Apple is making headway in its secret bid to develop a glucose tracker for the Apple Watch, Bloomberg reports. The company has reportedly been working on the project for years, and is now close to announcing the tracker, which would use a non-invasive sensor to measure the wearer’s blood sugar levels.

If the reports are true, the tracker would be a game-changer for people with diabetes, who currently have to rely on painful and invasive finger-pricking to monitor their blood sugar levels. It would also be a major coup for Apple, which has been looking to expand the health-tracking capabilities of its popular wearable device.

The tracker is said to be based on technology developed by startups GlucoSense and SanoIQ, both of which have been working on non-invasive glucose monitoring. Apple is reportedly working on two different versions of the tracker, one that uses a sensor to measure glucose levels in the wearer’s blood, and another that uses a sensor to measure levels in the wearer’s interstitial fluid (the fluid that surrounds the cells).

The tracker is still in the early stages of development, and it’s not clear when it will be ready for public release. However, if the reports are true, it could be a major step forward for Apple’s health ambitions, and a huge boon for people with diabetes.
