One of the most practical ways in which the Apple Watch will be benefiting people is through a series of health-centric apps such as the glucose monitoring app by Dexcom. Created in anticipation of the smartwatch's release, it addresses the fact that 5-10% of the 29 million Americans that have diabetes are Type 1, a staggering number that continues to grow.
With more awareness of how their bodies work throughout the day, the such programs as this glucose monitoring app by Dexcom will become integral in people's lives. According to Forbes, "Dexcom built two blood glucose apps: one for letting users view the information and one to share data with another person like a doctor or caregiver." This shows just how helpful such a development is.
