Two Innovative Wearables Took Diabetes Control to the Next Level at CES 2020

With 2019 being such an environmentally-focused year. It is no surprise that this year’s CES 2020 was focused on renewable energy, but it didn’t stop there. Health technology is always an important sector at CES 2020. There were two wearable devices that allow diabetics to control their glucose levels through non-invasive methods in a new, innovative way. There are advantages for users, but they also have their limitations.

The Add Care Glutrac

The Glutrac by Add Care aims to provide non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring. Considering that more than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, the Glutrac hasn’t fully made good on their promise to do so.

While achieving the level of accuracy not only helps a person monitor their glucose levels without pricking their finger, it provides the data you need at any given moment. Currently only the thing that is close to this are sensors that enter interstitial fluid, which require a small amount of penetration. The watch claims to be able to detect glucose levels from just optical sensors. Add Care, which is a company from Hong Kong, needs to prove the upmost accuracy to get approved by the FDA.

The goal of Glutrac is to monitor blood sugar without pricking your finger to get blood. These new technologies use artificial intelligence to estimate the person’s glucose levels. In its early stages, this technology could expect to see more of these products at CES.

Basically the Glutrac is a smartwatch that will measure blood sugar. It watches your vital signs, including heart rate and uses AI to calculate glucose. According to the site MoneyPug, which is known as a platform to find the best health insurance, the watch has sensors on the back of the watch that can record health data every 15 minutes, providing data on where your blood sugar is at interminably. Furthermore there is a sensor to watch where you can take on-demand readings. The process takes about one minute to measure and analyze in the cloud and deliver measurements.


Believe it or not, dogs can smell when your blood sugar is fluctuating. AerBetic was designed a device using this idea. Not only can this help you recognize the pain and expense of traditional diabetes management, it can help you keep track of your glucose levels. For a while there has needed to be a change in the way we approach diabetes. AerBetic uses the latest gas-sensing technology to create a truly non-invasive, affordable, and wearable diabetes product.

AerBetic is a non-invasive wearable diabetes monitor that continuously provides your blood sugar levels. It also comes with an application that allows the user to set up alerts in order to communicate to a network of health care providers.

To monitor the changes in blood sugar levels, the AerBetic uses a nano sensor that detects gases humans emit. Scientists have identified that this can be an early indicator of conditions such as hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.

Nano sensors are the core technology of the AerBetic. These devices are customized to the application. The sensors acts like a dog’s nose, and it has the ability to sense multiple gases simultaneously. These low detection levels are necessary to monitor your blood sugar.

Health & Tech

Like renewable energy, the health industry is going to be revolutionized by technology. There is seemingly no end to the innovations that technology will provide for health and health care. As the health of our world continues to fluctuate with foods full of sugar and fat and we exercise less and sit at our desks. With such a pervasive disease like diabetes, new technologies are essential.

Despite that renewable energy and eco-friendly products took center stage at CES 2020, health will continue to be a focus of the conference. Not only is creating a closed loop insulin dispenser a key issue for diabetes, these non-invasive wearables will sense when your blood sugar is fluctuating. Diabetes isn’t the only disease that could be facilitated by technology, the whole industry will change as new technologies like these become more commonplace. It will continue to be a focus of the CES conference, just like renewable energy products.
