By the way, my meter is branded "Freestyle Freedom Lite" (additional word "Freedom" on packaging). I do not know if that means it is a different model to the "Freestyle Lite". I will find out and get Product Review to create a new entry if it is.

Best metre I have used....

published

This meter may not be as fancy as others...but it suits me perfectly...small...compact packaging....easy to use and handle test strips....long battery life...I test a few times a day...
The only thing I do not like ...hence only 4 stars...is the lancing device....I replaced it with my Accu-Chek Soft Clix pen from my old Performa....I purchase this because of the TV recommendation from Rob Palmer....It is still my favorite even though I was given one from another company free.

Purchased for A$35.00.

Poor accuracy

published

I have 4 of these machines. Using the same batch of test strips all within seconds of each other all of them give a different reading! You can have no faith in this machine to give a consistent reading.

Good BGL Meter

published

I really like my Freestyle Lite. Its small and the package is compact, but I absolutely hate the lancet gadget, so I am using my old softclix from Accuchek. (I had previously used a Performa and a Go, neither of which seemed particularly accurate.). I had bought it from the local chemist, and then when I registered with Abbott Diabetes care, I bought the special cable to connect it to the computer and oh dear, at the time, no Mac software (there is, now, but I don't require it anymore, since using Glooko on my iPhone). There are times I wonder about the accuracy, but when I get my HbA1c done, I find that my expectations, based on my meter readings, are pretty much on target.

Its possible to obtain a meter for free, now, from Abbott.

After writing this, I have also acquired free meters from Accuchek and another from Abbott. I'll review them later when I have used them as extensively as the Lite

Abbot Freestyle Lite glucometer

I have found that this meter gives very low results compared to those of my health fund laboratory.. To be fair it gives the "in range" values when tested by the standard test solutions supplied free of charge by Abbot . I have since purchased another meter,the Freestyle Optium and am very satisfied with its performance. The results are in good agreement with the health funds results. I have tested at the same time a drop of blood using both meters, the Freestyle lite generally gives results 25% lower than the Freestyle Optium.

it may be precise but its not accurate.

Price is great and readings have been accurate

published

I have been using the FreeStyle lite Meter For several months and can't be happier. I have tried a few other big brand meters but so far this is the best of the them. I purchased the meter from www.discountdiabetes.org and their prices were the lowest compared to the other big online companies.
Accurate readings, and the price.

Has some faults

published

It was well priced and worked well, however I live in rural Victoria which is hot. I accidentally left it in the car and now I always get the same reading so need to purchase another. It is not as sturdy as the more expensive machines. For its price it worked well but if you have type one I would buy one of Freestyle's upper market products.
Worked well before overheating. Easy to use and read.
Overheated in the car and resetting didnt fix the issue
