    The screen is not like my iPhone but I find if you press it positively rather than jabbing it then it's ok.

    I noticed it when trying to set my Target Range. Up arrows were just not working.. Took about 7+ presses. All other parts of the touch screen work fine. Weird

    Sensor worry.
    My readings so far:

    14:37 4.9 finger prick
    14:48 2.6
    14:49 2.6
    15:03 0.1 ketones
    15:05 2.7
    15:16 2.7
    15:36 2.6
    15:52 2.4
    15:59 2.3
    16:02 4.7 finger prick
    16:30 2.5
    16:34 2.5
    17:07 2.8
    17:19 2.8
    17:47 3.2
    17:50 3.2
    18:15 2.9
    18:50 2.9
    19:13 2.9
    19:23 3.7 finger prick
    19:23 2.6
    19:24 4.2 Contour Next USB

    The low finger prick reading are due to not me consuming anything but black coffee since the slap up meal I had last night :wacky:

    Fits quite well in the case for a Freestyle Optium Neo - I might repurpose mine

    I bought a phone sock for mine.

    Keep getting tempted to put the sensor on tonight but had already decided I would start on Saturday morning, as I will always be at home on a Saturday morning so no problems on change over days.... It's hard to resist though!

    Just catching up with everyone's experiences today, it's showing I'm in a permanent hypo, levels won't go up above 3.9 - tried 2 other meters and they're both ranging between 5.2, and 6.4. Hopefully by tomorrow the sensor will have settled down.

    Hi

    I think i must be lucky as my libre has been with 1.0 of my accucheck mobile with 4 checks over the last 5 hrs concidring the time delay between blood and cell fluid and this being day one I hope it will get even closer.

    If the sensor can't be trusted on the first day then it'll be a strip day for me.
