A Glucose Meter For the Modern World

In his most recent appearance on FOX Business News, Walt talks about the Contour USB from Bayer, a new glucose meter for diabetics, but one with a modern touch. The tech-savvy Contour also serves as a USB drive, making it easier to track the user’s stats digitally [corrected from an earlier version of this post, which stated that the device automatically uploaded stats]. Bayer’s foray into the wired realm signals a broader move by the health industry to integrate better with the world of consumer electronics.

Walt’s full review of the device can be found here.
