Well yes, it could be a huge improvement.  I'd like to see exactly what the software does.  However, I do think that the manufacturers and developers focus too much on the finger pricking aspect of things.  It really doesn't hurt and it doesn't bother me in the least.

However, it would be very good for T2s who cannot get their hands on the consumables.

What is the current status? When will it be available to order?GlucoWise™ is currently in development and will be available to purchase once clinical trials are completed. We expect to start taking pre-orders in late 2018.

I look forward to testing it then.

But I won't stop using lancets for testing in the meantime. Often these ads are actually seeking investors or trying to reassure those they already have and the actual device can be years away if it appears at all.
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

A far more useful invention would be a washable reusable test surface, doing away with the need for strips. Just a pipe dream...
