Apple looks to be making progress in its long-running ambition to add blood glucose monitoring to the Apple Watch.

According to Bloomberg, the company`s no-prick monitoring is now at the “proof-of-concept stage,” and it’s good enough to go to market once it’s smaller.

The technology, which utilizes lasers to detect glucose concentrations beneath the skin, was formerly tabletop-sized but has apparently improved to the point where an iPhone-sized wearable prototype is being developed.

According to insiders, the technology would not only assist patients with diabetes track their illnesses, but it would also ideally identify others who are prediabetic.

Apple is alleged to have kept the project hidden by running it as a supposedly separate company, Avolonte Health, but then folding it into the previously undisclosed Exploratory Design Group (XDG).

Alphabet’s health unit Verily shelved plans for a smart contact lens that would have measured glucose levels through tears in 2018.

The Apple Watch is widely touted as a health gadget, and it can detect indicators of atrial fibrillation, low blood oxygen levels, and ovulation cycles (as of Series 8).
