  2. From the Settings app, tap Bluetooth
  3. Under "My Devices", tap on ​the ​​ icon next to the Glucometer. Its name should be similar to Connex and then a sequence of numbers. (If you don't see the Glucometer in the Bluetooth device list, you can skip this section
  4. On the Glucometer monitor details screen, tap on Forget This Device and confirm by tapping Forget Device again on the button that pops from the bottom of the screen.
