Fitbit adds feature to app for tracking glucose levels

Monday 15 February 2021 | 15:25 CET | News
Fitbit, recently bought by Google, has added a new feature to its app that allows diabetics to manage their blood glucose levels by logging or importing their levels and seeing their trends in one place. The feature is not available from Fitbit's existing wearables; peope have to either import or manually log blood sugar data into the Fitbit app by themselves. After doing so, they can set personalised ranges so they can see when they are outside their target range and also look at daily or periodic trends.
