The report comes from Chinese publication ETNews that says that blood glucose levels will be measured by a tech called Raman spectroscopy. The technology can — using a laser light — determine composition of a substance, lie glucose levels in a person’s blood. The use of this technology isn’t restricted just to measure blood glucose levels.
A research paper published in the international journal Science Advances details how the technology will work.
It has been reported in the past that Apple may have been working on a non-invasive glucometer for its Watch. The Watch is a critical product for Apple and one that CEO Tim Cook believes could define Apple’s legacy. Cook had once said that Apple’s “greatest contribution to mankind” would be in health.
Having said that, pulling off a glucometer in a smartwatch could be a tricky job. There is no room for error as a false reading by small margin could also be really dangerous for the user.
The Apple Watch over the years has been introducing one big feature every year. Blood glucose level monitoring is a feature that is high on anticipation as the number of people suffering from diabetes across the world have been increasing only.
