LifeScan won FDA clearance for its OneTouch VerioSync Blood Glucose Monitoring System. Several iPhone connected blood glucose meters have been released over the last few years, but the VerioSync is the first glucometer to automatically send blood glucose results wirelessly via Bluetooth technology to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
On the iOS device, the accompanying OneTouch Reveal app captures the blood glucose readings and allows users to view and share results. In addition, it features a 14-day summary of blood sugar test results, simple visuals showing the percentage of test results within target range and provides email or text-based sharing.
The meter itself looks pretty modern and sleek and, unlike some others, the device does have its own display for viewing individual readings, so you don’t always have to have your phone at hand.
Although it is the first Bluetooth glucose meter to connect to iOS devices, it is certainly not the first Bluetooth glucometer. MyGlucoHealth has long provided a Bluetooth based glucose meter, but one that is compatible with a long list of phones that specifically excludes iOS devices. In addition, others have used Bluetooth for communication between glucose devices and soon we hope to see non-invasive glucose meters that connect wirelessly to your phone.
