Apple CEO Tim Cook has been wearing a prototype glucose tracker that pairs with the Apple Watch, according to a report from CNBC.

It seems as though Cook isn't protected from the always looming threat of intelligence leaks even at the famously secretive Apple Campus in Cupertino.

If you had trouble believing the Apple Watch is genuinely close to non-invasively monitoring its wearer's blood sugar the first and second time we heard speculation on the matter recently, maybe third time will be the charm. According to the latest report from CNBC, the diabetes sensor, which needs to be paired with the Apple Watch, was donned by Apple's chief executive over the smartwatch.

Special counsel pick could boost faith in Justice Dept.
President Donald Trump seemed to muddle some of the competing explanations for firing FBI Director James Comey last week. He said it is "totally ridiculous" to think he's done anything that would amount to an impeachable offense.

Apple's interest in non-invasive glucose monitoring techniques could indeed pave the way for some breakthrough research in treating diabetes and other emerging challenges in life sciences.

This development provides more credibility to the reports that Apple has hired a small team of biomedical scientists to secretly develop technology which can be used to track blood sugar levels in a non-invasive manner. Speaking to CNBC last month, biomedical expert John L. Smith said developing such a device has been "the most hard technical challenge I have encountered in my career".

In February, Cook spoke about his personal interest in glucose monitors as he collected an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow.

New Skoda Karoq SUV
The petrol engines are a 1-litre TSI unit with 113 bhp and 175 Nm of torque or a 1.5-litre TSI with 148 bhp and 250 Nm of torque. The Karoq's European sales will commence in the second half of this year, while its Indian debut is expected to happen in 2018.

Apple's plans in the space could be quite far along. The current glucose trackers on the market rely on tiny sensors and rumours suggests that the company is already conducting feasibility trials in the Bay Area.

Apple does not typically comment on rumours such as this one.
