Abbott's FreeStyle Lite glucometer

This glucose meter is a new member of the big Freestyle family, which members are often called as "no pain glucometer". The model supports No coding technology, making testing quicker and simpler. Freestyle Lite glucometer has larger, more contrasted display with backlight and a test strip port light for on-the-go testing - even in low light. The meter is so small that easily fits in the purse.
