Apple has always stated that its smartwatch has as one of its main objectives to help people in monitoring their health problems. A new rumor now indicates that the Apple Watch Series 7 will include a way to control blood glucose levels, something that can be especially useful for people with diabetes.
The Chinese website ETNews says that the Cupertino brand is working on the inclusion in its next Apple Watch of a non-invasive sensor capable of helping diabetes patients to monitor their health more closely.
Apple Watch Series 7 will help fight diabetes
Measuring blood sugar levels is vitally important for these patients, allowing them to understand whether they should condition their glucose intake or whether they need, for example, an insulin injection.
Normally for this type of monitoring it is necessary to prick a finger to analyze a drop of blood in a device suitable for this purpose. Alternatively, it is also possible to use a permanent glucose meter.
Apple now proposes to offer a painless and easy-to-use method for making exactly this type of measurement.
The brand will have already secured the necessary patents, being focused on ensuring the reliability and stability of the measurements before commercializing the technology.
Samsung may include the same type of technology in the next Galaxy Watch
Apple’s intention to add a blood glucose measurement sensor to the Apple Watch has been going on for some time now, and it looks like 2021 will be the year when that will be possible. The great advantage of this type of meter will be the possibility of collecting data through the skin.
Who is also ready to include this type of technology in their smartwatches is Samsung. The next Galaxy Watch should offer monitoring of blood glucose levels, bringing this technique to more people.
This possibility reflects well the impact of diabetes worldwide. In UK it is one of the diseases that kills the most, and an Apple Watch with this type of sensor can be an important weapon in its fight.
The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to be introduced later this year, alongside the new iPhones for 2021 that are usually announced in September.
Confirming this rumor will be another important step for Apple towards a smartwatch increasingly capable of helping to increase our quality of life.
