About Us

Our Mission

We are a fast-growing startup founded in 2013. Our mission is to enable everyone to be actively involved in their well-being and health through products that are simple and pleasant to use.

Our flagship product, K'Watch Glucose, is a Continuous Blood Glucose Monitor (CGM) which takes the form of a smartwatch and is accompanied by a patch that makes the CGM invisible and painless.

The development of our product has been supported from the outset by public (Ile-De-France Region, BPI France, Eurostars, EIC accelerator) and private funding (specialised Business Angels and Beurer, a German leader in diabetes).

Our values

Nothing is impossible

We seek to push the limits in every domain, to find innovative and unexpected solutions. We are shifting the boundaries of the possible for the ultimate well-being of those who will use our products.

Passion and Faith

We are driven by a common passion: to create products and services that are both simple and pleasant to use. We believe in their immense potential for human beings.

Active Listening

Listening and caring are at the core of our approach. Everyone’s experience and opinion is unique. We treasure this, and strive to find it in every interaction.

It’s the encounter of the tribal world, our origins, and the stars, a journey, an adventure.
This is PK, a journey towards the human being.
