Apple is said to have polled Apple Watch users in Brazil, asking questions about eating habits, medications and blood sugar monitoring.
The customer survey asks many general questions about the Apple Watch user experience, including built-in health features like booth reminders and activity tones. Notably, it also contains questions about third-party health features.
The questionnaire, which was shared with 9to5Mac, specifically asks users if they use third-party applications to manage health information and data. Some of the options include monitoring eating habits, tracking workouts, and monitoring blood sugar.
Apple has used polls like this in the past to gauge interest in new features before they launch. In June 2020, for example, he asked Brazilian users about USB power adapters that once came with iPhones. Later in 2020, it removed the included power bricks from iPhone packages for environmental reasons.
There are also a slew of rumors that Apple is considering adding glucose monitoring to the Apple Watch. An SEC filing earlier in May hinted at the introduction of blood sugar monitoring. A January report suggested that Apple was testing blood sugar monitoring for “reliability and stability.”
Additionally, Apple has filed numerous patents focused on non-invasive measurements that could monitor a user’s blood sugar. These patents and patent applications go back years.
