  • Tim Cook is testing a glucose tracker for the Apple Watch

Last month, CNBC reported that Apple has a 30-person team in Palo Alto quietly working on non-invasive and continuous glucose monitoring - something that would be welcomed by the millions of diabetes sufferers worldwide who now have to draw blood to get a glucose reading.

However, the Apple Watch seems like the most likely candidate at this stage.

Since last we reported about the said inititiative, the research team seems to have made enormous progress as feasibility trials for this sensor has already been flagged off.

Based on the wording of the latest report, we can nearly be certain the glucose tracker won't be baked directly into the Apple Watch whenever it materializes, and also safely assume it's not part of an interchangeable band setup either. "I just took it off before coming on this trip", Cook told a group of students at the University of Glasgow in February. It was reported in April that Apple has a team in Palo Alto, close to its Cupertino, California headquarters, working on the "holy grail" for diabetes, a device offering non-invasive and continuous glucose monitoring. "I've been wearing a continuous glucose monitor for a few weeks", he said.

We heard a rumor recently that the new Apple Watch will be able to monitor glucose levels, this could help people who have diabetes and also it could help identify people who have yet to be diagnosed.

"There is lots of hope out there that if someone has constant knowledge of what they are eating, they can instantly know what causes the response and that they can adjust well before they become diabetic", Cook said. It could also sell it exclusively to add to the revenue stream that'll be bolstered by the demand for the same.
