Different “smart” watches are already able to determine the frequency of the heartbeat, the amount of necessary workload and even the level of human stress. Soon, a number of important parameters will add to this list – thanks to a new way of determining blood composition without the “traditional” finger piercing patented by Google.

The principle of its operation is based on the creation of a gas pulse sent through a special barrel in which the microparticles are located. A jet of gas pierces the skin, captures a tiny drop of blood and, under the influence of negative pressure, sucks it inside the device.

The whole process is absolutely painless and does not carry the threat of infection. Google also suggests using the technology as a glucometer for diabetics.

In recent years, Google along with its competitor – Apple is actively developing the scope of wearable medical devices. The company already has patents for smart lenses , cloud sensors that help people with diabetes and other medical devices. The main goal of the Internet giant in this direction is to reduce the maximum of human health indications in one device.
