DarioHealth USB Type C Connector for the European Android Market Is CE Marked
DarioHealth offers USB-C connector configuration between Android smart mobile devices and the Dario Blood Glucose Meter
New York, NY and CAESAREA, Israel – July 25, 2019 – Global digital therapeutics innovator DarioHealth Corp. (Nasdaq: DRIO), today announced that its CE certificate covers a USB-C connector enabled version of the acclaimed Dario™ Blood Glucose Monitoring System. The USB-C connector is used to transfer power and communication signals between Android smart mobile devices and the Dario meter, and ensures that consumers, beginning with the Europe market region, will receive the same quality user experience with DarioHealth on the latest Android smart phone devices.
Android smart mobile device manufacturers differentiate lines of products across their markets aimed at different user populations, with varying product specifications and product price points. The USB-C connector standard is gradually gaining market share over its main predecessor, the micro-USB, in smart mobile devices. By focusing on high-end Android devices, Dario aims to extend its footprint and have the widest market reach. The Dario Blood Glucose Monitoring System is currently used with the Samsung Galaxy and LG family smart mobile Android devices.
Erez Raphael, Chairman and CEO of DarioHealth, commented, “Dario is always looking to stay ahead of the curve and meet the latest technological developments in the market head on. Current mobile technology is rapidly embracing the USB-C standard and we have been working tirelessly to bring a solution that accommodates this protocol. We are proud that our organization has worked with speed and agility to ensure connectivity to the latest Android devices. This significant milestone will allow us to open a whole new market segment and re-engage with former-Dario users who now have the newest Android devices. This is a big breakthrough for us in the European market as an estimated 60 million people have diabetes in Europe. Now more consumers in Europe can benefit from the Dario digital therapeutics solution through their smartphone.”
