Apple Watch app to show glucose levels for diabetics

The Wall Street Journal (paywall) reports that medical firm DexCom Inc is currently at work creating an app for the upcoming Apple Watch that will display blood sugar levels — providing at-a-glance information for those with diabetes.



Apple Watch Release Date

Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed in a company earnings call that the first generation Apple Watch will start shipping in April 2015.

Speaking to analysts and shareholders Tim Cook said:

“Development for Apple Watch is right on schedule and we expect to begin shipping in April.”

Prior to the recent earnings call Apple only offered a vague early 2015 launch window, with the Apple Watch website stating that the smartwatch was ‘Coming Early 2015’.

This announced shipping window from Tim Cook aligns with the start of a new financial year for Apple.

Other than stating that Apple will begin shipment of the Apple Watch in April no further details were given, such as a range of price points or information on global release plans.

The entry level Apple Watch will start at $349 US dollars when it launches in April.

Checking the Time

I’m probably a little late. But, this is Pip Ticker a site covering the news, features and speculation surrounding the upcoming Apple Watch.

We are just a few months away from the launch of the first generation of Apple Watch and speculation is rife as to how the family of devices will work, how third-party apps will operate on the smaller screen and just how Apple Stores are going to change in order to sell the no-doubt pricey gold versions.
