If this is the same watch they've been working on for 10+ years made by Cygnus (not sure if the company name is the same, they declared bankruptcy ages ago), it's not reliable. Things like sweat, dehydration and such can make it inaccurate. And it causes irritation rashes. I could live with the rashes, but hardly need a low sugar sweat to mess up my watch. Wish they could get it working well though!

I believe its available for hospital use but costs a huge amount to buy, run and read and is not particularly accurate. If that's what you want you would be better off with one of the CGM systems on the market for home use.
