NEW YORK – One Drop has expanded its Apple Watch diabetes management solution with a wireless blood glucose monitoring system that connects directly to Apple Watch, allowing users to accurately log, monitor and share their diabetes data and import other biometric telemetry straight into One Drop for diabetes management.
Previously, One Drop had launched a companion Apple Watch app to manually log blood glucose, food, medication and exercise moments, and view daily stats and goals. Now, One Drop gives users the option to seamlessly transfer blood glucose data from One Drop | Chrome directly to the Apple Watch companion app, making One Drop the first and only device to send blood glucose data directly to Apple Watch, said Jeff Dachis, CEO of One Drop, in a statement.
Apple Watch Bluetooth connectivity is the newest of thousands of One Drop integrations that allow users to pull their data from other apps and devices into One Drop | Mobile. The solution captures data from Apple HealthKit, Google Fit, Fitbit, Dexcom and Companion Medical’s InPen, among others. With the release of iOS 12, One Drop will further expand iOS integrations by launching Apple Health Records and Siri Shortcuts.
Users subscribed to One Drop | Experts can grant their coach permission to view vitals, labs and medications shared to Apple Health Records. Personalized Siri Shortcuts to log food moments and recall average blood glucose and percent in blood glucose range are also featured.
One Drop also recently announced One Drop | Automated Decision Support, which uses artificial intelligence to accurately provide forecasted blood glucose prediction values over time and provide behavioral recommendations based on those predictions. One Drop’s propriety AI generates accurate predictions for a single user based on over 1.3 billion aggregate longitudinal diabetes health data of all people utilizing the One Drop platform. The service will be offered to free mobile users later this month.
“For too long the diabetes industry has operated on point solutions and closed systems focused on the needs of healthcare providers in the clinic, rather than the needs of the people using the systems to manage their disease every day,” said Dachis. “We are excited to further empower One Drop users with this exciting addition to the One Drop experience.”
