Huawei Watch 4 has started measuring glucose in China with a new update. Smart watches of users who meet certain conditions will be able to regularly measure sugar values.
Smart watches have started to measure many vital values such as heart rate, EKG, sleep, stress and blood pressure. Diabetes, another vital value that people are eagerly waiting for, is slowly on the way to easy measurement.
Huawei Watch 4 surprise
In fact, although the claims that the Apple Watch will measure glucose have been on the agenda for a long time, Huawei has taken the stage before. Huawei Watch 4 series can measure blood sugar with a new update.
Huawei has worked for 100 thousand hours on 800 thousand metrics with different medical institutions for its new method. The watch can reach accurate results within 60 seconds by processing 10 different data collected from the sensors. Although an important step has been made, it will be possible to use it within the borders of China for now.
Certain conditions must be met for blood glucose measurement. First of all, the watch does not measure on demand. It constantly checks and advises the user at certain time intervals. On the other hand, it is absolutely necessary to participate in a health research program and to be over the age of 18. Finally, Type 1 diabetes cannot be measured. The Huawei Watch 4 series can also measure details such as EKG, heart rate, and oxygen in the blood.
