Funky and Fashionable Watch May Pave The Way For Non-Invasive Diabetes Monitoring

Created by designer Sunghoon Mun is a diabetes watch prototype that provides an element of fashion, along with a much needed method to monitor health non-invasively.

Traditional diabetes testing is invasive and even painful, and since it must be completed at scheduled intervals, changes in health status can slip through the cracks. By providing a method to constantly monitor the health of a diabetic in a non-invasive way, the G Tone watch allows more accurate and immediate healthcare information.

The G Tone watch for diabetics constantly monitors the Blood Sugar Levels, so with a simple glance at their wrist, diabetics know when it's time to response medically so that their health isn't negatively impact.

The G Tone diabetes watch isn't necessarily subtle, but if this design introduces a new way for health monitoring, then perhaps more fashionable items will come out later.
