How do I change the date and time on my Bayer Contour, Contour XT, Contour NEXT EZ or Contour NEXT ONE meter?

The time is now...

Or is it? Having the wrong time or date on your Bayer Contour, Contour XT or Contour NEXT EZ meter can cause issues when trying to sync with Glooko. By following a few easy steps, you can make sure your data is there when you expect it to be.

In order to change the date and time on your Bayer Contour, Contour XT, or Contour NEXT EZ meter, simply follow the below instructions.

Step 1) Turn the meter on in Settings mode

Make sure the meter is OFF. Press and hold the M button for 3 seconds. A complete display will briefly appear, then numbers will flash in the top left corner of the display.

NOTE: Depending upon the Contour meter that you own, the order in which these settings appear may differ.

Furthermore, this is a cyclical process, so you must click through all previous settings to get to the specific setting you are trying to adjust. For example if you only wanted to change your time after setting the date, you must click through the settings, turn off your meter, and hold M again for three seconds to re-enter the settings.

Step 2) Set the Time

With the 12H flashing on the display, press ▲ or ▼ to select the 12H (with AM and PM) or 24H setting (military time).

Press M to set. The number in the hour position will now flash. Press ▲ or ▼until you reach the current hour.

Press M to set. The minute will now flash.

Press ▲ or ▼ to select the current minute. Press M to set. If you selected a 12 hour time setting, the AM or PM will now flash. Press ▲ or ▼ to Select AM or PM.

Press M to set.


Step 3) Set the Month and Day Format

m/d will now flash on the display. Press ▲ or ▼ to select the format you wish (m/d for month/day format or d.m for day.month format)

Press M to set.

Setting the Date:

The year will be flashing. Press ▲ or ▼ to select the current year.

Press M to set.

The month will now flash. Press ▲ or ▼ to select the month.

Press M to set. The day will now flash. Press▲ or ▼ to select the day.

Press M to set.

The meter will now proceed through sound and basic/advanced mode setup. Press M repeatedly to skip through these screens and complete time/date setup.
