Nov 20, 2017
CAESAREA, Israel, Nov. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO), a leading global digital health company with mobile health and big data solutions, today announced the availability of update version 3.5 of its MyDario app. The app update includes support for DarioHealth's new Lightning compatible device for iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 which was recently awarded the CE Mark.
The DarioHealth lightning adapter is currently under consideration for regulatory approval with the United States Food and Drug Administration and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia.
The 3.5 version update ensures that users will be able to receive the same quality user experience with DarioHealth on the latest Apple devices, including the brand-new iPhone 8.
Erez Raphael, Chairman and CEO of DarioHealth, commented, "From a software perspective, we continue to stay ahead of the technological change curve with behind-the-scene adjustments that pave the way for consumers with iPhone 7 and 8. On the product marketing side, we've worked with our customers to understand their needs, and it is very gratifying to launch a version that introduces several new features which continue to simplify diabetes management."
Amongst the new features that are being rolled out with version 3.5 are a weight log and a barcode scanner. The weight log seamlessly integrates with Dario's intuitive logbook and charts. Now customers have one place where they can see their diabetes snapshot and track their weight.
In addition, customers can now scan foods with the barcode scanner feature in the all-in-one smart diabetes system. This permits easier carb counting, as customers simply point their smartphone at a barcode and the app imports the nutritional information for the particular food. DarioHealth believes this feature will increase customer engagement, and help customers keep better track of their carbohydrate intake.
