May 2017 – 70% of the following parts of the product are ready : the watch, the micro pump, the biosensors. We are still half of the way to finish the micro-needles but this part is moving forward rapidly.
Next steps : set up those last production details and launch the medical certification process.
In order to go faster with those steps, the team launches a funding campaign.
Product will be available as soon as medical certification is being passed. This date will vary from region to region. In the meantime, you are welcomed to subscribe to our newsletter in the contact page in order to be updated about our progresses.
The K’Watch Glucose pack consists of:
- 1 K’Watch Glucose watch
- 1 load box
- 1 free application
The K’Watch Athlete pack consists of:
- 1 K’Watch Athlete armband
- 1 load box
- 1 free application
K’apsul is a tiny consumable that need to be plugged in K’Watch devices.
K’apsul can make unlimited measurements for a period of 30 days, after which it should be changed.
Each K’apsul is composed of bio sensors and of SkinTaste technology, an array of micro-needles. At the touch-of-a button, the probes pumps a tiny drop of interstitial fluid into the K’Watch wearable device for bio-chemical analysis. While the user will feel the slight pressure of the probe pressing on their skin, they feel absolutely no pain as the sensor never reaches any nerve or blood vessel.
K’Watch is in a process of medical certification. During this process, clinical tests must be performed and officially validated, thus ensuring the accuracy of measurements.
K’Watch Glucose does not record glucose level automatically or continuously. User needs to press K’Watch on the skin before reading the result on the screen. User can however measure its glucose level as many time as he/she wants within the K’apsul‘s lifetime. He/she can also set automatic alerts on his/her K’Watch to be reminded to take measurements during the day.
K’Watch Athlete allows both on demand and continuous measurement. User just needs to decide the interval between each measurement before he/she begins the recording sequence.
K’apsul is easy to insert and remove from the K’Watch watch. After 30 days of measurement, the K’apsul just needs to be changed with another one thanks to the provided tool.
K’Watch can be worn as an armband, as a watch but also as a stand alone device kept in the charging box. So you can use it and continue to wear your other devices on the wrist.
We received many requests for it. So, it is in our list of projects. This is one of our priorities, but it will require the adult version to pass medical certification first.
The K’Watch Glucose should be priced at 149.90 $/€
The K’Watch Athlete should be priced at 199.90 $/€
The K’apsul Glucose sensor, valid for 30 days, should be priced at 99.90 $/€
The K’apsul Athlete sensor, valid for 30 days, should be priced at 149.90 $/€
All these prices are subject to change, depending on local duties and taxes.
Once the medical certification process for marketing K’Watch is finalized, a second process must be initiated so that it can be reimbursed by local social security and/or insurances. Level of reimbursement will vary. We will keep you updated via our newsletter.
We plan to launch a beta test 6 months before the end of the project.
The participants selected for the beta test will receive a product for an indeterminate period (only in Europe and in the USA).
K’Watch needs to obtain a medical certification, which is a very long and costly process. In order to launch our product faster, we need our community to help us fund our project.
We considered using crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo but those platforms do not accept projects with medical claims. Therefore we decide to launch our preorder directly from our site. All details HERE.
