The Accu-Chek has a number of useful features. The ability to check averages for 2, 7, 14, and 30 days is especially helpful when looking for patterns in sugar level. Another plus is system operating conditions, which range up to 104 degrees. There are time when the meter must be left in the car, and it's good to know that a hot day won't affect the effectiveness of the instrument. Last, but not least, is the item's three year warrenty. The fact that Roche offers three years shows that they have confidence in their product.
