"We donâ(TM)t want to put the watch through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) process," Cook said. "I wouldnâ(TM)t mind putting something adjacent to the watch through it, but not the watch, because it would hold us back from innovating too much, the cycles are too long. But you can begin to envision other things that might be adjacent to it â" maybe an app, maybe something else." Apple already has several apps designed to help share important medical data between hospitals, health institutions and health insurance companies; it also has a platform dedicated to improving communication between doctors and researchers. But a new medical device, not an app, could be something else entirely. Tech Insider offers one idea: earbuds that can measure your health, and deliver that data to your phone.
