    I was about to dump my Verio and go back to my one-touch because of the recharging pain – but with the upcoming sync capabilities, I’m rethinking.

    Anyone tried recharging a meter/cgm/pump using one of those solar rechargers?

    The BG5 looks interesting, however it is not useful to anyone unless they have a private income due to the fact there is no Insurance coverage for the test strips yet.

    I’ve been using the Sync for a few weeks now after using the IQ for quite some time. I’m not going
    to point out the positive aspects, just the issue I have run into.
    The app: my biggest complaint is that I cannot enter two digits after the decimal when entering a
    dosage. If I enter 7.05, it makes it 7.1. Other apps allow that, so why doesn’t this one? As a
    pumper, I use one type of insulin only, but the app makes me select Rapid instead of selecting it
    automatically. I even have “Pumper” in the About Me section selected. Exporting all the data from
    the app is impossible, so you have to connect the meter to a PC with the software from Lifescan
    and the proper meter driver.
    The meter: the moment you touch blood to the strip, it starts testing. If you didn’t get enough
    blood on there quickly enough, be prepared to test again since you will get an error message. I
    have discovered that the accuracy is suspect and find myself doing a second test and sometimes
    checking with another meter. I was having a low blood sugar and tested on the Sync, which
    showed my a result of 100. I knew it was wrong. I testing with another meter and got 65. I test
    with the Sync and then got 64. If I followed the first test, I would have gotten lower before treating.
    I shouldn’t have to use twice as many strips.
    Bottom line? I’ll be getting rid of the Sync and either return to the IQ or a different brand. I used to
    use OneTouch meters before without issues like this. I guess newer technology does not translate
    to better accuracy.
