Truly disruptive

Movano's design levels up the consumer centric glucose monitor put out by Apple a year ago by making a truly noninvasive continuous glucose monitor that is also sleek and stylish. The consumerization of healthcare has long been a trend, and Movano is fully leveraging that trend with a solution that reduces the literal consumer pain point of a finger stick to zero and also looks good to wear. Movano is also starting with a model that offers continuous readings, which taps into another key healthcare trend of diagnostics that favors continuous measurements over discrete points as clearer biomarkers. Clients should monitor this company's offerings for regulatory approval and track its progress against close competitor DiaMonTech.
