Scientists are working on biosensors that could monitor glucose levels through sweat & tearslol. do you think it's realistic for the apple watch to have a needle attached to it to measure your glucose everyday?

You're a little early on this. But I’m not entirely sure the Apple Watch will be an annual upgrade every year. Apple really is unpredictable how they do things, so with all these new health aspects now, perhaps it could be spring 2020 for all we know when the next Apple Watch might launch. Really depends on the technology advancements if it’s ready for the market or not.2019? Finally glucose monitor? if not - what else could we expect?
I doubt that. That technology _is_ coming, there’s no doubt Apple is experimenting with it, but I don’t think that would debut by 2019 if there is a Series 5 next fall. I think that technology still at least two years out, but will be fairly impressive when it does launch, because it poses to have a greater brightness over OLED, less power draw, which equals two longer battery longevity, and higher resolution.MicroLED might be a thing for Apple Watch Series 5.
true.. but.. those tests require consumables, that is, they are not purely spectrophotometric (which the watch CAN do), but require some chemical and/or enzyme additives to work with that will be used (consumed) in the process... which means on some basis a 'cartridge' of some sort containing the consumables would have to be inserted into whatever measuring device... a larger hand held unit, no problem, a watch? might be a problem depending on how frequently it would have to be replaced. Not to mention, would interfere with the whole water proof thing. In other words, I wouldn't hold our breaths for this one.

The blood pressure meter will be the easiest to implement. Some other bands already do that (not sure of how accurate they are though but the technology is not unknown)Potentially in the pipeline for future Apple Watches, not just Apple Watch 5:
- blood glucose meter
- blood pressure meter
- stress meter
- inflammation meter
- hydration meter
- even less bezel
- even more battery life
- they'll always try to make it thinner
- Do Not Disturb while Driving
- hand gestures
- Face ID
- Smart bands
- round watch
We already can and you can buy them at any retail pharmacy. (Pharmacist here)I bet it’ll be minor, better battery life, faster... I’m not sure what other realistic health monitors could be put in given where we’re at today, maybe smart band for blood pressure. AW4 is a pretty significant upgrade, imo.
