As I just posted, I picked up an Aviva from my CDE today. I've used it a couple of times.
Frankly I like the case better than the Flash case, and switched my Flash over to it. I also like the Lancing device, and am using it. Even picked up a box of lancelets tonight and asked the CDE for a script. I have an email out to Medco to see if they are available.
Here's what I don't like about the Aviva: Right now, I cannot download the results. Thus it isn't happening. I know for a fact that I am not going to record blood sugar readings, I'm too hooked on downloading.
I wish it and the Palm Pilot would communicate but they have removed the Pocket Compass software from sale according to their 1-800 number. Let's face it, right now, the Palm OS is in big question right now.
Roche's own software doesn't work with the meter right now. I will be right up front with everyone. I test 8-10 times a day, and I'm not buying any more blood glucose software. If you want me to use your meter, you better give me free software.
EzManager doesn't work with it either, but I'm confident that that will be fixed shortly.
It is larger than the Flash and it doesn't have a backlight. Those are both Flash features I love. The test strips are larger.
However, I do like the new lancing device. It is taking some getting used to but with my history of infections, I think reusing lancing devices is not a good idea.
