Via Wearable:

Sony and Ericsson have teamed up to develop a wearable concept that helps diabetics monitor their glucose levels on the go.

The prototype is able to track the user’s blood sugar levels, activity, sleep and heart rate, while also providing alerts if glucose levels drop. And with the device harbouring an LTE-M/Cat-M1 chipset from Altair, the wristband is able to remain connected and stay tracking even without tethering to a smartphone.

We don’t yet know what the device will look like, however. While it could offer a similar form factor to the image above, it appears more likely that it will look like a more traditional tracker.

“The wristband prototype is one proof of concept for health services with the potential to significantly improve quality of life,” said Izumi Kawanishi, director of Sony Mobile. “We selected Altair’s ALT1210 chipset as it offers unparalleled low power consumption and cost efficiency, while its reduced size is essential for integration in the wristband form factor.”
