Design flaws 3/5
1. Lacks a facility to calculate insulin requirements based upon current reading and expected carb intake.
2. Lacks the ability to record insulin injected and carbs consumed.
3. Lancing device is a wimp. It does not deal with fingers callused by many years of testing.
4. Lacks a place to store used strips until I'm somewhere near a wastebasket.
5. Needs to recognize that MediCare pays for the strips for many of us. The touted convenience does not justify the cost of the strips, especially in light of the flaws cited above.
Summary--great idea, but not there yet.
Love this!! 5/5
This is the easiest test kit I’ve used. The tracking on the phones so helpful and keeping the kit in my pocket is the bomb!
I love it just wish there was a spot to store extra needles
Excellent app and machine 5/5
By Thinking voter
I bought this just to be aware of my readings and find it to be affordable and easy. Highly recommend it.
Needs some more features 3/5
So far I like the system, but I wish it had a better way to track medication. I’d like to be able to put in an entry of when I take my medication so I can correlate that to readings. Also it would be nice to have more choices when testing other than pre/post meals & bedtime.
Dario Diabetic Meter 5/5
App is pretty easy to use. Directions ans detailed drawings very easy to follow. My only complaint is that my blood sugar value is way off with the meter. I tested with my old meter and with the Dario and Dario is about 60 points higher. Tried four times and same results each time. Ease of use 5 stars
M Roberts 5/5
Love it! Easy way to keep track.
Love this app! 5/5
This app is easy and convenient, I can check my sugar levels anywhere and anytime. It’s so easy to keep track and show my doctors. I highly recommend this app!
This is a great app and the device is great too. I do wish there was one of the in 2004 when I was first diagnosed with diabetes but I have one now and I will is it daily. It is worth the price i payed for it. Thank you very much and have Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Good at first, disappointed now. 2/5
By Mr. Generic
I liked this app and the accompanying device at first. It was more compact than my regular kit so it was great for travel.
The last two trips have been a different story. On this trip I can’t even get the app to open or the device to register and read the tests. Complete waste of time. The last thing I need is an unreliable device when I’m traveling.
Great customer service!!!! 5/5
So easy to use and the best customer service of any app I use !!
Easy, well organized system 5/5
I just started using Dario and am very impressed by how well it all works together. I love that it syncs between devices. I mostly use my iPad, but when I go to my doctors' offices, I have my iPhone, and the data is there, too, for reference. The reader seems very accurate and works great.
Too Complicated 1/5
By Darrien Ashoka
I have to change my phone case to one of those that doesn’t really protect your iPhone because the dongle plug is too long and the dongle itself is too wide. Once you start using it it isn’t any simpler or more convenient than the meter I used to plug in and download the data from. You still have bags and lancets and strips to keep track of, it’s just a more tidy compact package but you could come up with one yourself that works almost as well. The app itself isn’t any great shakes over others you can get, maybe a little more integrated but only if you buy into the whole gadget scheme: fitness tracker, carb counter, weight management, crap you can do on your phone already.
THE EASIEST EVER 5/5
This app, even if one uses it only for blood sugar and nothing else, yields a big plethora of information for one’s doctor. Yesterday, My doctor started asking questions I didn’t expect. I told him give me a minute and I pulled out my IPhone 7 which retrieves information from my husband’s IPhone 6 to be able to tell him my average blood sugar. Not only that it would show my Highest and lowest blood sugars over a span of time. He had never seen anyone use Dario. The next time I go, I plan to print out the information. He thought it was very easy to get the information he needed without having to calculate it himself. So I’m hooked. I can wait for the approval of the IPhone 7 adapter. What’s really nice is that I can have my account on two phones and that they’ll sync the information.
Love my Dario 5/5
Having my Dario makes everything with my diabetes easier. It’s convenient, accurate and economical. The Dario support team is absolutely amazing!!!!
You broke it 1/5
iPhone 7+ With the current version, the app no longer retains tags (including notes).
Without the ability to tag meals, fasting, skipped, etc, there not much advantage in using the Dario system.
Strips are more expensive, anyway.
Bad readings 1/5
The Dario is on avg 29 points lower than my Bayer Contour Next meter! The blood sugars level is just not accurate! Poor excuse for a meter
Can not use case on phone 1/5
By Eastern Oregon Rimrocker
With this product. So for me worthless as I have to have my iPhone protected😚 No information provided up front in that feature. A waste of my money. It’s only real value is in keeping track of your readings on the phone. Everything else remains the same. Much faster to just write it down than unpack phone per reading. Very disappointed.
Bad product 1/5
Results are inaccurate. This unit does not work with my 7plus. Contacted customer service and they have no date when it will. I have since moved on to the Accu-chec guide. Works great.
Control Got Easier 5/5
Love the Dario smart meter. I was never very good at checking my readings. First, I’d have to find the meter, then the lancets and finally the strips. I hate mess, so they were all stashed away - usually in 3 different places. With the Dario, everything is neatly contained in one small container. Plug it into your phone and you can check in seconds. I’m using it more often which gives me greater control. I’m ready to order another one to carry with me in my purse and keep the other one at home. I will not go back
Great App 5/5
I have been using Dario fo one year and love it. It is so easy checking my glucose level each meal and nobody is a an aware. All is self contained Ann my iPhone is my meter. FANTASTIC!!
System not compatible with iPhone 7 and above! 1/5
App may be fine but since it doesn't support iPhone 7 and above (lightning connector) - it's worthless...
