"According to our source, Apple's sights are now set on the epidemic of diabetes, and the company plans to introduce a game-changing glucose monitoring feature in an upcoming Apple Watch", BGR wrote in its report. The report claims that the team is "part of a super secret initiative, initially envisioned by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, to develop sensors that can non invasively and continuously monitor blood sugar levels to better treat diabetes". Sadly there are no photos but the source reportedly said that the glucose monitor was physically attached to Cook's Apple Watch in some way. "I just took it off before coming on this trip", Cook told a group of students at the University of Glasgow in February. The current glucose trackers on the market rely on tiny sensors and rumours suggests that the company is already conducting feasibility trials in the Bay Area. "It's mentally anguishing to stick yourself many times a day to check your blood sugar", he added. "There is lots of hope out there that if someone has constant knowledge of what they're eating, they can instantly know what causes the response. and that they can adjust well before they become diabetic". Speaking to CNBC last month, biomedical expert John L. Smith said developing such a device has been "the most hard technical challenge I have encountered in my career".
