Default iHealth Wireless Gluco-Monitoring System?

Has anyone tried the iHealth Wireless Gluco-Monitoring System?
https://ihealthlabs.com/glucometer/w...toring-system/

If so, did it seem to be accurate?

I am seriously considering switching to it simply for the ability to have automatic record keeping and trends through my iPhone.

The strips seem to be affordable as well.

I love every gadget, but before considering this one, make sure that your doc can access the data. Most of the endos prefer downloads to logbooks these days and the download has to be compatible with general doctor software.

I'd probably get it (strip price is good!), but I lose my Itouch on average of twice a day while I misplace my testing kit maybe once every other week.

Maybe hang it around your neck?

I can lose anything that's not attached at anytime. The other day I spent several minutes looking for my glasses..... I was wearing them!

Already have the nano around my neck. Bought a special carrier for it. I'm hopeless.

I looked at this some time ago, but rejected it in the end because the strips were not on NDSS list over here in Australia and I simply couldnt afford them, with the amount of testing I need to do.

I wanted it for the same reasons you do, and thats keeping records on my phone. Instead, I went with the Accuchek Aviva Connect. I just accessed what I think is the US site, and found that the meter is free. I hope. I really like mine, but I find the software periodically forgets how to be connected to by bluetooth so I have reverted to using Glooko which has no such issues.

https://www.accu-chek.com/meters/aviva-connect-meter

I have no clue about strip costs over there. The meter takes exactly the same strips as the regular Aviva Connect. I've found mine to be pretty accurate when compared to my Freestyle Lite, and Dario.

Dario might be another option for you. Its fiddly though.

[edit] Added a screenie for Glooko. Note the BP reading, thats from the iHealth wrist monitor. Glooko talks to a number of other apps, of which iHealth is one.

Also, should mention that I noticed that Bayer Contour Next just put out a bluetooth meter called Contour Next One. Has it's own app (apple and android). It's a gadget I might have to get.