Love this meter! 4/5
This meter is very easy to use. The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is because it doesn’t have an option for taking insulin by pill. But it keeps very good records.
Great product but wish it liked other fitness apps 5/5
Wish it linked to Fitbit and Garmin tracker data
When it works, it's great. 2/5
It's useless to me in colder weather because it won't read my blood sugar if my fingers are cold. As I lose weight, my fingers are cold frequently. You'd think though, that if I can easily get an adequate drop of blood, it would read it. But I get repeated errors until I give up.
Maybe this is Dario's way of making more money on extra strips. Despite the convenience, I guess I'll have to go with a different glucometer.
Liking the Dario 4/5
By Mammie P
The Dario is a nice way to keep track of my glucose readings, times I check my levels, and the amount of insulin I’m using. The only issue I have is that it averages the amount of insulin as well as my glucose levels over time. I use 24-30 units of insulin depending on my morning reading. It is not accurate when it averages my insulin over time intake.
I love the convenience of the Dario and how compact it is to carry around. I didn’t give it a 5 because I have found that my readings are higher than on my diabetic meter. also, the expense of the test strip is higher when I can get them for free through my diabetic carrier.
Difficult to cancel subscription 3/5
Not approved for iPhone 7 and above
Very pleased with Dario app 4/5
By Shirt & Tie
The app provides an very nice electronic method of recording and reporting not only glucose measurement. It also complied reports for all entries that you choose enter.
Manually entered measurements to help you manage your health.
The only thing that I wish it did better was interface better with other apps. That are commonly used for tracking various health related items.
I have been using my Dario for several months now and I wouldn't dream of switching to any other meter. In addition to the clever compact all in one meter, the app is easy to use and provides all the tools necessary to keep a healthy check on my blood sugars.
Love this system 4/5
I have been very impressed with the Dario System. I travel frequently and love the small size of the Dario set up as well the in-expense of the test strips. Compared to other blood glucose meters I’ve used I find it to be accurate with my blood sugar readings. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is, not having a solution to iPhone’s with only lightening ports. Since the change to my iPhone I really don’t use this system like I want/ used to.
By Pam's Pearls
Very poor. Wished I had checked on it before we ordered it.
Love my Dario 4/5
I love my new Dario. It's so easy and compact. The data will really help with control of my numbers. Thank you
Love my Dario! 5/5
I just love that my Dario is so portable and no more bulky pouches to carry around! Also very accurate and it's helped me manage my diabetes better by checking my levels more often! Overall a great product thank you Dario team!
Love the ease of use and the fact that it is so compact
So far so good... 4/5
Neat little meter and app combo. I do find myself checking my blood sugars more regularly, which is good. App is great for carb counting since that is how I take my insulin. Only minor complaint I have is that it doesn't track food calories, which is also important since I'm trying to stay below a certain amount to lose a few pounds—unless I'm just missing where that's listed with the food. Also don't like that the location part doesn't seem to track me at home and instead puts me at one of seven different addresses depending on what room I'm in. Otherwise, no complaints.
I love this glucose meter 5/5
I'm so glad I decided to try this glucometer. It's a wonderful, convenient way to test. The readings are accurate. I compared readings to my previous meter. I find I need much less blood for the Dario meter than my high end Pridogy meter, which I really liked. But the Dario beats Prodogy, hands down.
The customer service is outstanding. I am very impressed by their caring and personable manner.
This was such a smart buy, it is so convenient, compact and easy to use.. Most of us have our phones with us at all times..it is such a smart way to control you blood sugar and keep track of your intake and exercise throughout the day and be able to track your efforts over time.. also so convenient with visits with your PCP, just open the app and show them how your sugars have been and what you have done to help control them...
Sooo convenient ! 5/5
I love my Dario! It is convenient, easy to use and accurate. I love all the features included in the app. AND it's affordable. Before getting Dario I was using a generic brand to save on the cost of strips. The Dario strips are comparable in cost. I'm also happy with their auto ship program. Customer service was kind and helpful. Overall my experience has been GREAT!
Makes it Easy 5/5
By barb c
The Dario makes it easy to stay on top of my numbers. It is simple and quick to know where I stand, so I take my readings more often. Love the fact all the information I need is handy.
Love it 5/5
I love this system. From the actual hardware to this app software, they have thought of everything. Been having issues with keeping track of my levels and this solved the problem.
Hoe does the machine work 1/5
I have been using this product for about a month now. I find that it is very inaccurate. I can take my blood sugar four times in a row and each time I get a different ready, not just a few numbers off but like 10-30 points different. This can be very dangerous if you are taking insulin based on the number. Next you will ask did you do a quality check? Yes-
Definitely an upgrade to traditional blood meters 5/5
I love the compact nature of the Dario. And best of all, affordable test strips with no scrip.
As advertised 4/5
It does what it said it would do. Handy to keep on hand. Good to reference back on BG levels at different times of the day.
Only wish is that it would automatically pull up when inserting the reader.
Very happy with Dario 5/5
By Dario delivers
My doctor asked me to monitor my blood glucose level. I went to a store and bought a kit. Very challenging to use and I stopped using it. I then saw the Dario advertised on Facebook. I ordered it and I am thrilled with the ease of use and keeping my results on my iPhone. From the app I can send my results to my doctor. I am so impressed I purchased stock in the company that makes Dario.
App and Support 5/5
I am enjoying using the Dario to keep blood glucose data and have easy access. The support staff is excellent and quite helpful.
