iHealth introduces smart glucose meter
iHealth, maker of a high-tech suite of data-crunching health trackers, has just added a new device to its impressive lineup: a wireless blood glucometer, giving diabetics an easier way to track their blood glucose on the go.
Though clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration is still pending, the California-based company announced its latest products, which also includes a wireless pulse oximeter, this week at CES in Las Vegas.
The new glucometer -- which earned a 2013 Innovation Award at CES -- will send data wirelessly to iHealth's new MyVitals app, which allows users to record up to 500 readings, track trends, schedule reminders, and track test strip expiration dates.
The company says the new device will be available toward the end of 2013, with no word yet available on pricing.
Other options for diabetics include the AgaMatrix Nugget, an iPhone glucose meter that allows users to view and analyze their blood glucose levels in real time. The VitaDock series includes a GlucoDock blood glucose meter for managing diabetes via an iOS device - AFP Relaxnews
