Contour Meter

Brand Names: Bayer

The Contour blood glucose meter by Bayer codes automatically the when you put in the test strip so you don't have to worry about coding the meter each time you use a new bottle of strips. With underfill detection, the meter ensures that enough blood is used to perform each test successfully--avoiding costly wasting of test strips. Alternate site testing is available. It also has automatic control marking to eliminate the need to manually mark control tests. It produces results in 5 seconds and has a 480-test memory and is compatible with Bayer's Diabetes Management Software. This meter requires Contour Test Strips, but Ascensia MICROFIL strips can also be used.

Pros: Great meter, easy to use, accurate

Cons: No cons

Overall: My health care agency give diabetics a new meter every year. They gave me this brand for several years. I found it accurate, easy to use and is programed so the user can record why the reading is what it is.

COuld have a better lancing device

Pros: - professional sturdy meter - cheap test strips

Cons: - horrible SLOPPY bag design - lancet needles is a pain because of disposable reasons ALSO HURTS WHEN PRICKING EVEN WHEN ITS ON THE LOWEST DEPTH

Overall: Maybe its that i am newly diagnosed too and not really used to the pricking as everyone else but i found the lancets to be a major pain and more time consuming to use. i perfer one like the accu chek fastclik built in 6 drum lancets. fast and painless.
