What is the Contour® Next One?

The Contour® Next One is the ground-breaking blood glucose monitoring system from Contour®. It communicates wirelessly with the Contour® Diabetes smartphone app, so you can read and track your results in one easy to use system. The smartLIGHT™ feature makes interpreting your results easier than ever, as it glows different colours to show you whether your blood sugar is above, below, or within your target range. Always forget to monitor your blood glucose? The Contour® Diabetes App can ping reminders to your phone, so you’ll never miss another blood glucose result.


Which test strips can I use with the Contour® Next One?

The Contour® Next One meter should only be used with Contour® Next test strips. These test strips use Sip-In® sampling which makes it simple to test the right amount of blood at the first try. This combined with the Second-Chance™ sampling feature means you have 60 seconds to apply more blood to the test if you don’t get enough right away, making repeat finger pricking a thing of the past. Do not attempt to use any other test strips with this product, as it could make your results less accurate.


What’s in the box?

This product contains your new Contour® Next One meter and everything you need to begin using it right away:

  • Contour® Next One meter x 1
  • Contour® Next test strips x 10
  • Microlet® Next lancing device x 1
  • Coloured lancets x 10
  • Meter wallet
  • User guide
  • Quick Reference Guide


What is the smartLIGHT® feature?

The Contour® Next One has a unique smartLIGHT feature which will tell you if your blood glucose is within the target range at a glance. The blood glucose meter will read your results in just 5 seconds, with the smartLIGHT™ feature lighting up green, amber, or red, so you can figure out whether your blood glucose is on track in a flash. If you’re also using the Contour® Diabetes app, these results will be sent straight to your smartphone so you can track them in more detail.


What do the colours on the smartLIGHT® mean?

When you’re using your Contour® Next One, the monitoring system will light up red, yellow, or green, so you can see where your results lie at a glance.

  • Green – Your blood glucose is within the target range
  • Yellow – Your blood glucose is above the target range
  • Red – Your blood glucose is below the target range


How accurate is the Contour® Next One blood glucose testing meter?

The Contour® Next One blood glucose meter has been shown to be accurate to a remarkably accurate +/- 8.4%. This figure doesn’t just meet, but surpasses the industry standard, helping you to be sure that your results are accurate and reliable.


Can I use this meter for Alternative Site Testing (AST)?

The Contour® Next One system can be used for AST, specifically for taking samples from your hand. However, you should only do this if your doctor has recommended that AST is right for you and should not be used to calibrate your blood glucose monitoring device.


What is the Contour® Diabetes App?

The Contour® Diabetes App is the perfect companion to the Contour® Next One blood glucose monitoring system. It connects to the monitor via Bluetooth, sending your test results to your smartphone so you can track them easily. This can help you and your health care team notice patterns in your blood glucose levels and make changes accordingly. The app can also be used to set up reminders which may help you to test at the right times. You can use the Contour® Next One without the app if you wish to.


Is my phone compatible with the Contour® Diabetes App?

The Contour® Diabetes App works with most recent smartphones. If you’re using Apple devices, this app will work with any device that uses Apple iOS 8 and above. If you’re an Android user, this app will work with any device that uses Android Lollipop 5.0 and above. You can download the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store on your device. For a full list of compatible smartphones, please see the Contour website.

Does this always have to be connected to a phone in order for it to work? I would like to confirm if glucose readings can be recorded manually as I've read reviews mentioning connectivity issues on android phones.

By integrating your blood glucose (BG) meter with a smartphone app you can simplify the management of your diabetes. BG results captured throughout the day can be automatically synced and logged. And over time, your results may create meaningful insights into how your activities affect your BG levels, which can help improve your understanding of your diabetes. All the while being on the same platform you use for so many other aspects of your life – your smartphone!

Simple to use, the remarkably accurate CONTOUR®NEXT ONE smart meter and CONTOUR®DIABETES app seamlessly connect to capture all your BG readings and help you to manage your diabetes, smarter.

This smart system allows you to engage at the level that is right for you to manage your diabetes.

I have the 640g insulin pump and wanted to know if this meter works with my insulin pump?

Please call Ascensia Diabetes Care Support on 0345 600 6030 (Mon-Fri, 8.00am - 8.00pm) to assist you fully in this matter

Please can you confirm that the Contour Next One monitors you sell are configured to record in UK units of measurement i.e. mmol/L.

We are an authorised UK distributor and stockist of Contour meters by Ascensia and all meters we sell are only configured to UK mmmol/L

What lancets are compatible with the contour next one blood glucose monitor? Thanks

Microlet lancets are compatible

Could you tell me please, the Contour Next One you are selling, does it shows the results in mmol/L, or in mg/dL? I've seen so many British reviews, and half ot them says it is in mmol/L, and the another half is complaining about it is in mg/dL and it is not possible to change between the two things.

We are the solus UK distributor of the contour product range. The meters are programmed to measure and display mol/L which is the UK standard.

Within the USA they use a different reading and the meters aren’t comparable to the Uk ones.

Can I get the test strips and lancets on prescription please?

Yes, test strips and lancets available on NHS prescription. They are contour next test strips and microlet lancets

Excellent product - easy to use - quick with the results and features within the app very useful for monitoring glucose levels. Cheaper price than other online providers - would recommend as tried another make prior to this and I struggled to use it. Contour Next One is super easy to use.

This was my first Glucose Meter. I wanted to keep an eye on how my glucose was responding to food as there is a lot of diabetes in the family. Very easy to use and I love the accompanying app that stores all the readings. The display is very large and clear. Recommended!
