PhoneBoy Speaks Ep 716: IHealth Glucometer

This podcast is my audio review of the Wireless Smart Glucometer Monitoring System from iHealth Labs. Here are the cliff notes:


  • Test strips are reasonably priced compared to what your insurance company charges you.
  • Syncs results to your iPhone over Bluetooth (iOS and Android).
  • Glicometer charges with USB cable.
  • The “eject test strip” button is a nice touch.
  • Integrates with HealthKit.


  • Do not like the included lancet system.
  • Requires scanning barcode on test strip bottle upon opening a new bottle of test strips (or changing bottles).
  • Does not come with control solution (needed to verdy accuracy of meter).
