PKvitality is an advanced bio-wearable company currently working on K’Watch, a CGM in a form of a smartwatch. It measures the glucose level from the interstitial fluid painlessly. Completely invisible to others, the diabetic patient can check its level discreetly and be alerted by an on-body vibration of hypo or hyperglycemia episodes to come.Using the same technology, PKvitality is also working on K’Watch Athlete, a smartwatch which will provide real-time monitoring of their lactic acid – an indicator of muscle fatigue – to significantly improve an athlete’s training and performance.We mainly target the diabetic patients taking insulin (est. 100M). Our unique user experience and price structure should enable us to target both diabetics Type 1 and Type 2.

Compared to the Glucose Monitoring devices, K'Watch has the following advantages:

  • Convenient
  • Painless
  • Irritation-free
  • Discreet and safe
  • Affordable

The system measures glucose levels by analysing interstitial fluid (ISF), painlessly, blood-free, and with high accuracy. This is possible thanks to SkinTaste®, a patented biosensor array that uses micro points (
