    Thank you for this weeks update on the two meters – but I still ask – why would an IDDM vs a NIDDM purchase / use a monitor, bluetooth or not that only records blood glucose – that is like stepping back in time to the beginning of home glucose monitoring. I guess the manufacturing companies are concentrating on Type2 diabetics [larger population than Type1] that test much less frequently,don’t record insulin changes, and have less insurance support for these devices….? Or the other possibility is the telecommunications companies are buying out the firms making glucose monitors. I suppose what I’m looking for is a ‘health tablet’ – size of a small smartphone -to function as a monitor & to keep all health data and as well – private / in one place [ the pocket]/ but allowing encrypted wireless data transfer at will. The future?

    I bought the Sync. I hate the Sync. Here’s why:
    It’s 2014 and this glucometer acts like 1999 in the important way: Yes, I can use Bluetooth to sync with my iPhone(Sorry, Android, Blackberry & Windows Phone users…iOS only). BUT… And here it comes
    1) I can only save 14 days worth of sync results to the phone
    2) Sync can’t connect to my PC (or a Mac)
    3) I can export from my iPhone, but only as a screenshot, not actual data
    4) No reports, none. Zip. Nada.

    Folks, managing diabetes in 2014 is all about the data and this glucometer isn’t worth the cost of the strips.
