Wavesense Jazz meter
A nifty little number, the Wavesense Jazz meter now comes in a wireless version with its own app. You can use the AgaMatrix Diabetes Manager App to track health-related data, including glucose results, carbohydrates, insulin dosage and even your weight, should you wish. You can also tag your glucose, insulin, or carb entries with the associated meal time. Or add a custom note to yourself so you can better understand your data when reviewing it later.
The WaveSense Jazz Wireless
There is a timeline view in the app that helps you to spot trends, the more you track, the more you can visualize trends. You can view data over the course of a day, week, or month in the Timeline. The Logbook (a horizontal view) provides a convenient, traditional format for reviewing glucose readings. Glucose readings are organised by time of day and meal tag. Colour coding makes it easy to identify highs and lows. The WaveSense Jazz Wireless can also send an automatic push notification to a carer (as long as permission by the testing patient is given). This means that every time the patient tests, an alert with details of the blood glucose reading will be sent as a notification and then stored in the recipients phone app.
A pre-formatted email can be sent direct from your phone and includes your colour-coded glucose logbook as well as statistics for insulin, carbs and weight. To sync your Wavesense Jazz Wireless meter you will first need to pair your device to your smartphone, once done, new tests take seconds to transmit and populate the app with your blood test results and notes.
