What data can my healthcare provider see on the Accu-Chek Connect online portal?
You determine what types of information your healthcare team can access over the portal.

How does the data transfer work with the new meter?
The meters can transfer results using BLE to the Accu‑Chek Connect app on a compatible smart phone (which can be synchronized with the Accu‑Chek Connect Online system). Additionally, using the micro-USB, the meter is compatible to the following DM solutions: the Accu‑Chek Connect Online system, the Accu‑Chek® Smart Pix device (version 2.2), the Accu‑Chek Smart Pix software (version 2.2), and the Accu‑Chek® 360° diabetes management system (version 2.3.x).
Does the Accu Chek Guide meter have WiFi or near field communication (NFC)?
No. There is no WiFi or NFC connectivity with the meter. However, the Accu‑Chek Guide meter connects to the Accu‑Chek Connect app on the PwD’s smartphone via BLE. The PwD may then choose to transfer data or reports via multiple connectivity options via the app including email, text message, and automatic upload into the Accu‑Chek Connect Online system.
Can the meter synchronize with more than one mobile device, such as a smartphone and a tablet? Will I have duplicate results?
Results can transfer from an Accu‑Chek Guide meter into the app on both smartphones and tablets (up to 5 devices per meter). The app will synchronize data with the web portal without duplicating results. The mobile devices will not synchronize with each other but with the registered Accu‑Chek Connect Online account. It is recommended to use only one mobile device if using the Accu‑Chek Bolus Advisor.
How close do the meter and mobile device have to be for data to transfer wirelessly from the BG meter to the app?
The meter and mobile device must be within 3 meters for the automatic data transfer to occur. If the distance between the devices exceeds 3 meters during BG test(s), any new meter data will synchronize with the app when the devices are within range.
Does the Accu Chek Guide meter use the same Bluetooth protocol as the Accu Chek Connect meter?
Both devices are Continua certified, with the Accu‑Chek Guide meter certifying against the Continua 2014 Design Guidelines. Both the Accu‑Chek Guide and the Accu‑Chek Connect meters use Passkey pairing and both send BG/CG results under the same formats as described in the standards. The same is true for time synchronization.
