New Diabetes Smart Watches At Ces 2017

We're sorry, an error occurred. We are unable to collect your feedback at this time. However, your feedback is important to us. Please try again later. Hey Diabetes Peeps, did you know that the term "complications" isn't always negative? Yep, it's a little known fact that in horology (the art of measuring time), a complication refers to any feature in a timepiece that goes beyond just simply displaying hours and minutes. That means day/date displays, alarms, stopwatch functions, etc. So finally, there are some diabetes-related complications we can all get behind! That is, lots of excitement this week about new glucose-tracking smartwatch features (err, complications) -- including a Dexcom-Apple Watch update and a new "Glucowatch 2.0" type device on display at the big annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that just wrapped up in Las Vegas. Earlier this week, Dexcom announced a new "complication" to its Apple Watch compatibility. Instead of having to touch an icon to open a separate screen to see your glucose data, it's now it's displayed right on the main watchface! There are four different ways to view your glucose data there, ranging from 1 to 6 hour trend graphs: Dexcom first announced Apple Watch compatibility in April 2015 with the Dexcom Follow app and watchface, and it later expanded that for all personal G5 CGM use on March 14, 2016. Now, this capability to see BG levels without pressing any buttons is a big change that many CGM users have been asking for quite a while. Currently, the new capability is only for the G5 Mobile app and Apple Watch, as the company hasn't yet updated the Follow app that lets users share their results in real-time with family members or others. Word is also that this new feature doesn't work with every single watchface, so if you hav Continue reading >>

Helo Lx: The Story Of Multi-level Marketing And One Overpriced Health Band

Helo Lx: The Story Of Multi-level Marketing And One Overpriced Health Band

Helo LX: The story of Multi-Level Marketing and one overpriced health band Multi-level Marketing is a nasty, nasty thing, and it's just gone wearable. MLMs are a barely legal business practice where your customers become your salespeople your distributors in exchange for the promise of commissions for the sales that they make and the chance to earn the big bucks if they can convince some of their own clients to become salespeople too. The greater the number of people you have below you in the structure, the more money you can rake in. The trick, of course, is that the numbers don't work and, in the end, it's only a few people right at the top of the chain who make anything out of it at all. It's what they used to call a pyramid scheme except now, because there's an actual product involved, companies like Wor(l)d Global Network are getting away with ripping people off again. And they're doing it with devices like the Helo LX health band the most overpriced tracker you'll ever see. Helo is short for Health and Lifestyle Oracle, while LX is supposed to stand for luxury and, in a slightly odd twist of circumstances, we were contacted by one of Wor(l)d Global Network's many young, money-hungry distributors who had the misguided idea of convincing us to become Helo sales agents ourselves. All we had to do to get in on the gold rush was to purchase a Helo LX at the cost of $319. Now direct from the online store , the Helo LX costs from $199 for the device but many people pay much more than that. It's around $349 for a bundle including bands and a germanium kit and $1,349 for a family pack of four trackers. At this point we should make it clear that we're not going to reveal the name of this distributor. People lose their jobs for becoming part of this kind of nonsense and we' Continue reading >>

