Apple Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch 4: an answer for diabetics?

For its Apple Watch Series 6 unveiled last September, Apple introduced a new sensor capable of measuring the level of oxygen in the blood. In the next version, the connected watch would be able to measure the glucose level this time. This would also be the case with the Galaxy Watch 4.

In other words, these next watches could determine the amount of sugar in the blood. According to WccfTech, which reports the information, at Apple the process would be based on an optical sensor capable of analyzing the user's blood. No information is available on Samsung's technology.

This novelty would in particular make it possible to assist people with diabetes. An increase or decrease in this rate could then mean a change in medical condition to be monitored.





Non-medical features

Note that the various features activated by a whole slew of sensors are not certified medical instruments. Apple specifies it on its official website:


'The measurements provided by the Blood Oxygen app are not intended for medical use, including for self-diagnosis or in the context of a consultation with a doctor, and are intended only for fitness and general welfare ”.

For its part, Samsung also mentions that its Galaxy Watch3 is 'Designed for wellness and fitness management purposes only.'

The fact remains that these are indicators that can be confirmed, if necessary, during a medical appointment.

Air analysis soon

We reported last September that Apple had obtained a patent for new types of sensors capable of analyzing ambient air quality.

The document describes an apparatus having infrared lasers capable of reflecting light signals on the lenses to identify the concentration of particles.

Such a device would make it possible in particular to identify odorless gas.
