I was a Type 2 diabetic, but since I no longer manufacture any insulin, I have been reclassified as Type 1. After dealing with my diabetes for 12 years, I have grown so tired of the process. But I have found it easier to understand my highs and lows since I started using the OneTouch with the software. I can track my BG so closely now, and see where my problem spots are during the day. As importantly, when I review my readings every week (it only takes a few minutes) I can see where I have been lazy about checking my readings, and therefore managing my insulin. The software seems a little out of the early 90's, but it does work. Just wish they'd update it and make it MAC compliant!

With the cost of buying test strips, this cable seems way overpriced. Howeve, my biggest complaint is the outdated technology it uses and therefore how big and clunky it is. The One Touch software technology was designed before USB (RS-232 serial). Instead of creating new USB only meters, they just modified the old RS-232 to work.

The Bayer meters use standard USB cables that you can buy anywhere AND also fit your smartphone!

The One Touch software is also very much 1990's style. Not very polished, has a rather clunky user interface and really needs an overhaul!

I'd really like to find software that allowed better diet/calorie/carb records. This one only allows totals to be entered without much detail.

One Touch has worked out a deal with my insurance which offers a co-pay for strips that others (ie: Bayer) can't beat so I'm stuck.

As others have said, for what they make on strips, they should update the meters to use good old USB, update the software and give it away with each meter!

                            the interface cable does not work, called Drugstore.com for assistance, and all they could do was to refer me to the manufacturer. I bought the cable from Drugstore.com, drugstore.com should be able to replace the cable.

                            You would think after choosing the OneTouch brand, and many many years of using their expensive test strips at least 6 times a day, this cable would come as standard equipment with every meter. I was diagnosed in 1987 and like the OneTouch products but I will switch to another brand/maker in the future. It just seems in this day and age ALL meter makers should supply the management software and cable for FREE. The test strip is where the money is not a proprietary cable you charge so much for or the occasional free "if you qualify" meter. You want me to spend thousands on your strips each year then "I qualify" so the meter and cable to manage my diabetes should come all in a bundle for FREE. Shame on you OneTouch!

                            Drugstore.com is extrememly fast and I highly recommend if you are in need of anything on thier site and expect great, fast, and great customer service and follow up. I have them bookmarked on my computer for future needs.
