A company hopes to pioneer a non-invasive continuous glucose monitor for wearable devices

Movano wants to revolutionise the way people measure their glucose levels. Instead of the invasive or expensive methods that diabetics currently use, Movano is developing a solution that could be embedded within a conventional smartwatch.

A non-invasive device for CGM's would be welcomed by me. Finding a place to attach invasive devices becomes challenging with long term use.  :)

I read this kind of stories every few weeks.I will believe when I see a prototype. I am using the FreeStyle Libre with the blucon nightrider and my cost of CGM is less than $1/ day becuase I can restart my Libre sensor and use it for 28 days instead of 14 days

Impressive development. They are planning to use RF to measure glucose, I will certainly buy it once it is available, I hope the solution will have the same or better MARD and I will be able to afford it. I tried many different CGMs like Dexcom G4/G5/G6(MARD 9.2%), Abbott's FreeStyle Libre(9.4%), Freestyle Libre Pro(12.4%), Senseonics's Eversense(8.5%, 2 calibrations), Guardian Connect CGM(8.7%, 3-4 calibrations) etc.. It's great to be non-invasive but at the same time it 1. Must be at least as accurate as popular CGM like Dexcom G6 or FreeStyle Libre, MARD <122. No more than 2 calibration in a day, 3. Must cost less than $2000/ year in the United States and $1000/year in other countries

Cost is important otherwise insurance companies will not reimburse it and cash patients are enough to sustain the product in the market. Most people I know use FreeStyle Libre from Abbott with Ambrosia's NightRider BluCon system which costs about $2000 in the United States while costs less than $1000 in Europe, and $500 in asia


I can imagine that in the following years, we'd all be wearing smart devices that will keep 24/7 check on our health for hundreds if not thousands of possible medical conditions. We are getting there little by little.
