Ratings and Reviews
Great on iPhone. Impossible on iPad
Installed on iPad over a year ago. Always had problems with Bluetooth connection. Now it just stopped working altogether. Uninstalled and downloaded again. Now it doesn’t sync with cloud so absolutely useless. Conversely the iPhone app works fine. Wave meter vaguely in direction of phone and It updates immediately. Why can one work perfectly and the other fail to function?
*** Update. Have finally sorted this out, not from Ascensia but from diabetes Forum. My problems have arisen because I bought a new iPhone and paired meter to iPhone. When I repeatedly tried to pair again with my iPad (because it’s bigger and I can read it better!) it wouldn’t pair, as it was pairing with iPhone continually. SO, turn off iPhone altogether, now pair with iPad and hey presto, it works, and 7 months of readings miraculously appear on my iPad. PLEASE PLEASE can you make this clear to users that have both iPhone and iPad?

Hi there jacksmeadow! We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with the app. Please contact our Support Team at 0345 600 6030 so that we can help to resolve this issue.
This pair of the glucose tester (BG meter) has been a big improvement from the digital LCD meters I have been using. The meter/tester is basically an iPhone sensor this explains its simplicity. The app provides ample functionality but is limited and confined. It would’ve extended its reach exponentially if only it opened itself to other applications e.g. Apple’s native Health app and other Diabetes apps, which I don’t quite get because their main business is the meter the app is a compliment. The more apps that can access the contour app data the more people would get the meter to use with their preferred applications. I sincerely hope Contour App is going to open its doors in the immediate future. One thing I would like to mention though it has nothing to do with the app, the microlet lancets are very well made and are extremely sharp this equates to little or no pain.
I switched to this system believing it would streamline my data management. The reality is it that it’s an unreliable mess.
Firstly even if the app is open in the background, there’s only a 50% chance that the meter will actually connect to it on taking a blood sample, meaning I have to manually open the app. If I’m doing this then I may as well just punch in my data by hand.
Secondly, although it allegedly writes data to Apple Health, it only seems to do so if the wind direction is just right and I stand on one leg with my right hand on my head.
Visually the app is also very ugly when blown up onto an iPhone 8 Plus. The fact that this was never updated to cater for the larger screened phones should be all anyone needs to know regarding the level of developer support.
Sadly I’m beginning to think that this system is an exercise in data mining, and will likely be uninstalling and deleting my account. The Next One meter is very nice though.
