When looking at the information provided at CWD, the UltraSmart reminds me
a lot of the AccuCheck Complete which basically did all the same things:
provided graphs, log sheets, etc. It just took a long time for bg readings
and was a bit more difficult to enter additional info to (possibly). So,
this looks, to me, like LifeScan's improvement on the Complete.
One problem I have had with all the downloading and automatic built in log
sheets is that, with my schedule, I never eat lunch, or any meal, at the
same time. It might be noon today, 3 pm tomorrow. All the meters and
software I've tried so far require you to set time periods for lunch,
etc. This never works for me since, with the above example, pre-lunch
would be at noon, and post lunch would be 2-3 pm. The next day would be
pre-lunch 3 pm. with post lunch being somewhere around 5 pm. This just
throws all the logsheets off so badly requiring so much "fixing" (I can't
use any software that doesn't allow of manually entering information for
this reason) that to me, it's so much easier to just use paper and pencil
when doing logsheets. Does any software allow for more flexibility?
