Our mobile application GlucoNightWatch was born a year ago, it was conceived to meet the needs of some close friends, whose 9 years old daughter had developed Type 1 diabetes.

They had searched without success for an alarm system to help them reducing the risk of nocturnal hypoglycemia going undetected, as they were waking up every two hours to check glucose levels, but the available products didn’t provide a solution to their problem.

We ended up developing the free App GlucoNightWatch, an application for Android phones capable of periodically logging readings from the Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre glucose sensors using the NFC interface, and generating alarms sent to other phones for situations configured by the user.

If you are interested, you can find more information about how we started in our blog.

The App was a true success, since we launched thousands of families have benefited from it, and we have received a lot of heartfelt messages of gratitude from parents all around the world.

However, although it has been a success, we believe that its adoption has been limited by the need to wear a mobile phone directly over the FreeStyle Libre sensor, as even with the smallest phones this can be bulky and uncomfortable.

Ten months ago, we decided to start developing a bracelet that could read the glucose levels from the FreeStyle Libre sensor and communicate via Bluetooth to the mobile phone.

We believe that this was the right approach to make the solution more accessible, it also allowed us to develop the GlucoNightWatch App to be compatible with both Android and Iphone devices.

The combined solution of bracelet and mobile app will be more comfortable to wear and more reliable for collection of data from the sensor, and will continue to benefit from our simple to use, proven and reliable App.

We already have a working prototype, and now we want to reduce its size and integrate it into an easy to wear band that can be comfortably worn all day and all night, a consumer grade product that will be a true guardian of your diabetes.
