With the rapid development of technology, smart wearable devices have more and more complete functions in health monitoring. Major manufacturers continue to introduce new technologies into their smart wearable devices to further provide wearers with more comprehensive health monitoring.
A few days ago,
according to media Appleinsider, the British start-up company Rockley Photonics is preparing to go public on the New York Stock Exchange. This company has deep technical accumulation and strength in the technology of blood glucose measurement.
According to public information,
Apple is one of Rockley Photonics’ very important customers.Apple and another major customer accounted for 99.6% of the company’s total revenue in 2019, and 100% in 2020.
According to sources, Rockley Photonic is negotiating with Apple to sign supply and development related matters.
The company’s CEO said,
The blood glucose detection technology it developed will be applied to consumer products in 2022. Using this technology will greatly improve the convenience of blood glucose measurement, and sensors can be used to monitor blood glucose levels.
In this regard, some outsiders pointed out that the technology will be applied to Apple’s next-generation Apple Watch, but the company’s CEO refused to disclose to the outside world whether the product is related to Apple.
It is worth mentioning that Apple submitted a new patent application to the US Patent and Trademark Office.
The patent shows,It is planning to launch a technology called “megahertz spectroscopy and imaging enhanced by environmental sensors in a dynamic environment,” which will allow Apple Watch to emit radio frequency, and then calculate the degree of radio frequency absorption to obtain blood glucose readings.
However, because it supports non-invasive blood glucose detection, it means that Apple Watch will be packed with more sensors, which will put a greater pressure on the body space, battery consumption will also be much faster than in the past, and the price should rise after the cost rises.
