    I heard Tim was wearing some type of diabetes monitoring device. Does anyone know if it will be incorporated into AW4? Or, will it come out in AW5?

    He’s testing continuous glucose monitoring wearing a dexcom that sends readings to his watch. If you have a dexcom you can do this now on Apple Watch. However reason why Tim is testing is because Apple are trying to develop a non invasive glucose monitoring sensor for a future edition of the Apple Watch.

    But don't you need to do it via the phone, i.e., there's no direct connection between the Dexcom and the Apple Watch, right?
