The blood glucose meter can read results "in just five seconds," transmitting the data to the One Drop iOS app [Direct Link] that users can download on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch. One Drop's lancing device has custom depth settings to provide the right amount of pressure on a user-by-user basis in order to draw "a perfect drop every time." To keep up on compatible test strips, users can subscribe to One Drop Premium for a monthly $39.95 fee.

With Apple's energetic and consistent focus on health, One Drop provides a premium product that not only meshes well with Apple's design sensibility, but aligns well with their desire to empower users to take control of their health.

Its new Chrome hardware connects to One Drop’s iOS, watchOS, and Android apps, and have full HealthKit and CareKit integration, allowing you to sync data from other health apps (e.g., CGMs, bluetooth meters, food & activity trackers) and share your data with your Care Team.

One Drop was one of four apps to launch with Apple's CareKit platform in 2016, including fertility tracker Glow Nurture, maternity app Glow Baby, and depression medication tracker Start. CareKit allows app developers to create integrated software that helps patients and doctors to better track and manage medical conditions.

On Apple.com, the One Drop Monitoring Kit is available for both store pickup and home shipping, with delivery dates listed as early as tomorrow, January 13. For more information on One Drop, check out the company's website here.

Personally I would rather they open up NFC to other developers so they can support CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitor) devices such as the Freestyle Libre, like Android already does.

As an iPhone user, I need to carry around a separate scanner device to scan the patch on my arm that constantly monitors my blood glucose. It's still way easier, less painful, and more informative than finger prick blood tests, but I really should be able to do it with my iPhone given Apple's focus on HealthKit. The shiny chrome design and bluetooth support of this thing can't hide that it's older tech now! :)
I could not agree more. I've been fortunate enough to use the Freestyle Libre for about 6 months now, and despite 20 years of diabetes type 1, ive never had better control. Its by far the best thing to happen to me and my diabetes, too bad Apple wont open up their NFC to allow me to control my blood glucose with my iphone. Currently i have to use a third party device, or an android phone - neither of which i really like...! Please apple please!!!

Pretty pricey though. iHealth's Smart Glucometer is only $30 up front, offers the same functionality, and 100 strips only cost $25. For this, you're just paying for fancy chrome and unbelievably pretentious-sounding "Vegan Leather".
