From Salem, Oregon, USA:

The last time anyone posted an answer about the glucometer watch was over a year ago. Do you have any more information about it? It sounds wonderful, but is it accurate enough to rely on it during sleep?


The GlucoWatch II is indeed as accurate as any other home blood glucose monitor and has a real role where there is a concern for nocturnal hypoglycemia as well as in other situations where there is a special need to monitor change such as during an illness or with a major change in regimen. However, it is a somewhat cumbersome device to use with its two hour equilibration period, and it is expensive. The GlucoWatch III will be significantly smaller.