Apple Has A Secret Team Working On The Holy Grail For Treating Diabetes

Apple Has A Secret Team Working On The Holy Grail For Treating Diabetes

Apple has hired a small team of biomedical engineers to work at a nondescript office in Palo Alto, California, miles from corporate headquarters. They are part of a super secret initiative, initially envisioned by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, to develop sensors that can noninvasively and continuously monitor blood sugar levels to better treat diabetes, according to three people familiar with the matter. Such a breakthrough would be a "holy grail" for life sciences. Many life sciences companies have tried and failed, as it's highly challenging to track glucose levels accurately without piercing the skin. The initiative is far enough along that Apple has been conducting feasibility trials at clinical sites across the Bay Area and has hired consultants to help it figure out the regulatory pathways, the people said. The efforts have been going on for at least five years, the people said. Jobs envisioned wearable devices, like smartwatches, being used to monitor important vitals, such as oxygen levels, heart rate and blood glucose. In 2010, Apple quietly acquired a company called Cor, after then-CEO Bob Messerschmidt reportedly sent Jobs a cold email on the topic of sensor technologies for health and wellness. Messerschmidt later joined the Apple Watch team. The glucose team is said to report to Johny Srouji, Apple's senior vice president of hardware technologies. According to one of the sources, it was previously led by Michael D. Hillman, who left Apple in late 2015 and later joined Facebook's Oculus as head of hardware. Hillman's LinkedIn page lists him as having had a "confidential role" in hardware technologies at Apple. One person said about 30 people were working in this group as of a year ago. But speculation has been flying around since the company snapped Continue reading >>

Join the community Hi guys does anyone have any information on the watch that is coming out soon by helo it's for bs testing? A quick google brought me here: There's no mention of BG monitoring, but there is lots of other stuff, including a bit of questionable science. What it also doesn't tell you is that the device stores your data remotely, and to access it, you apparently need to pay $20 / month, which seems... well, for $120 / year (Plus the $320 market-entry price) you could buy much cheaper, better things. It's personal choice, ultimately, but even if I had the money to spend, I'd steer clear of this one.

Continuous Glucose Monitors: New Developments In Cgm Technology

Continuous Glucose Monitors: New Developments In Cgm Technology

Continuous Glucose Monitors: New Developments in CGM Technology Checking your blood glucose can be a tiresome (but necessary) part of living with diabetes. Testing your blood glucose using a glucometer gives you snapshots of your blood glucose profile at isolated times during the day. Continuous glucose monitors, on the other hand, allow you to see what your blood glucose is doing throughout the day, by taking measurements approximately every 5 minutes. In the next few years, everyone will be able to use continuous glucose monitors to track their blood glucose. Athletes, professionals, coaches, people living with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, coaches and medical professionals will soon have CGM technology at their fingertips. I wrote an article about this for KQED a few years ago, so read it to gain more appreciation for the importance of CGM technology for non-diabetic individuals. This is great news, because tracking your blood glucose is a powerful way to gain insight into how your food, exercise and stress affect you in ways that were previously invisible. There are a number of companies currently developing technology to continuously measure blood glucose non-invasively. Some of the best known companies are summarized below: Verily (Google's life science team) and Dexcom have teamed up to develop a miniature continuous glucose monitor (CGM) to help people with type 2 diabetes measure blood glucose continuously. Dexcom manufactures CGMs for people with type 1 diabetes, however they are generally not available to patients with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. This partnership is focused on minimizing both the cost and the size of the components. And it goes without saying that these sensors would be fully cloud-compatible , for all tech nerds to enjoy.

Tech Thursday - Beware Of Helo: A Sketchy Health Monitoring Bracelet

Tech Thursday - Beware Of Helo: A Sketchy Health Monitoring Bracelet

Tech Thursday - Beware of HELO: A sketchy health monitoring bracelet Welcome to Tech Thursday, the column with the purpose of discovering new high-tech products and developing technology created to help make everyone's lives convenient, cool, or all of the above! While a lot of new tech out there can be exciting and useful, unfortunately not all of them are authentic. One such pipe dream is a fitness bracelet that not only monitors your heart rate, but can monitor your blood pressure, your breathing rate, tell your mood, fatigue levels, and even comes with a GPS panic button if you're in trouble or sends a warning to your smartphone if the wearer's health levels are in danger. The bracelet I'm talking about is the Health and Lifestyle Oracle, or HELO for short. What does it do?: Monitors your heart rate, blood pressure, fatigue levels, breathing rate, etc. How do you use it?: Wear on your wrist then connect via Bluetooth to your smartphone with the app. How is it convenient?: Claims to monitor your life or another's easier. The creators of HELO claim that their bracelet can perform multiple health monitoring features mentioned above with advanced technology such as electro-cardiogram monitoring, Photoplethysmographic (fancy word for biosensor) monitoring, and negative ion emitting minerals. The negative ion minerals are HELO stones worn within the bracelet's strap made of pink Himalayan salt and Germanium, supposedly to counteract positive ions that devices like phones, radios and computers emit that cause headaches and poor moods. Another feature is a GPS tracker that the wearer can activate when they're in danger and advertise that the device is perfect for the elderly or your child to wear. The device can also send text and call alerts to those with the app should t Continue reading >>

