For those people who suffer from diabetes, this blood sugar band makes monitoring one's health a much more natural process––both practically and visually. Called the Sugar, this BOLTgroup concept is an innovative spin on a personal diagnostic device that's effortless in use and fashionable with its ribbon-like form.

One small component is designed to be adhered to the user's skin, constantly gauging blood sugar levels as you go about your day. The glucometer's information is sent to an accessory that looks like a flexible, futuristic wristwatch, displaying an ongoing graph of up and down patterns. This analysis enables the patient to take note of how activities and foods influence her health. The monitor could also be synced with a smartphone app for extra information, enabling a person to take her wellbeing into her own hands on a daily basis.
