Hey All -
I'm sure someone has posted pictures/information about the new Ping Remote that was recently released in Canada, and should be coming soon to the US, but I thought that I would upload a couple of pictures. I tried to get a few comparison shots in so that you could see the few external changes that were made as most of the changes were done internally.
I received the remote this morning from Animas Canada and I must say that I'm happy to say they've fixed some of the items that I was initially concerned with:
- The screen is now the same type as what is used in the Pump itself, and is in 4 Colours. Much easier to read, and so much better to look at.
- I actually find the new remote to be a fair amount quicker than the old one. From startup time, to just scrolling around the menu's the unit is peppier.
- The scrolling for adjusting your bolus no longer flies wildly out of control when you hold the button down! A huge improvement. This allows you to hit your target bolus much more easily.
The meter in the case provided by Animas, along with my Accucheck Multiclix.
Side by side comparison. (Left is the new one, Right is the old one)
On the bottom of the remote they've removed the docking port.
Nothing major different on the left and right sides. They've removed the indentations which might have been used in the past for a belt clip of sorts.
In the end they are the same housing with a new screen, and I'm assuming a better chip that allows it to function better. Overall its the same size.
