Re: [IPk] GlucoWatch



I mean exactly that- NO AUTOSENSORS ARE CURRENTLY AVAIALBLE !!!
There is some story about a batch being recalled but I beleive there are
some operational difficulties regarding supplies due to false readings- not
very encouraging really and vert frustrating as I have paid #250 for my
watch which is idle.
