Fitbit’s smartphone app now has the option to log glucose readings. This allows for a more comprehensive approach to health monitoring.
The significance of glucose testing
People with diabetes, for example, need to keep track of their blood sugar levels. This is due to their bodies’ inability to control blood sugar levels. Non-diabetics, too, are increasingly monitoring their glucose levels in order to improve their nutrition or increase their workout energy levels.
A few weeks ago, we wrote about how revolutionary technology is on its way to us. Using the optical sensor on the wrist, scientists have reportedly figured out how to track glucose non-invasively.
According to ETNews, both Apple and Samsung are reportedly working on such a smartphone. Who knows, it could end up in the Apple Watch Series 7 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. The question isn’t whether or not we’ll see the technology, but rather when.
With a Fitbit, you can track your glucose levels.
Fitbit is now joining in the fun. In the above-mentioned article, the corporation was not featured with Apple and Samsung. However, you can bet that figuring out how to detect glucose from the wrist is a difficult task.
Meanwhile, we’ll have to make do with the next best thing. Fitbit’s smartphone app now has the option to log glucose readings.
This isn’t just for keeping track of your blood sugar levels. Keeping track of that information, as well as your weight, sleep, and food intake, might help you figure out what’s affecting your blood sugar levels.
Fitbit’s smartphone app now includes glucose tracking.
As previously said, you will need to manually enter the measurements as well as any associated symptoms. Unless you’re the proud owner of LifeScan’s OneTouch Reveal app. In that situation, your measurements will be automatically transferred to the Fitbit app. Compatibility with other meters and apps, according to the business, will be available soon.
You can also define your own specific glucose range using the Fitbit app. In the accompanying chart, this will be displayed alongside your readings. You may also set up alarms to remind you to log your blood glucose readings throughout the day, which is really beneficial.
