What Is A Wrist-Watch Blood Glucose Meter?

This “wrist watch” version of Blood Glucose Meter, also known as GlucoWatch, is a new technology glucose testing product that will test your blood glucose through fluid drawn from under your skin with electrodes, rather than your blood itself. The process is painless.

How It Works?

A GlucoWatch depend on a skin pad that adhere to the skin, and measure your blood glucose using electric current. When your blood glucose goes too high or low, an alarm will sound off.

Key Features :

  • Readings can be generally taken up to 3 times an hour. Certain models of GlucoWatch can take as frequent as every 10 minutes.
  • Skin-pad can be worn as long as 13 hours yet need to be changed periodically.
  • Ideal for pregnant women who want to catch low blood glucose that occurs during the night.

Note(s) :

  • A new calibration is required whenever a new skin-pad is replaced which should be every 12 hours.

Update :

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the GlucoWatch as a prescription device for adults with diabetes on March 22, 2001. This is the only non-invasive glucose monitoring device currently approved by the FDA.

  4. My 26 year old daughter has type 1 diabetes and adrenal insufficiency which can also cause hypoglycaemic attacks, she has had night time hypos and slept through them which has resulted in her fitting and being left until someone finds her in the morning. A gluco watch sounds like a great idea if the alarm would wake her up…..or me in the next bedroom! Is this watch effective and where do I buy one from in the UK? Any useful comments welcome. Thanks

  5. You should go to: http://www.mendosa.com/glucowatch.htm
    I don’t know if the information is correct but it is the best site I’ve found so far. David Mendosa (the creator) mentions everything there is to know about the GlucoWatch. He writes about the starter cost($698), estimated annual cost(It’s expensive $5,753), how to obtain a GlucoWatch(Requires a prescription from a doctor), even the pros and cons. His site is amazing, very detailed and informative. I hope you find what your lucking for. Good luck!

  6. To any developers who might be reading these comments. When are you going to catch up with your accessability and make these products blind and visually impaired friendly. I have a talking meter but not easy to use when your blood sugar is low, I got annoyed a few times when i couldn’t work the machine and gave up, then a coma soon followed. I’d love one of these watches but have only one good kidney I could sell to be able to afford it
