We’re excited for the new CONTOUR® NEXT ONE blood glucose monitoring system . My daughter already uses the CONTOUR® NEXT Link meter that sends her blood sugars to her insulin pump. The CONTOUR® NEXT ONE meter will now send her blood sugars to our phone via the CONTOUR® DIABETES App. My daughter will be able to see her blood sugar results in a graph so we can see trends throughout the day and make any adjustments to her insulin ratios at meals or background insulin.
It’s also really cool how the CONTOUR® DIABETES App works with smartphones. The system features an easy-to-use wireless-enabled smart meter that links to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The App then collects, stores and analyzes patient blood glucose readings from the meter. Most people should be able to take advantage of this great feature. The new system will simplify diabetes management and help make it easier for more people with diabetes to use their smartphone to manage their condition. What’s even better is that the CONTOUR® NEXT ONE is one of the most accurate systems to date from Ascensia Diabetes Care.
The CONTOUR® NEXT ONE blood glucose monitoring system is great; however it doesn’t connect with my daughter’s pump. That’s the one thing we really like about our current CONTOUR® NEXT Link meter since it automatically inputs her BG values.
For those that aren’t on the pump The CONTOUR® NEXT ONE blood glucose monitoring system is an easy-to-use resource that will help make living with diabetes so much simpler.

On December 29, Ascensia Diabetes Care announced the approval of the CONTOUR® NEXT ONE blood glucose monitoring system in Canada, one of the next steps in the evolution of self-monitoring of blood glucose.
As part of the system, the CONTOUR® NEXT ONE meter and CONTOUR® DIABETES App seamlessly connect to allow the app to capture the meter’s remarkably accurate blood glucose readings.
The system features an easy-to-use wireless-enabled smart meter that links to a smartphone via Bluetooth™. The CONTOUR® NEXT ONE meter connects to the CONTOUR®
DIABETES App, a mobile app that collects, stores and analyzes patient blood glucose readings from the meter. The app combines these with other data input by the patient to provide detailed information about their condition that can help them understand how their daily activities may impact their blood glucose results, including alerts for critical high or critical low readings. The blood glucose measurements and patterns that are identified can also be shared with healthcare professionals to help support management plans.
Not only does the CONTOUR® NEXT ONE system simplify diabetes management and help make it easier for more people with diabetes to use their smartphone to manage their condition, it has also been demonstrated to be one of the most accurate systems to date provided by Ascensia Diabetes Care.
“At Ascensia Diabetes Care we are dedicated to helping improve the lives of people with diabetes. The launch of the CONTOUR® NEXT ONE blood glucose monitoring system is the latest of our high quality solutions to meet the needs of the diabetes community,” explained Russ Newsome, Region Head of North America, Ascensia Diabetes Care. “The value for both patients and healthcare professionals in having easy access to highly accurate data that tracks their condition over time could be significant,” he added. Published study data has shown the CONTOUR® NEXT ONE meter to be remarkably accurate. Canadian industry standards for blood glucose meters have an acceptable error range of 15%1 from lab readings. That means that readings on a meter can be 15% higher or lower, compared to the lab. CONTOUR® NEXT ONE meter results go beyond the industry standards, by coming within 8.4% of a lab reading.
The CONTOUR® DIABETES App presents blood glucose readings in a simple, intuitive and easy-to-review way, which may help improve a patient’s engagement with and
understanding of their results. The system is also designed to evolve in the future, bringing new capabilities and features to help people with diabetes manage their condition.
