Comments about OneTouch Verio IQ Blood Glucose Monitoring System, 1 ea:
Despite the sleek, "techie" design, this meter leaves much to be desired. Having a rechargeable meter is nice, but the charge only lasts a few days, whereas batteries in other meters may last one year or more.For all the secondary functions, most diabetics will only use their meter to check their blood glucose at the time of testing. One Touch could have put more effort into perfecting that instead of adding other unnecessary features that NEVER used. I have gotten more "error" messages on this meter in the four months I have been using it than on all the meters I have used in the 22 years I have been diabetic combined. The lancet device on this used individual lancets, rather than a multi-lancet system which I had thought was something that ended with the 20th century. If you have a choice, buy the Accucheck meter. Unfortunately, the One Touch is the only one my insurance covers supplies for, so I am stuck with it.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
