For anyone else out there who has lost or broken their Animas Ping meter... I called Animas today, and got the full scoop.
They DO offer a 1 time replacement meter free of charge. Obviously I ordered mine today and am very excited to get it.
After the one time replacement they do charge 199.00 for each additional meter you have to replace.
That said, I plan to keep my meter AT HOME from now on, or at the very least not at the soccer fields where it was lost last time.
Hopefully that clears it up for some of you.
Good to know!
