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.
The meter is compatible with all Accu-Chek data management tools, including the Accu-Chek 360° diabetes management system, the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device reader and software, and the Accu-Chek Connect diabetes management system.
Your meter comes with the batteries already installed and a preset time and date. You may need to change the time to match your time zone or, if you live in an area that observes daylight saving time, to reflect the time change. You can also choose to have the time set in 12hr or 24hr format.
To change the time:
From the main menu, select Settings and press the enter key.
Select Time/Date and press the enter key.
Select the Time entry field and press the enter key.
Set the Hour and press the enter key.
Set the Minutes and press the enter key.
If Time Format is 12 hr, select am or pm and press the enter key.
To save the changes and return to the Settings Menu screen, select Save.
Changing the date is a similar process. Simply select the Date entry field in step 3 and set the day, month and year.
