    Although they used a One Touch meter in the demo I don’t think this product will necessarily be limited to One Touch Ping users. The Ping uses RF (radio frequency) to communicate with the pump, and the iPhone only has bluetooth, so they will have to come out with a new meter that uses bluetooth. In the video, they just had the meter plugged in to the iPhone, so they haven’t even resolved the wireless communication bit yet.

    The I-pod Touch is the same thing as the I-Phone except it doesn’t have a camera and doesn’t make cell phone calls. It should be noted that almost all app’ss in the app store can be used on the I-Phone touch. It communicates wirelessly via bluetooth and also wifi. People don’t seem to realize that there is this option of just purchasing an I-pod touch.

    This is a good move from lifescan, however this is nothing new. This has already been done in the past. Therasense had a handspring module for the Visor that did glucose monitoring with the PDA. Also Accuchek have a Palm OS application (pocket compass) that does logbook and graph plotting from IR uploads from the meter (and accuchek pumps) to the handheld. Lifescan should make instead a 30pin ipod module that does glucose monitoring, and use the ipod as a meter.

    Will I be able to upload my readings to any tracking software or will it be proprietary. Thanksfully, it looks like I’m not the only one who finds all the diabetes apps useless with manual entry? Can’t the monitor manufacturers build in some hooks to the OS to allow us to upload readings to a wide variety of apps?

    Thanks for posting! This is exciting for a mom with a T1 kid. I’d love to get a text “automatically” from him with his reading so that I can make adjustments when he is at school or at a friends house. Think they can integrate the CGM info in there too? ;-) I agree with Engadget?s live-blog: ?A cool idea, but we?d like to see just a small dock connector that functions as the finger pricking device. Are we asking too much?? Seems like that would be easier for LifeScan to address…a meter that plugs into my iPhone.

    And how about integrating it into my pump? If I could test my blood sugar wit hthe meter, have it sent to the iPhone, input the carbs via the database on the iPhone and then send that to the pump, I could really get excited. That would be awesome!!

    There actually is a meter that is bluetooth enabled out there already. (www.Myglugohealth.net)This meter will work with any phone that has bluetooth and it sends your results to a website that logs all of your readings for you.

    Apparently, this isn’t actually a product, nor does it have any immediate prospect of being a product. It’s July now, 3.0 is out, yet no iPhone LifeScan app. A closer googling of the excitement back in March discloses an interview with LifeScan:

    “… not of a commercially imminent product …”
    “… there’s still some refinement that needs to take place …”
    “… Well, again, it’s still very early for us …”
    ” … That hasn’t been determined yet …” (how to share results with your doctor)

    Hype.

    I am wondering what type of food databse is install within the program. Does the program have ethnic food database? how responsive is the data and calcuation to a person’s height, weight change, sex, BMI, body type, etc…? How effective is it to historical data check, relationship and stress base? Does it also take into account of other health factors, high blood pressure, activity function, etc… please respond to my email.

    On year later and still no bluetooth meter from LifeScan that works with my iPhone.

    It would still be ideal if my meter was replaced witha small dock connector that acts as an adaptor between the iPhone and a test strip. Is the medical device industry so ingrained in 20th-century thinking that they cannot bring to market a device compatible with the iPhone?

    Will we have to wait for the feds to pass stronger meter accuracy requirements before the industry rethinks there crapy meters.