Apple’s Needleless Blood Sugar Tracker Has An Uphill Battle In Front Of It

Apple’s Needleless Blood Sugar Tracker Has An Uphill Battle In Front Of It

Rumors are flying that Apple is developing some kind of wearable that would continuously track the user’s blood sugar without breaking their skin. For people with diabetes, this would be a huge improvement over the somewhat invasive or downright painful options they currently rely on. But experts warn that if the rumors are true, Apple will be facing a scientific and technological battlefield littered with decades of other companies’ failures. If Apple is chasing a needleless blood sugar monitor, it wouldn’t be that surprising. (Apple declined to comment.) After all, the market would be massive. About 30 million Americans have diabetes, a disease caused when there’s too much sugar, or glucose, in the blood. People with diabetes have to carefully titrate their food intake, or even inject the hormone insulin in order to keep their blood sugar from spiking or dropping to dangerous levels. So regularly measuring blood glucose is key. Right now, it’s also unpleasant. People with diabetes have to prick their fingers to draw blood, or wear a monitor that inserts a tiny tube beneath their skin to continuously measure glucose in the fluid between cells (the same fluid that spills out when you pop a blister). So a needleless device — preferably one that continuously monitors glucose levels and spits them out in real time — would be a huge upgrade. “That is the holy grail,” says Eric Topol, the director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute who also sits on the board of glucose monitor manufacturer Dexcom. And that’s why so many before Apple have made the attempt. Google tried to develop a contact lens to detect glucose in tears, but ever since pharmaceutical giant Novartis licensed the technology in 2014, the project’s gone quiet. (A spokesperson fo Continue reading >>

Launch Of Worlds First Wearable, Non-invasive, Continuous, Blood Glucose Estimation Technology

Launch Of Worlds First Wearable, Non-invasive, Continuous, Blood Glucose Estimation Technology

Launch Of World's First Wearable, Non-Invasive, Continuous, Blood Glucose Estimation Technology Using WRMT's Smart Wristband, Helo, Will Generate Recurring Revenues For WRMT MIAMI, Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --World Media & Technology Corp. ("Wor(l)d") ( www.worldmediatech.com ) (OTC PINK: WRMT), today announced that its research activity generating non-invasive, continuous blood glucose estimates has been found to be sufficiently accurate to allow WRMT to proceed to full integration of the algorithm in the Helo platform so WRMT can offer blood glucose estimation as a service in Q4'17 to Helo wearers who choose to pay an initial set-up fee and an ongoing monthly charge. According to the International Diabetes Federation, 415 million people worldwide (1 in 11 people) have diabetes consuming 12% of global health expenditure ($673B) in 2015. The American Diabetes Association advises that in the US, nearly 30 million (1 in 8) people have diabetes and $1 in $5 health care dollars is spent caring for people with diabetes. Americans with diagnosed diabetes incur average medical expenditures of about $13,700 per year, of which about $7,900 is attributed to diabetes. The importance of blood glucose (blood sugar) monitoring is the main tool used to check diabetes control. The current mainstream blood glucose measurement process is to use a lancing device on the side of the fingertip to get a drop of blood, touch the test strip to the drop of blood, and wait for the result. Apart from being painful for the diabetic, there are health risks due to the invasive nature of the process as well as measurement compliance and recording issues. Helo's features today include measurement of Blood Pressure, ECG, Heart Rate, Respiration Rate, Heart Rate Variability (HRV) analysis for mood and Continue reading >>
