How do the meter reminders work?
You can set up to 8 alarm clock reminders per day—for blood glucose checks, injections, or other events—as well as automatic reminders after high or low blood glucose results, or after certain meals. You can also set reminders for appointments on specific days. At the scheduled time, the meter turns on and displays the reminder, along with a sound or vibration, if a test strip has not been inserted. If the meter is already on and no blood glucose test has been performed, the reminder is displayed when the meter powers down.
Can I silence the meter reminder if needed?
Yes. You can choose to set the meter to sound or vibrate mode within the meter settings.
