    Now that the Glucowatch has gone the way of the dodo, is anyone aware of any bona-fide such devices in the works? Ive seen quite a few whilst Googling, but they seem to be of dubious nature!

    This is a year old, but I remember seeing a thread recently on the parents forum.

    Pelikan has an electronic lancing device that is supposedly pain-free. There is more about this under the CWD forum for Glucose Meters.

    Nope.

    Search is your friend. I did a big writeup on these companies and their pretty watch-like things with cool looking graphs about a year ago. They create pretty websites, do lots of announcements, show incredibly good "internal" study results, suck up large amounts of venture capital money....

    and then vanish.

    Convincing results of Solianis’ multisensor system in home-use trial
    Solianis’ multisensor system for non-invasive Continuous Glucose Monitoring is currently being tested by diabetic patients in the home and work environment. 12 patients have completed a 10-day trial aimed at assessing system reliability. Results indicate that the system tracks glucose in home-use settings and is sensitive to hypoglycemic glucose excursions.

    It seems that the larger companies are focusing on better continuous invasive methods.
