Blood Glucose Smart Watch

It's in full development world wide, there are multiple options including even a temporary tattoo or sticker that can measure this way.

Anyway, there are like 400 million people with diabetes so a matter of time. The issue seems to be they want the same accuracy as currently is gotten using blood samples. Give it a few more years and it starts to pop-up for sure:

Like today, feel odd/bad + bad eyes +  the shakes,  BP OK bit low, but BS very low......  = wasted 5 strips trying to find the blood


would be so much easier to look at a automatic monitor. [or with voice]...  did ask a Dr a couple of years ago = Dexcom G6 Sensor  was very expensive + expensive ongoing supplies.
