The New Lifescan OneTouch UltraSmart
It came out and I ran to Fred Meyer to pick one up for myself. I'm talking about the new Blood Glucose Meter from Lifescan, the OneTouch UltraSmart. (Diabetics who are also geeks MUST have all the new toys)
If you wanted a review, here it is: The UltraSmart is the BEST meter I've ever used. Full Stop. I love it.
If you want more, read on. It combines everything that is good about the original One Touch Ultra with a very complete logbook. Also, thank goodness, it finally includes a backlight. I can't tell you how many times I've needed to check my blood sugar in the movies and have struggled with the non-backlit Ultra.
Here's all you need to know:
- Uses the same Ultra test strips you use now
- Results in 5 seconds
- Huge temperature range
- Blue "Indiglo" Backlight
- Graphs and trending data
- Logging of Exercise, Carbos, Hypos, etc
- Connects to OneTouch Software
