As we understand, diabetics have to constantly check their sugar levels to make sure that it is maintained at a certain level and how this is done is that they would have to prick their fingers several times a day in order to draw the necessary blood to do the sugar level testing. To some the pain is nothing more than a prick of the finger, to others doing this several times a day can be a dreaded process, which is why Christopher Stamp came up with the Glucowatch, a device that would allow diabetics to check their sugar level through a painless process.


All the user would have to do is wrap the watch around their wrist and through the use of a┬áremovable sweat permeable strip (which can be replaced effortlessly) the watch will be able to read the sugar levels of the user through their sweat, as opposed to their blood.┬áThe watch also features two rubber buttons – one is the acknowledgement button that illuminates the screen when pressed and to also put an end to the alerts, while the second button is a sound button that gives the user the choice of putting the device in sound or vibration mode.

The watch also comes with speakers and a USB port and a CD-ROM which would help to program the watch accordingly and tweak the interface to display the relevant information. Frankly speaking if they did not mention that this was a watch designed with diabetics in mind to check their sugar levels, it is otherwise a pretty decent look watch and rather eye-catching and could have totally passed off as a fashion statement.
