Health watch by Casio.

After your editor's eight-year-old grandson learned earlier this year that he had diabetes, Andy quickly learned to do his own finger pricks and test his blood sugar level, thanks to a simple-to-use electronic device. He has also learned how to draw up his insulin and administer it.

Nevertheless, the hardest thing is keeping track of the five important times during the day when he must have snacks or meals, test his blood sugar, and take insulin. His father, an emergency medicine specialist, knew that the Casio company made watches with many different features, so he looked for one with multiple alarms. However, it also had to be one that Andy could wear all the time, including during swim meets and soccer games.

Casio's Tri-Graph model no. TGW10G1V is a great holiday gift for your young diabetic; at less than $40, it's also a real bargain.
