As if having to prick your finger on a daily basis to test your blood sugar wasn’t enough, to properly manage your diabetes you also need to double as an accountant or a bookkeeper to monitor your results over time. Thankfully companies like Bayer are aware that it’s not always the easiest thing to stay on top of, so they’ve created the Contour USB Meter which looks like your standard blood sugar tester, except for the addition of a USB connector on one end.
The Contour is able to store 2,000 results, organized and displayed on the color screen by the exact date and time they were recorded, but when it gets full, or at any time actually, you can upload them to Bayer’s Glucofacts Deluxe diabetes management software which provides provides numerous ways to analyze, sort and view the data. While the meter usually sells for about $75 including 25 test strips, it looks like Walgreens has it on sale for just $39.99 right now.
