To avoid hypoglycaemia or hypoglycaemia, diabetics have to check their blood sugar levels several times a day. As ETNews reports, this task could be taken over by future smartwatch models. Both Samsung and Apple are currently working on devices that can measure the sugar content. The se are the Apple Watch 7, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Watch Active3.
Devices work with optical sensors
The responsible developers from the two companies are working with scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in order to achieve a high level of reliability with the method.
It remains to be seen whether the feature will turn out to be practical. Anyone interested in the new series of wearables from Samsung and Apple will have to wait a few more months. It is likely that Samsung will present the devices as part of an unpacked event in the second half of the year.
The new Apple Watch 7 could be launched in September and therefore in the same period.
