Actually, they had a booth at the TCYOD conference I went to last week. I stopped and talked with them. They have a net enabled meter, but I was underwhelmed by the features. You can share the data with family or with your doctors, but presumably you could do that in various ways with existing meters. They appear to support a wide range of immediate feedback based on your blood sugar readings, but I was hard pressed to understand what use it was. I really don't want to take a blood sugar reading and have the thing tell me to lay off the krispy kremes.
When I asked about whether it connected with existing apps or would help me compute proper carb or correction boluses, the rep said that they had trouble getting such an app approved by the FDA.
So I am left a little underwhelmed. It is just as accurate as any other meter. It rapidly loads your readings to the cloud, but only I need my readings right now. If I want to give my readings to my dr, he can download my meter or I can download it and give it to him. I just don't see the point.
ps. And I don't think my insurance would cover it, so it would be mighty expensive.
