    Sounds awesome! Maybe this one will actually get to the market.

    Seriously - that's a big "if". I went to the website and their other product - a vital sign monitor sells for 600 euros. The Bg monitor is on pre-order. No price yet, but I imagine it would be comparable or more. Probably cheaper for insurance companies in the long run, but a bit too pricey for me to find a European friend to buy one for me to try it out.

    It would be so great...but it would have to get WAY smaller for people to carry around with them! ;)

    Hmm, reminds me of the Glucowatch (look it up). We were so hopeful that the noninvasive watch would be the answer. It had very limited success.

    And, I agree that this is not a device one could carry around.

    It is a little bulky for a pants pocket, but not that much larger than an entire kit (poker, strips, meter). Probably less of an issue for women - it'd fit in my purse no problem.

    Did you watch the YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3gXVA2WN9A

    I was procrastinating this morning waiting for a conference call to start and watched it.

    I think insurance would jump all over it even at $1,000 - think of the savings off of strips over just the course of one year, but is it accurate? And it looks like it takes about 30 seconds to get a reading - not ideal for a squirmy toddler.
