iWatch, Healthbook...Sounding more interesting.
« on: February 04, 2014, 03:34:48 PM »
I have to admit that the idea of a watch that relays basic info to a phone seemed at first uninteresting.  But some of the possibilities that are now being thrown around are pretty cool.

"Apple has now hired employees with expertise in pulse oximetry, vasculature visualization (vein finding), non-invasive glucose monitoring, blood chemistry monitoring , heart/breath rate monitoring, and fitness. Notably, several hires have also had experience with low-profile, non-invasive biosensor devices."

I'm watching all that closely, not just for geezer fitness but for Diane's diabetes. Could be a very big deal. If the medical approval processes weren't so tedious we'd already have an artificial pancreas. Of course it could probably be hacked, with dire results--so care is warranted.
