It would be a major breakthrough for people with a range of blood glucose problems, who would get a consistently accurate picture if the technology is developed.

Blood sugar measurement, the final frontier. At least that seems to be the idea that major technology manufacturers have about non-invasive sensors capable of measuring blood glucose, a measurement that has been elusive and is proving to be a significant challenge for companies like Apple and Samsung.
It’s certainly not a new concept, but there is a strong desire to integrate this capability into their health devices, such as the latest Galaxy Ring announced a week ago in San Jose.
With each advancement, wearing a Galaxy Watch on your wrist is like having your own personal healthcare assistant with you 24/7
In a recent interview with Bloomberg, the executive from the three-star company, Hon Park, outlined the vision that Koreans have regarding health metrics and vital signs measurement. The goal is clear: to achieve precise, non-invasive measurements that can be taken from the comfort of the consumer’s home to alert about any abnormal data in time for analysis by the corresponding specialist.
So far, most smartwatches can provide metrics such as heart rate, blood oxygen, sleep quality measurement, and some, such as Galaxy Watches from the fourth version onwards, can perform ECGs or measure body mass. The objective is to integrate glucose measurement without breaking the user’s skin, a challenge that keeps Apple and Samsung in a relentless race to be the first to succeed.
This development will benefit a large number of users with diabetes or glucose management issues who could monitor their levels at all times, thereby being able to take immediate action if necessary.
