Here is how to make a holder for a BG meter for exercise and athletics.
Every BG meter comes with a holder inside the zippered container that they include. Remove that holder with a stitch remover.
Sew the BG meter onto a sweat band. You want to get one of the longer sweatbands so it will fit.
If you are skilled, you can put the stitches right back in the same holes that they originally used.
One Important Item to Note:
Don’t use regular sewing thread. It may not be strong enough. I use braided fishing line. Make sure to get braided. Braided fishing line of sufficient strength will make it unbreakable. I use 40 pound test.
I added an elastic band to hold the meter more securely. While the holder they give you is designed to hold the meter securely inside the container for walking around and stuff, it isn’t designed for running. So a little extra security is a good idea.
Put the elastic band on the end so that it doesn’t cover the BG number when it is displayed! The meter can still be removed easily if you want.
That’s all it takes. Pretty easy!
I have two different meter types I use for exercise. I am going to do a comparison and recommendation soon.
