I’ve tried several different blood glucose meters … B|Braun Omnitest 3 (which I don’t think is sold in America), Caresens N, Accu-Chek Performa … and they were all basic in function and basically the same all around.
Then I got an Accu-Chek Instant, which is compatible with Accu-Chek’s “Accu-Chek Connect” smartphone app. And my whole world changed instantly!
Ok that’s a slight exaggeration. But I certainly liked the Accu-Chek Instant enough that I asked Accu-Chek if it would be possible to pair two of them to the same smartphone.
Naturally, their support rep was incredibly unhelpful, so I just decided FK IT I’LL DO IT LIVE!!!! Sorry. What I mean is, I decided to just buy a second Accu-Chek Instant and see what happens.
So that’s what I did. And it worked! Hooray. Now I can have one at home and one on my desk at work.
I was a bit concerned that pairing my second Accu-Chek Instant to the phone app would cause my first Accu-Chek to get forgotten, as if the app can only recognize one glucose meter at a time. But no, the app was able to add my second glucose meter without disowning the first.
I tested my blood sugar with one Accu-Chek Instant, synced it to the app, and then I did the same with the other. No problemo!
And for anyone wondering how to pair your Accu-Chek Instant blood glucose meter to your phone, here’s a handy video:
If your Accu-Chek blood sugar monitor goes by a different name (Accu-Chek Guide, for instance), I’m guessing that you will also be able to pair two of them to your phone. But that’s just a guess. Don’t get mad at me if you get two of them and your whole world turns to shit.
