Default Meter Question

My insurance will pay for the OneTouch or the Accu-Chek. There are several types of each of these. Which meter do you prefer of these brands? Thanks.

I'm partial to the Accu-Chek Aviva, mostly because it's what I was given and what I've used. For the most part, it has been consistent.

I also like the Accu-Chek line. My personal favorite is the Nano, but I've heard good reviews about all of the Accu-Cheks.

My favorite is also the Accu-chek Aviva. It was the one the nurse gave me and has been very reliable. I check accuracy at each blood work draw and it is always very close, usually only 1 or 2 points off.
