I seem to remember checking this out on Amazon some mos ago. There were some not too expensive models. I was on mdi insulin at the time and concerned about going low in the middle of the night because I live alone and don't have anyone to check on me. I think the name brand one has been discontinued.

I have not heard of a watch, but my endo had me use this pad you stick in your stomach (cant remember what its called) but it traced my blood sugars 24 hours a day.

There was high hopes for a product called the Gluco-Watch but it had trouble in trials. There are continuous glucose monitors made by Dexcom and Medtronic. These use a sensor under the skin that last about two weeks and a transmitter with a receiver unit. Be sure to check with your insurance provider as they can be expensive. Just like the Gluco-Watch they have to be calibrated with the traditional finger prick and are not as reliable.
