I hope (and trust) that Apple gets this right because the thought of Google led health monitoring is truly frightening. We could well be living through an historic epoch in the emergence of a new industry.
I feel that Raman spectroscopy looks very promising - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raman_spectroscopy. There is scope for miniaturisation in this technique and a Raman spectrometer can sample tiny volumes, non-invasively, very accurately. Just not sure about detector sensitivity~integration time. One day, Raman spectrometry in miniature form will make a splash. All the best.
If the sensors were in EarPods, the functionality would be enhanced, dramatically in some respects. I believe that one of the biggest drivers of child visits to GPs in the US is ear infection. EarPods could be used to detect this using activated polymers and sense ear pressure to ensure that music isn't played too loudly - a serious concern for young people in a connected age.
