Apple wants to make its smartwatch more than an average smart wearable available in the market. And to do so, the company’s CEO himself is testing a new device that will expand Apple’s watch functionality into health domain.

Tim Cook has reportedly been spotted wearing a prototype glucose tracker that’s connected to Apple watch. The device also adds substance to previous rumors about Apple hiring a team of biomedical engineers to work on a noninvasive device that can monitor blood sugar levels of diabetic patients.

According to CNBC, in an interaction with University of Glasgow students in February, Cook revealed that he has been using a glucose tracker, which has helped him analyse the effects of different foods on his blood sugar levels.

An easy, hassle-free device

Cook is an active health enthusiast himself being a regular at the gym. “It’s mentally anguishing to stick yourself many times a day to check your blood sugar,” Cook said, according to CNBC. “There is lots of hope out there that if someone has constant knowledge of what they’re eating, they can instantly know what causes the response… and that they can adjust well before they become diabetic.”

An easy, non-invasive device is a big technical challenge even for health experts and it would be revolutionary if Apple is able to bring something like this to the market.

Apparently, it was Steve Jobs who thought of creating wearables that can monitor blood sugar and other vital signs and who knows Time Cook could be the one who brings Jobs idea to reality during his tenure.

Wishing Apple Good Luck for its efforts.
