How do I set up my Keto-Mojo meter?

  • Last updated November 16, 2017

The best way to learn how to set up and use your Keto-Mojo meter is to watch our videos here.

But if you rather continue reading on, you’ll first need to identify which meter you own. If you have the TD-4279 meter, you will see that model number printed on the front of your meter towards the bottom left.  If there is no model number printed on the front, you have the Bluetooth meter.

You can also read the following to get started if you do not want to watch the video:

Setting up the Bluetooth Meter  

To set up your meter, you’ll need to access the orange button located on the back of the meter, inside the area where the batteries are located. Your Keto-Mojo meter comes with batteries already installed, so all you need to do to get started is open the back and follow the directions below.

NOTE: The date and time is preset for east coast time, but it is VERY important that you check your settings to make sure they are set correctly for your location.

Follow the instructions below.

  1. Start with the meter off (with no test strip inserted). Open the back of the meter where the batteries are located. Turn on the meter by pressing the small orange button, which is located next to the batteries. (We call this the “S” button.)
  2. Set the date; it’s critical that your meter is set to the correct date.  If your meter is not in the current year, you will receive errors and waste test strips.
    • You will see the YEAR flashing first. To advance the year, press M (the large button on the front) until the correct year appears.  If you go past the current year, advance the meter past 2050, then it will start over at 2005.  Once you find the correct year, press S to set the year.
    • Next, MONTH will be flashing. To advance the month, press M until the correct month appears.  Press S to set the month.
    • Now, DAY is flashing.  To advance the Day press M to the correct day, then press S to set the day.
  3. Set the time format: You have two options for time format – 12h or 24h.  Press M to select your desired time format, then press S to set it.
  4. Set the time:  With the HOUR / MINUTE flashing in sequence, press M until the correct hour/minutes appear.  Press S to set each one.
  5. Set the unit of measurement for glucose: Press M to switch between mg/dL or mmol/L;  then press S.  The standard in the U.S. and Germany is mg/dL and the standard in all other countries is mmol/L. This setting does not affect your ketone unit of measurement which will always be mmol/L.
  6. Set the buzzer: The buzzer alerts you that you’ve filled the strip channel with enough blood for the meter to conduct the test; its activation is optional.  Press M to switch between “On” and “Off,” then press S to set it.
  7. Delete the memory:   When you receive your new meter, it will not have any memory/records of your testing to delete. So, when  “DEL” appears on the display, press M and select “No,” then Press S to advance to the next setting. Should you ever want to delete all your meter results, press M and select “yes.” Note: each meter holds 1,000 readings.
  8. Set the reminder alarm:  Your meter has four reminder alarms so you can set reminders for yourself four times per day. When programming a new meter, the reminder alarm will display “OFF” and “AL1.” If you don’t want to set an alarm, press S to scroll past each one;  If you do want to set alarms, press M to select “On,” then press S.  With the hour/minute flashing in sequence, press M to select the desired hour/minute you want the alarm to sound, then press S to set it and go to the next alarm setting. Note: once the alarm is set, it will beep when it goes off for 2 minutes unless you press M, which will switch it off.
  9. Set the auto-send: (For Keto-Mojo APP) Press M to select the auto-send (or auto-sync) (“AS”) “On” or “OFF”. Press S to set. With AS on, your meter’s Bluetooth will automatically turn on after testing.  You will still need to go to the app and press Sync.
  10. Set the backlight: The default setting for the meter backlight (“BL”) is set to On. If you want to set it to off, press M to select “Off,” then press S.

Changing any of these setting requires the meter to be in the setting mode (activated by hitting the orange “S button”); if the meter is idle for 3 minutes while in the setting mode, it will switch off.

You can WATCH a quick video on setting up your Bluetooth meter here.

After setting up your meter, you’ll want to learn more about coding your ketone testing strips to your meter before using your strips. You can find out all about coding right here or here.

Setting up the TD-4279 Meter  

The set-up for the TD-4279 is exactly the same as the Bluetooth meter with the exception of step 9 above.  To start, You’ll want to access the orange button located on the back of the meter, inside the area where the batteries are located. Your Keto-Mojo meter comes with batteries already installed, so all you need to do is open the back and follow the directions below.

NOTE: The date and time is preset for east coast time, but it is VERY important that you check your settings to make sure they are set correctly for your location.

Follow the instructions below.

In the directions below, the “S button,” is the small orange button located right next to the batteries on the back of the meter.  You will use this button to navigate through each setting and to set what is on the meter’s screen display and advance to the next setting.

The large “M Button,” located on the front of the meter just below the screen, will allow you to scroll through the options for each of the steps/settings below.

  1. Start with the meter off (with no test strip inserted). Open the back of the meter where the batteries are located. Turn on the meter by pressing the small orange button, which is located next to the batteries. (We call this the “S” button.)

  7. Delete the memory:   When you receive your new meter, it will not have any memory/records of your testing to delete. So, when  “dEL” appears on the display, press M and select “No,” then Press S to advance to the next setting. Should you ever want to delete all your meter results, press M and select “yes.” Note: each meter holds 1,000 readings.
