Using the Verio test strips, the VerioIQ is a white meter with a color LCD screen. It has a strip port light and automatic backlight for testing in the dark. There are 4 buttons on its face for scrolling and navigating through the software. It includes a rechargeable battery that can be charged through an AC adaptor or a mini USB cable (both provided).

Animas Vibe

Animas Vibe Pump in Green

The Animas Vibe is an insulin pump with a built in Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitor. Although there is a pump-only version of the Vibe available, the combination of the pump and monitor are what makes the Vibe stand out. The Vibe, alone, is basically the Animas 2020 pump platform from a few years ago.

The Vibe has been available in the UK since 2011. Johnson & Johnson finally submitted the Animas Vibe to the FDA in April of 2013.
