!


So far, ALL of the non-invasive glucose monitor have proven to be less than accurate. There is no getting around it -- the mots accurate way to test blood sugar is to take a drop of blood!

And frequency and accuracy of the blood sugar


I think you're referring to non-invasive, infrared glucose meters. It appears that they're still working on perfecting them: http://diabetes.about.com/b/2007/05/12/n on-invasive-blood-glucose-meter-promises -painless-testing.htm
