The Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches on the market. It might even be the best. With some of the poor choices for Android users, folks might start to wonder if an Apple Watch is the way to go, but would that even work? The Apple Watch Series 3 and 4 have standalone LTE — now can I use it with my Android phone? The answer is still no... mostly.

On that note, if you're incredibly enterprising and you have a family member with another iPhone (or an older iPhone yourself), you can swap your SIM into that iPhone and set up a watch that way, then put the SIM back into your Android device and use it.

More specifically, an optical system is configured to perform absorption spectroscopy. The technique enables determination of the concentration of a target substance by applying light with known properties, like wavelength and energy, to a sample. As light passes through the sample, the substance absorbs energy at certain wavelengths, causing the light's properties to change upon exit. Comparing light … [Read more...] about Apple continuing work on non-invasive glucose monitoring tech for Apple Watch
