    I used many meters
    I recommend: Accu Chek Performa and even better Accu Chek Guide.
    I do not recommend: OneTouch Ultra

    I have just purchased a Lifesmart blue tooth meter here in Australia.

    It is as accurate when compared with my Freedom lite readings, and the strips are subsidised by the NDSS (code 312) as well.

    Comes in a reasonable carry case. although the lancing device is medievil and went into the bin.

    The android LifeSmart Sugar Cheq app is good with some great features and works well with my Samsung phone, imports the readings from the meter in seconds

    I have the Accuchek Mobile and have recely been given the Bluetooth Sensor that plugs directly into the side of the unit...This works with the MySugr app which is recommended by the NHS for recording and managing your BG readings

    I am in the US, but I use the Accu Check Guide Me and the mySugr app. My meter has Bluetooth capabilities. I also use a Diathrive meter, as I am in the middle of doing come comparison testing.

    I have just tested myself with 2 different machines and got different readings. I think should just go by 1 and hope it's right

    I am in the USA and use the freestyle lite Meter and test strips. It's absolutely great. My results are always the same as when I visit my doctor. The meter has a large display with easy to read data and buttons that are easy to push without making mistakes.
