JUST PRESS & READ
K’Watch Glucose is the first wearable tracker that measures your glucose effortlessly, painlessly and in seconds. K’Watch allows diabetics to self-monitor their glucose levels without the need for cumbersome and painful blood-based tests. K’Watch Glucose requires no calibration, just a simple press gesture on the watch to displays the glucose level.
How does it work ? K’Watch Glucose is equipped with K’apsul®, utilizing a revolutionary biosensor which, in contact with the skin, tests glucose levels without any blood sample. Quite imperceptible and totally painless, K’apsul can take unlimited measurements within a 30 day period with results being displayed on the K’Watch screen as well as synced to its dedicated app.
WORK & SPORTS FRIENDLY
No bulky material, K’Watch Glucose can be discreetly worn all day long and in all conditions. Monitoring your blood glucose in every social setting like work becomes possible, as well as during sport and exercise when glucose levels are prone to spike. K’Watch Glucose can also track steps taken, distance traveled and calories burnt.
K’Watch Glucose makes diabetics life easier. In order to better monitor their health, users can connect K’Watch Glucose with its dedicated iOS and Android app to show a complete data history over time and share those results with a relative or a professional. K’Watch can also send alerts to remind users to check their glucose level.
Diabetes is characterized by chronic hyperglycaemia, that is, an excess of sugar in the blood. With 415M of people affected, 1 in 11 worldwide, diabetes is progressing rapidly. It is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, lower limb amputation and 1.5 million deaths per year.
Despite these risks, studies show that 80% of people on treatment do not monitor their diabetes enough and do not measure their blood glucose levels as many times as necessary, that is to say between four and ten times a day. Pain, Cumbersome, lack of time, difficulties of understanding are as much brake to a good monitoring of the blood sugar.

K’apsul is a tiny consumable that need to be plugged in K’Watch devices.
K’aspul can make unlimited measurements for a period of 30 days, after which it should be changed.
Each K’apsul integrates 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 need 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 need to decide the interval between each measurement before he/she begins the recording sequence.
K’aspul is easy to insert and remove from the K’Watch watch. After 30 days of measurement, the K’aspul just need 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 this question so this is in the list of our projects. This is one of our priority which will require first the adult version to pass medical certification.
The K’Watch Glucose should be priced at 149 $/€
The K’Watch Athlete should be priced at 199 $/€
The K’apsul Glucose sensor, valid for 30 days, should be priced at 99 $/€
