Gluco Watch G Biographer

This device is worn on the forearm. Readings are taken through the skin, so there's no insertion of a needle. Readings are provided every ten minutes for up to 13 hours. Low and high blood glucose readings are marked by alarms. This meter is meant to detect trends and track patterns but not replace finger-stick testing. After a two-hour warm-up period, you calibrate the meter, which sounds an alarm if the reading is below a low-alert level or above a high-alert level set by the doctor. This meter stores more than 8,500 individual readings. Perspiration interferes with the readings. Redness, itching, and blisters may appear at the site of the device.
