Be patient, the Apple Watch’s non-invasive glucose reader can take years to arrive

Salvarte la vida hará que el Apple Watch sea imprescindible para millones de personas

It was talked about this past spring: Apple has been working hard to find a way to read the glucose of the users of an Apple Watch in a non-invasive way . For people with diabetes this would be a before and after, and would boost sales of the watch even more.

However, a recent article in the New York Times asks us to be patient: the company is still working on that miracle sensor but it seems that it will take years to see it work . Two anonymous sources related to the project have commented on it.

The source even mentions Steve Jobs , since he was one of their main targets. The co-founder of Apple didn’t like at all having to prick his finger and draw a drop of blood every time he wanted to read his glucose levels. If it were up to him, the sensor would have been included in the original model of the Apple Watch launched in 2015.

At the moment, however, we cannot deny that the Apple Watch has made no progress. watchOS 4 includes us in the Heart Study, with the intention of being able to collect anonymous data much more efficiently in order to make progress in the fight against heart disease.
