Apple vs Fitbit in the health sector

Whilst Fitbit are showing interest in glucose monitoring, reports came out last year that Apple is also looking at the same thing. However both Apple and Fitbit are going in a different direction for obtaining glucose readings with Sano’s tech using tiny needles to takes its measurements, whilst Apple has been developing a design that uses a non-intrusive technique with current efforts being reported as not great.

Whilst Park was very optimistic about the new glucose tech, he stopped short of saying future Fitbit devices will have built-in blood sugar monitors, but this investment shows the company is at least interested in that direction.
