I use the Aviva and like the small sample size, good size test strips and it's accuracy. However, I do not like the fact that there is very little you can do on the meter compared to other meters like the OneTouch UltraSmart and even the Ultra2.

You can't flag a reading as fasting, pre/post breakfast/lunch/dinner, before/after exercise, feeling weird, etc. Other than the 3 averages it gives, you can get very little statistical data from it.

I love the UltaSmart meter with all the cool and useful stuff you can do with it, especially using the strips in 3 different meters, but can't stand the Ultra test strips. Bigger sample size, flimsy, no time for a second fill if you underfil the first time, etc. Does anyone else who uses the Aviva feel the same way? Would anyone be interested in "petitioning" Accu-Chek to make a meter based on the Aviva but with more on board functions?
