Samsung's next smartwatch could bring diabetes monitoring to your wrist

Samsung might follow the Galaxy Watch 3 with not one or two, but three new smartwatch models that are reportedly in the works.

The "Apple Watch Series 7" may include the long-rumored glucose monitoring feature, a report about Samsung's rival wearable device suggests, despite the difficulty of taking blood sugar measurements without drawing blood.

Now, for those of you who don't know, blood glucose levels are usually measured by using a single drop of blood in a blood sugar meter. The use of this technology isn't restricted just to measure blood glucose levels. The ability to observe any major increases or decreases in blood glucose may raise awareness of a potential health condition or simply help to improve a user's diet. Referencing existing reporting on the function, as well as Apple's patent filings, the feature is said to be undergoing testing for "reliability and stability" before it is commercialized. The industry believes that the optical sensor from Apple can achieve continuous monitoring without the need for an implant. This tea has been available since 2017 and they will specialize in non-implantable blood glucose monitoring sensors. The feature, as per the report, could come in Samsung Galaxy smartwatches as well.

The Apple Watch has become quite a health monitoring and fitness device.

Google threatens to disable search in Australia if media law passes
The knock-on effect could be other countries becoming emboldened to follow the Australian government in passing new, similar laws. No one pays to include a hyperlink in an email, and so websites and search engines do not pay to provide links to other websites.

Generally speaking, the Galaxy Watch and Watch Active series are almost identical except the latter has a physical rotating bezel whereas the former adopts a touchscreen-based / virtual bezel.

If the smartwatch uses a blood sugar-free instantaneous technology, diabetic patients can get away from the discomfort of sticking their fingertips with a banol as many as 10 times a day.

It was exactly one year ago when Samsung Electronics together with the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have revealed a non-invasive method of monitoring glucose levels that utilizes Raman spectroscopy. That is, the glucometer inside the smartwatches will apparently be based on an optical sensor.
