Hello, Lingo: Next-Gen Health Coach is FDA-Cleared

Our consumer biowearable provides personalized insights and coaching to help people improve their health.

Not all health journeys are the same. What works for a friend might not work for you — but how can you even keep track of what does and doesn’t work in the first place?

Our Lingo consumer biowearable has received FDA clearance, and it’s big news because now insights about your health can come right from your body.

This is technology that goes beyond a step-counter. Here are three things you need to know about this game-changing product.

Lingo Reads a Key Biomarker in Your Body: Glucose

Lingo uses a biosensor based on our continuous glucose monitoring technology that is already being used by about 6 million people globally.1 Its tiny filament rests just under the skin so it can continuously measure the blood glucose in your interstitial fluid, which is the fluid between cells.

This is part of what makes Lingo unique: With the help of a biosensor that can send minute-by-minute data to a smartphone, you can learn from what’s happening inside your body as you do activities or fuel your body.

Lingo’s Technology Gives You More Than Numbers

But that’s just the start. Lingo is more than a consumer biowearable that tracks blood glucose. It’s able to provide personalized insights and coaching through an app that interprets what your biosensor reports.

Different foods and activities can make your body feel like it’s on a glucose roller coaster of spikes and crashes, which can affect your energy levels. Lingo’s coaching application helps you translate the insights from your body so you can pursue new healthy habits that could help you manage any concerning patterns you see in your blood glucose levels. It’ll help break down the fundamentals and connect the dots between any changes you make in your lifestyle, like diet or exercise, and your glucose.

With Knowledge and Motivation, You Make the Change

Speaking of patterns: Yes, monitoring your glucose levels could help change your health.

Your glucose levels are unique, and they can vary throughout the day. If you realize that your blood glucose is constantly high, or if you’re seeing a glucose roller coaster of spiking and crashing, then you can take steps with the help of Lingo to explore healthy habits that could help flatten your glucose curves.

When it comes to continuous glucose monitoring, seeing is believing. If you’re trying to eat healthier by adding more greens to your meals, for example, you can monitor your blood glucose levels over time with Lingo and use its coaching as you learn how your body reacts.

According to Fred St. Goar, cardiologist and medical director of El Camino Health Heart and Vascular Institute, research has shown that working on maintaining lower glucose curves can help lower the risk of things like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers. Knowing more about your blood glucose levels can help you proactively manage your health based on the insights that come from your body.

Putting your health in your hands.

This is the new era of health tech: Opening the door for you to listen to what your body is telling you so you can create healthy habits in ways that work for you.

Not just anybody. You.
