How do I upload my Bayer USB meter on the Glooko® app for Android?

We're glad you asked!

This is a step-by-step guide for uploading data from your Bayer Contour Next Link, Contour Next USB or Contour USB meter using the Glooko mobile app for Android.

NOTE: These meters are not compatible with the Glooko mobile app for iOS.

What do you need?

  • Glooko Mobile app for Android

  • Your Bayer Contour Next Link, Contour Next USB, or Contour USB meter

  • A Micro-to-Female USB OTG cable or a 30 Pin-to-Female USB OTG cable​

    • We recommend you obtain the cable from Glooko directly at to ensure that it will upload successfully.

Let's learn how to upload your data:

Navigate to the Sync Menu in one of two ways:

  1. From the Home screen, tap Sync in the top-right corner to access your Sync Menu.
  2. From the Primary Navigation Bar at the bottom of any screen, tap Profile Devices My Devices.

If your blood glucose meter is listed, tap on the Meter Name.

  • If it is not listed, tap Add Device. On the next screen, tap Meters, select your device from the list, then tap Done.
  • Your device will now be listed on the Sync Menu. Tap on the Meter Name.

Proceed through the on-screen instructions to connect the USB OTG cable and upload your device.

  • You can disable the on-screen instructions by checking the box next to Don’t show me this again.
  • If prompted to Allow the app Glooko to access the USB Device?, tap OK.
  • NOTE: Your Android device may detect your device as a "USB Mass StorageDevice" once connected. This may prompt your Android device to automatically "open" your device to view the files stored in it. If this happens, simply navigate back to the Glooko app to proceed.

Once you have followed all of on-screen instructions, tap Next to initialize the sync.
