To my iPhone loving friends out there who also monitor their blood sugar levels at home or on the go, I have recently found a glucose monitoring system that I love and believe you too will love it if you enjoy using your iPhone.
Before I tell you why I love the Dario glucose monitor, I would like to first briefly introduce Dario in case you have never heard off it.
Dario is a personalized, pocket-sized, all-in-one glucose meter coupled with a robust real time mobile app to manage diabetes quickly, efficiently and accurately. Dario glucose meter uses the Dario test strips to quantitatively measure your blood glucose (sugar) levels in fresh capillary whole blood samples drawn from the fingertip.
Loving it like my iPhone
Having a Dario glucose monitor almost feels like having an iPhone. Dario packaging seems to have been designed with an iPhone in mind. Smart Move Dario!
Packaging is not typically the first thing we think of when we think about a glucose monitoring system. However, when it comes to Dario, packaging is the first thing to catch your eyes.
The packaging looks great. Whether it’s for the test strips or meter, the packaging features a nice, simple, and sleek design. The Dario test strips box is not your typical test strip box, where you see a small box 1.5″ x 2″ x 3″ loaded with information and footprints. Instead you see a nice, clean white box 3″ x 1″ x 4″ with the title and image featured on the front. You will find the important footprint and product info on the backs and sides of the box – just like an iPhone.
This iPhone-esque experience continues as you remove the seal on the Dario meter packaging for the first time and reveal what’s inside the box. The inner box slides out and opens up into 2 compartments in which you will find the package content. The package content is neatly featured into a small box of 4.5″ x 2″ x 7″ dimensions and is straightforward to use.

Every part of the packaging is designed to be simple and direct.
Dario’s iPhone-esque experience communicates a familiar feeling. The same feeling you get when you received your iPhone for the first time. The same simple impression – power me up and you should be set to start using me in a matter of seconds. No setups or complicated procedures. Just turn me on and start testing.
The package of Dario is easy for customers to open, easy for them to identify the component parts, and easy for them to start using. It has a customer-centric design.
Dario has designed the most clever glucose monitoring system by paying a lot of attention to small details that most manufacturers of glucose monitors would simply overlook. Those are the same kinds of details that made Apple the world’s biggest cell-phone maker.
It’s not just about the design
Everything we have discussed here involves Dario’s visual appearance and usability. Make sure to research the meter and its test strips and read reviews from several other sources before making a decision about whether or not Dario is the right glucose monitoring system for you.
