App User Guide
Health2Sync application (App) aims to assist you in tracking and managing blood glucose; it does not provide any diagnosis or treatment recommendations. You must consult your doctor and let him or her decide whether to change your treatment method or medication.
The Health2Sync Mobile App now supports the downloading of the data from a blood glucose meter using a transmission cable. However, you need to have a Health2Sync Smart Cable in order to use this function. Before using the Health2Sync Smart Cable, please carefully read the User Guide included in the smart cable packaging. You are still required to carry out the blood glucose measurement according to the blood glucose meter's user guide.
Before purchasing a Health2Sync Smart Cable, please make sure your blood glucose meter is compatible with the smart cable. You may visit our website (https://www.health2sync.com/compatibility) or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation. When measuring blood glucose, do not connect the smart cable to your blood glucose meter (some blood glucose meters are unable to take measurements when connected to a transmission cable).
iOS 7.0 and above, Android 4.0 and above.
