So i went out and picked up the Contour USB meter. I am really into gadgets and this looked like something right up my alley. I really can't say much about it yet since it didn't come with any test strips and I have yet to get a new script for the Bayer brand strips. So maybe tomorrow, after I call the doctor's, I will have more to say. For now i can say that I love how it has a rechargeable battery, which can be charged by simply plugging it into the USB port. From what I can tell by looking it and the guide over it should be very simple to use. I am excited to get some strips so i can use it!
