How does the Contour® Next One work?


The Contour® Next One works by reading your blood glucose levels after you’ve applied a small blood sample to the testing strip.


Your blood reacts with chemicals in the strip, which tells the meter what’s going on with your blood glucose.


It completes this reading instantly, lighting up and showing you your readings clearly on the meter’s screen.


At the same time, your Contour® Next One meter pings a message to the Contour® Diabetes App on your smartphone, so it can mark your progress in a simple graph and help you to work out what helps you to stay within your blood glucose target range.


Need to know how to use your Contour® Next One? We’ve written a handy guide about how to get to grips with this fantastic device, so you can start testing right away.



Which blood glucose test strips work with the Contour® Next One?


The Contour® Next One works with Contour® Next blood glucose testing strips.


These clever little test strips have a few unique features that make them the ideal partner for the Contour® Next One meter.


For starters, their Sip-In Sampling feature means that these test strips will absorb blood easily, helping you to get the right amount for your test from the first try.


Even if the first try doesn’t happen for you, no need to worry about pricking your finger again and again to get your sample.


Contour® Next test strips use Second-Chance® sampling, which gives you 60 seconds to apply more blood to the test strip and complete your reading without another finger prick!

What do the colours of the smartLIGHT® on the meter mean?


The smartLIGHT® on your Contour® Next One will light up the second your test is complete, giving you instant feedback on your reading.


The light will change colour depending on where your reading lies within your target range.


It works like a traffic light, red, amber, and green, here’s what they stand for:


  • Green light: You’re within your target blood glucose range
  • Amber light: You’re above your target range
  • Red light: You’re below your target range


Pretty simple, right? When you see these lights, you can make an instant decision about what to do next, helping you to make smart decisions about your blood glucose and how you manage it.



What does the Contour® Diabetes App do?


The Contour® Diabetes App connects wirelessly to your Contour® Next One blood glucose meter, recording your readings so you can see them easily, whenever you need to.


Download this app to your smartphone and it’ll send you helpful notifications that will help you to track trends in your blood glucose levels and even remind you when to test.


You can use this app to record your diet, carb intake, insulin doses, and many factors that can affect your blood glucose, and can attach notes, photos, and voice memos to each reading.


This app can even give you an easy to read report of your readings, so you can share it with your doctor and use it to make a plan together, helping both of you to get a clear view of your readings and what they mean for you.
