Apple has reportedly hired on approximately 200 individuals with PhDs as it looks to improve and innovate the health capabilities of the Apple Watch, according to BGR. So says a story by CNBC which cited sources who have seen Apple's CEO using the gadget at Apple's campus.

Last month, CNBC reported that Apple has a 30-person team in Palo Alto quietly working on non-invasive and continuous glucose monitoring - something that would be welcomed by the millions of diabetes sufferers worldwide who now have to draw blood to get a glucose reading.

In February, Cook spoke about his personal interest in glucose monitors as he collected an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow.

Apple's interest in non-invasive glucose monitoring techniques could indeed pave the way for some breakthrough research in treating diabetes and other emerging challenges in life sciences.

According to CNBC, the Apple team is working at a non-descript office, miles from corporate headquarters. "It's mentally anguishing to stick yourself many times a day to check your blood sugar", he added. "There is lots of hope out there that if someone has constant knowledge of what they're eating, they can instantly know what causes the response. and that they can adjust well before they become diabetic".

Apple's plans in the space could be quite far along. This will be a significant development for the Cupertino giant's as it will take its first step into the field of biosciences, in addition to computers, mobiles, and software. The initiative was envisioned by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Apple is said to be working on a wearable device which constantly records blood sugar levels, but in a non-invasive way.
