Continuous Non-Invasive Glucose Monitors

Advertisement

The Glucowatch is now discontinued. It provided a method to monitor blood sugar levels via a technology that sampled enzymes from the surface of your skin every 10 minutes.

New technologies are appearing including Sentek's ocular insert device (yikes), Cybiocare's optical hypoglycemia detector (yikes), and AIMedics HypoMon (which thankfully doesn't go in your eye.)

None of these technologies are similar to the Glucowatch as far as I can tell. But the progress in this area leads me to believe that we will have a continuous blood glucose monitor that is non-invasive and bluetooth connected to your iPhone or GooglePhone within a few years. Such a device would be useful to more than just diabetics, although there are enough of them to create a market.
