Approved by U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WaveSense Jazz™ is one of its kind blood glucose monitoring system. In addition to amazing user-friendly features like unit safety locks, 7-user settable alarms and a large, backlit screen, WaveSense Jazz™ requires no coding and can even measure our glycemic variability. Another superlative feature of this handheld monitor is that it requires only 0.5 µL of blood and generates the result in 4 seconds. With a capacity to store 1,865 tests, WaveSense Jazz™ is indeed the best blood glucose meter.
