Actually have you seen the Accu-Chek Mobile?
50 tests on a cartridge, 6 lancets to a drum..
OLED display and pre/post meal tagging..
Kinda reminds me of an updated Compact Plus..
Not avalible in the States of course
I have been using the mobile since the beginning and I loved it. 50 tests and no rubbish after testing. Great invention. As I am now using an Omnipod I switch to the meter on the PDM. The first thing I thought when I saw the PDM BG meter is WHY NOT PUT AN ACCU CHECK MOBILE IN THE PDM? That would make it a lot better. But it is not the case. I have to use teststrips again and have a sepperate finger pricker (ok an Accu-Chek FastClix). Now I have two AC mobiles and I am not using them anymore. But belief me it is the best BG meter I have had. And last year they improved it and it became even smaller.
Yes that was the only disadvantage of that meter. It's a bit bulky. But one at home and one in my business case it was never a problem. Maybe in the future a Omnipod PDM with a cassette BG meter.
Wow The Accu-Chek mobile went on a diet!... I think its smaller than the Compact Plus or at least a lot less bulky... Still no news of US avalibility but there is news of a codefree version of the Nano (with the new Aviva Plus strips), as well as FastClix, and signs of the Combo.. but no news on the Mobile...
It looks like one of the few A-C meters I can actually get into using.. Aviva has no backlight (wtf).. and Compact Plus uses way too much blood for a pump user.. its almost as much as a Lifescan product..
