Recently, Tim Cook has been spotted wearing what seemed to be a real glucose tracker that easily integrates with the Apple Watch, reports CNBC. This follows reports of Apple’s so-called hiring a team of bioengineers who had the intention to start work on the development of a device which helps people to control their blood sugar.
“It is mentally agonizing sting several times a day to check your blood sugar,” Cook said, according to CNBC. “There is a lot of hope there that if someone has constant knowledge of what they eat, they will instantly know what are the causes of the response… and that they may settle well before becoming diabetic.”
This is particularly important when we know that more than 29 million Americans suffer from diabetes. Currently, they can test themselves using a needle.
Tim Cook has talked about the possibility to monitor both the levels of sugar in the blood and other vital signs. The test was said to be Apple’s most difficult obstacles, far away, at least according to the biomedical engineer John Smith. Fortunately, they can succeed in what they set out to achieve.
