Signos, a startup developing wearable sensors designed to track your metabolism, just raised $20 million from investors, led by Cheyenne Ventures and GV (GOOGL).

Signos’ raise adds to the recent weight loss craze, fueled by Novo Nordisk’s (NVO) popular weight loss drugs Ozempic and Wegovy.

How It Works

Signos wants to help you battle diabetes by using continuous glucose monitors, or CGMs, to track your glucose levels over time.

A small sensor effectively keeps track of your metabolism as you go about your day, and sends your health data directly to your phone. It also offers personalized, real-time advice on what to eat, and how to exercise.

Acting in the Moment

For people with diabetes or other health issues, real-time data can be invaluable when making dietary decisions. Signos takes diabetes treatment one step further by educating users about how their metabolisms work. Based on data from the sensor, the Signos app can show how the body responds to certain foods, what causes glucose to spike, and what time of day to work out for the best results.
