Review: Accu-Chek 360 software

Well, well, well ... 

In reviews of the Accu-Chek meters, each review says that the Accu-Chek 360 software is not included with the meter. How wrong I am!

I reviewed the Accu-Chek Mobile meter and it is one must-have item in your diabetes kit. Not only is this one flexible, powerful, and accurate meter -- it comes from one of the most customer-support oriented companies I have ever dealt with. Roche Diagnostics (a division of Hoffmann-La Roche Limited) is based in Laval Quebec in Canada. Their customer support has been exceptional and outstanding every time I have ever needed to contact them. The support staff have no equals, they are by far the most informed and emphatic from any company, not just in the diabetic supplies market, but in any market.

On to the review: The Accu-Chek 360 software is not an extra or optional item, it is included in your meter. When you plug in the meter with the USB cable, the Accu-Chek 360 displays quite a few reports. The interface is minimalistic and absolutely perfect. It reports your blood glucose levels and tests so that it is easy to see trends on a graphical chart. That makes it simple to recognize the relationship between foods, exercise, and medication and how your blood glucose levels related to your target ranges.

There is a standard day report and a summary report. The day report units are hourly and the summary report displays both weekly and monthly views. 

Kudos to Accu-Chek and thanks for including these with the meters.

PS. I had initially missed that Accu-Chek 360 report software was included with the meter. My meter did not include a USB cable and I assumed (incorrectly) that the software was an optional and extra cost item. Accu-Chek is sending me out a USB cable and I expect to get it by mail any day now. Based on their phone call to advise me of this, I had a look at the meter and noted it is a micro plug. I used another USB cable that I had for my computer and accessed the Accu-Chek 360 report software on my Accu-Chek Mobile meter -- and was thoroughly pleased.
