Bayer announced a new meter with a built in USB plug. It looks kinda cool. Groovy color screen. Smallish. I like the idea of getting rid of cables particularly the proprietary ones.
With this and the game based meter* Bayer seems to be kicking up some meter innovation. I like that Bayer and WaveSense with their iPhone app** are getting outside the typical meter box.
On a side note: Bayer if you are listening I would love to see you guys all back at FFL.
From their press release:
There is a dedicated web page at: http://www.bayercontourusb.com/
Bayer Diabetes Care today announced U.S. Food & Drug Administration clearance to market the CONTOUR® USB blood glucose meter. Bayer’s CONTOUR USB is the first and only blood glucose monitor that plugs directly into a computer providing users with instant access to information that can help optimize diabetes management. The CONTOUR USB meter is integrated with Glucofacts™ DELUXE software for easy retrieval of data as well as longer-term tracking and analysis of blood glucose test results.
