Hi. I just got a Bayer Contour USB meter last week and I am liking it so far. It is so much smaller and faster than my old meter, and the lancing device is much easier on the fingers. Glad it's…Continue

I was loving the Contour USB 'Next' Link ... awesome in almost all respects. But the color screen just started to fail a couple of weeks ago! Called Bayer, and after 10 frustrating minutes talking to a woman who insisted on asking me many irrelevant questions, i finally said "I'm don't want to talk about this anymore ... the screen is failing, i want a replacement meter, can you do that." She spoke to a supervisor, and said 'yes' it'll take up to 4 days and need to send the original back to them. And then it arrived in only 1 or 2 days. Yayyy.

Ok contour next link users I really need your help!! I am having difficulty with my blood meter and I am in shock at how this happened. I have been on the technical support line with Bayer all evening and they are sending me a new link because coincidentally while I was on the phone with Medtronic trying to link the results to my computer the thing just went black. Now the computer won't let me charge and the wall plug in doesnt work either. I am so frustrated I could cry. What blood meter do you guys use that you find is most accurate? I was really loving this meter until now and will have to go to bed without a reading I can trust. The one i have now for a backup is off the charts never giving me accurate readings. I am going to have to switch if this thing keeps acting up. What would anyone suggest? I am a little worried.

Question on using multiple meters: I have two Next USB meters. When I connect to my Mac, it transfers data and then generates reports. Is there a way to combine data from the two meters? I haven't called Bayer support; trying to find a way to do this by myself. Not having too much success, though.

My wife has the Next Link, which she uses with her pump. I have the Next USB - not pump. Both use the same strips, which are different from the older USB meter. As an aside, I connect the Next USB on my Macs - the level of detail is amazing. Haven't tried to add a note, other than to select Fasting, Before Meal, or After Meal.

Next is Next... Bayer also has a cute OLED based meter as well as the Next USB and Next Link...(Its just called Contour Next... NOT EZ)

Hello everyone, does anyone know if the contour Next USB meter uses the same strips as the Contour next link USB meter that we are getting from minimed? I need three meters and they all have to use the same strips. I think I have arranged two of the next link's so I am looking for that third one. The contour Next USB meter looks like it might work, so long as the test strips are compatible.

thanks for any information.

Rick

I got my new case after registering,took a week. I also love that I do not have to use a log book. I have had no major issues with software. the bright screen is helpful for my low vision. Nancy
