    I have the Novo Pen Echo as a back up to my insulin pump.
    It seems to be a robust reusable pen that dispenses half units and records the dose to remind you when it was taken..
    I use it rarely and the battery for the memory has expired after about 5 years. Apart from that, I have no problems.

    Hi there,

    Great robust reusable pen.. Never lets me down. (Though I do have a fair few spares.) carried in all scenarios. Work, leisure, whatever..

    They have come a long way since the early Novopens in the late 1980s. Lol, had a ballet dancer sit on one of the early models.
    Long story college. Put my stuff on a chair next to me?
    Didn’t do it any favours.

    If I remember right. You model has Bluetooth?

    Mine has the previous dose memory which is useful. But I tend to log any data manually shared on an app with carbs & BGs cross IOS & Android platforms..
