Connect meter to mySugr® app

The Accu-Chek Instant meter can only pair and synchronise data with one Bluetooth enabled device at a time. Once the meter has been paired, pairing with a new device will overwrite the original pairing.

iOS users can pair a maximum of three blood glucose meters. Android devices allow a maximum of one meter to pair.

Can I retrieve my data when I reinstall the mySugr app in the new smartphone? When you create your mySugr account, your data is stored with that account in a secure and compliant manner. If you change mobile devices or have to re-install the mySugr app, pair your meter to the app. Data synchronisation with the app happens automatically as soon as the app has connection to the internet, users don’t have to do manual backups.

The meters can transfer results using Bluetooth Low Energy to compatible smartphone apps like mySugr. Additionally, the micro-USB can be used with compatible diabetes management solutions such as the Accu-Chek Smart Pix device and the Accu-Chek Smart Pix software.
