Looks like the tech rat race between Samsung and Apple is heating up. According to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, Samsung’s Galaxy Ring might be able to monitor your blood sugar level without breaking the skin. This is how they could do it.

According to a Bloomberg report, Samsung confirmed that they are developing a blood sugar sensor that does not require a finger to be poked. If all goes well, this blood sugar sensor will be offered on Samsung devices in five years.

At last week's Unpacked event, Samsung showed off the Galaxy Ring smart ring with health tracking capabilities. We have yet to confirm the features and capabilities compared to the sensor on the existing Galaxy Watch. However, we can agree that a ring on the finger is more comfortable to wear while sleeping than a smartwatch. This allows sleep tracking, blood pressure, breathing rate, body temperature and pulse to be tracked while sleeping more easily.

In addition, Samsung is also considering continuous blood pressure detection without the device undergoing a calibration process first. With round-the-clock tracking, you can track any health issues in real time. Putting temperature and pulse sensors on earphones is also considered among Samsung's short-term plans.

It is estimated that 20% of adults in Malaysia suffer from diabetes. That makes Malaysia the country with the highest number of patients in the Asia Pacific region. There is still no cure for this disease despite many cheesy advertisements on social media and roadside boards saying otherwise. Plus, Diabetic patients have to monitor their sugar level several times a day by pricking their fingers.
