- Fitbit has now introduced a new feature in their app that can track you blood sugar level to help diabetic patients.
- The data has to be entered manually – and it is not built in to Fitbit’s wearable gadgets.
- ECG support Sense has also expanded to US, Canada and New Zealand Territories.
If you are a diabetic patient and a Fitbit owner, then there is a good news for you. Now you don’t have to run towards a third party app to keep check on your health conditions whether it is related to Blood Sugar level or glucose level.
Unfortunately, this feature is not available in current Fitbit wearables but if you desire you can import or manually log the blood sugar data in the Fitbit app yourself. When you do so, you can set a wide range of custom targets and also check the variations in the trends throughout the day or any other period.
Standard blood sugar level tracking is free but the Premium subscribers can get the option to track the sugar levels above the 30 days time period along with the trends.
The Fitbit sense owners currently residing in US Territories such as Guam and Puerto and some territories of Canada and New Zealand can use the ECG app to check for irregularities in the heart beat. Meanwhile, all the Charge 4 owners will get an update that will allow them to check their blood oxygen SpO2 levels in the app for free.
In addition to this, the Charge 4, Inspire 2 and the Versa 2 users can even check their 7 Days trends in the phone’s health app for free. Note that this was previously limited to the Sense and Versa 3 users.
You may be surprised that Fitbit isn’t going to add blood sugar level tracking into its wearable gadgets for a while but the companies like Quantum Operation are claiming to monitor glucose levels without drawing blood. Having said that, this technology is still on early stages but when it will reach its peak, it could be greatly helpful for the Diabetic patients who want to keep a complete record of their health.
