Comment:
I have used Accu-Chek Aviva meter since it came out, In fact, I have used Accu-Chek meters for more than 10 years. I test 4 times per day. You cannot find a better or more convenient meter to use. As shown above, the strips are expensive but no more so than the other brand name meters. This meter is rated the best by Consumer Reports and it truly deserves that rating. I know you will be happy with it. I was shocked that one person rated the accuracy as bad. The only way that could be was that there was something wrong with the meter. Accu-chek would have gladly replaced the meter for free.

Comes in a compact bag that holds the meter, test strip, and 4-5 safety needles. Very easy too use and when compared to the doctors test its pretty much spot on.

Comment:
I test twice a day religiousy and keep a chart on all reading. This meter is very consistent is its readings. My Bayer Contour and Free Style Lite would have some wild fluctuations from time to time. I would test get a high reading and immediately test again and get a reading than could be 20-40 points different. This doesn't happen with Accu-Chek Aviva.<br />It is very consistent and that is crucial to me if I want to control my diabetes. Love it.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
