(CNN) – If you own a smart watch or smart ring and use your device to measure your blood sugar levels, listen up: The FDA has issued a warning that could save your life.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning about the risks of using certain smart watches and smart rings to measure blood sugar levels. Gone are the claims that the product measures levels without piercing the skin. On Wednesday, the FDA said it has not cleared or approved any device intended to measure blood sugar levels alone. The agency warns that it can lead to inaccurate measurements and errors in diabetes management, which can be life-threatening.

The FDA did not mention specific brand names, but said sellers of these fraudulent devices use “non-invasive techniques” to advertise. You can also report problems with the use of your device through the FDA med-watch voluntary reporting form.
