According to a report from a few months ago, it was suggested that one of the features to look forward to in the next generation Apple Watch is blood sugar / glucose monitoring. This has been something we’ve heard about for years, but the previous review suggested it might finally be ready.
Now it looks like these rumors are gaining traction thanks to reports from The Telegraph (Paywall) and Forbes. Both have reported that British healthcare company Rockley Photonics has confirmed in an SEC filing that Apple has been the company’s largest customer for the past two years. Why is that a big deal you ask?
This is because Rockley is focused on developing sensors that can detect glucose levels, blood pressure, and even alcohol levels. There really wouldn’t be any reason Apple would partner with them other than for the Apple Watch, which has led to speculation that features like blood glucose monitoring and blood pressure monitoring might be coming to the Apple Watch.
If it’s true, it will undoubtedly be a big deal, although nothing is guaranteed yet, but with Apple trying to make the Apple Watch a one-stop shop for all of your medical and health needs, it seems more of a matter of when to be functions will arrive, not when.
