Apple's latest move seems to confirm glucose monitoring on Apple Watch

Apple Watch Steel

We have been rumors for a long time about the new functionality that the next Apple Watch could incorporate. We are talking about the glucose monitor. With the preceding information it seemed clear that the rumors were serious. Not only the activities of third companies, if not Apple's own maneuvers. In fact the last action you have taken seems to confirm that we will have that new meter on the watch.

We have talked many times about the Apple Watch's ability to serve as a private practitioner. Except that it is not capable of healing, it does many things that are beneficial to our health. It prevents us from heart problems, helps us in the event of a fall, we maintain good hand hygiene ... etc. The next thing Apple wants is to help us control our glucose levels and it seems to be very serious.

Not only because of the news that they have already come to the fore about this new technology, if not because we have to take into account that now Apple has launched a survey among users Apple Watch and asked them if they use any app to track their eating habits, medications, and blood glucose levels.

A screenshot of the survey was shared with 9to5Mac by a Brazilian reader, who received it in his email. The survey has a section dedicated to health characteristics, which have become a major selling point of the Apple Watch since its introduction.

Apple survey on the possibility of adding glucose meter to the watch

Following these questions, Apple also asks questions about third-party applications to manage health data. The survey offers options on the use of third-party applications for tracking workouts, tracking eating habits (including hydration and nutrition), and managing other health care (such as medications and monitoring levels of energy). Blood glucose).

We know that these surveys have served the company on previous occasions for decision making. For example in the removal of the charger in the new iPhone 12 and other devices. So we can say that this is a very good source and that it is more than likely that we do have that glucose meter on the Apple Watch 7. What we do not know is if it will be a software or hardware update. Hopefully it is the first and so the rest of us can also benefit from it.
