Re: [IP] New Meter Trial
Thanks for the update. It sounds like you are happy with the meter's
I have been using this meter for about the same length of time as you and
share your opinion that this is a very useful tool. I am optimistic that
the software "add ons" will add even more to its inherent value.
Re: The number of test "results" which can be stored in memory ....
It's my understanding that the meter can store up to 1000 "events". An
event is defined as a diary entry, an "event marker" or some other
notation. This makes sense to me, since the meter obviously has a fixed
amount of memory. Since each BG test will let you enter up to 4 event
markers, even with this "limited memory", the meter compares well to the
Profile, which holds up to 250 results (the Complete could hold 250 test
results with 4 event markers each). In addition, scrolling through test
results and averages is *much* easier with the Complete.
I mentioned to someone else that the meter comes with a coupon for up to an
$85 rebate (sales slip plus trade in your old meter). This can help reduce
the estimated cost considerably.
