In addition to Samsung, rumors indicate that Apple is also eyeing the feature that allows you to monitor the blood glucose level. Apparently, the Cupertino giant does not want to let the South Korean manufacturer take the lead.
Therefore, the company has tested the novelty in its future Apple Watch 7. The intention is to use the same principle of technology explored by Samsung: Raman spectroscopy.
Considered one of the least invasive methods, Raman spectroscopy is also explored by Samsung and other companies. The feature uses only a laser light to measure the chemical composition of the blood and allows to measure diabetes in seconds.
For now, it is not yet clear who will launch the first smart watch with the novelty. Even so, the tendency is that the new technology catches the public’s attention, since the process of measuring diabetes with blood samples is a daily drama in many people’s lives.
