@ganesh Fitness trackers have been on the rise for years: FitBit shipped 9.9 million of its wearable devices in 2019. But the next trend in wearables for medical technology is more specific. For diabetes patients, wearable continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) are set to become the new normal. Wearable CGMs remove the need for intermittent glucose testing and instead keep track of one’s blood sugar levels in real time. This allows users to see the immediate impacts of food and exercise, and shape their lifestyles accordingly. It can also catch cases of hyperglycemia immediately. Medical technology companies are jumping in with two feet: Dexcom, a CGM developer, had revenue of $1.9 billion in 2020 and expects a 15 to 20 percent jump in 2021.
