According to a report from last month, it suggested that Apple had a “secret” team that was working on a glucose monitoring sensor that could find its way into the Apple Watch. Now according to a report from CNBC, it seems that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook could already be personally testing it out himself.

The report claims that Cook has been spotted on the Apple campus where he is testing out a glucose monitoring device that tracks blood sugar levels that is also connected to his Apple Watch. Based on this, it sounds like the team has yet to figure out a way to get it inside the Apple Watch as it seems like at the moment it still exists as a separate device.

CNBC also points at more evidence that such a device could be in the works at Apple, because when Cook spoke to a roomful of students at the University of Glasgow in February, he was reportedly quoted as saying, “I’ve been wearing a continuous glucose monitor for a few weeks. I just took it off before coming on this trip.”

We have heard rumors that the glucose sensor could find its way into the next-gen Apple Watch which should be officially announced in the second half of 2017, but until we hear it from Apple or see it ourselves, take it with a grain of salt.
