[IP] Re: Blood Glucose Watch - Not GlucoWatch

The short answer is, the watch in Panic Room is neither a GlucoWatch nor some 
other real-life glucose testing watch. For the deeper answer to your 
question, read the November issue of Diabetes Interview magazine! 
dxed T1 9/92, pumping since 1/02

<< We rented the movie "Panic Room"  tonight.   In it the daugter is wearing
a watch (rather cute looking)  that is supposed to be taking readings
of her blood sugars.    It also alarms when she is low.    Much smaller
and nicer looking than the Glucowatch which appears to be quite bulky.

Is there another watch out there that I don't know about?   Or was this
supposed to be a generic version of the Glucowatch?    Or were they just
doing something that would visually let the viewer watch her blood sugars
to add anxiousness to the movie without knowing such a watch really
