Apple Watch Series 7 may support blood glucose monitoring


The rumor: A potentially ground breaking feature will debut on Apple Watch Series 7, according to ETNews (55.5% accurate).

  • Apple Watch Series 7 may be able to measure blood glucose levels (potentially by using an optical sensor)
  • Non-invasive glucose monitoring, which involves reading blood sugar without pricking a finger or drawing blood, was thought to be years away and would are a game changer for individuals with diabetes

Our take: Considering ETNews’ track record, I doubt this is coming this year. Next year, maybe. But I don’t think that’s ready to debut in 2021 yet, considering that many still consider non-invasive glucose monitoring to be years away.
