The Diabetes Wristwatch Is Here!

The Apple Watch will soon offer people with diabetes a convenient way to monitor their glucose levels! Dexcom sensors will enable users to transmit their readings directly to the Watch. Sensors, embedded beneath the skin, will check the wearer’s blood sugar levels every five minutes and feed the results to a receiver that will send the information to the device. From the app, the user can both monitor their readings and share the results; making it extremely convenient for physicians and caregivers to monitor patients and children.

The next goal for Dexcom developers: eliminate the receiver from the equation, allowing information to be transmitted directly from the transmitter to the Apple Watch, eliminating a piece of the bulky gear required in continuous glucose monitoring.
