Dexcom announced that their G6 continuous glucose monitor (CGM) would be compatible with smartwatches. This was big news for the diabetes community, as it meant that people with diabetes could now discreetly see their blood sugar readings on their wrist.
At the time of the announcement, Dexcom only listed the Apple Watch as a compatible device. However, they updated their website to include the Samsung Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active as compatible devices.
This is great news for Samsung users, as there is currently no other CGM that is compatible with the Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Watch Active. The Dexcom G6 is also now the only CGM that is FDA-approved to be used without fingersticks for calibration or confirmation of sensor accuracy.
Compatibility of Dexcom G6 with Selected Smartwatches
The watch that is compatible is the Apple Watch Series 4 and later, as well as the Samsung Galaxy Watch and later.
The Dexcom G6 offers great features such as automatic alerts for high and low blood sugar, which can be very helpful for people with diabetes. With the Dexcom G6, people no longer have to carry around a separate receiver to monitor their blood sugar levels.
The built-in accelerometer in the Dexcom G6 also sends information on physical activity to the watch, allowing people with diabetes to better manage their diabetes. The Dexcom G6 is also water-resistant up to 164 feet (50 meters), so it can be worn while swimming or exercising.
Dexcom G6 is a device that helps people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. It is a small, wearable device that connects to a smartwatch and sends blood sugar readings to the watch. This allows people with diabetes to see their blood sugar levels in real-time and make adjustments to their treatment plan as needed. The Dexcom G6 also includes a feature called “G6 Share” which allows users to share their blood sugar readings with up to five other people. This can be helpful for people with diabetes who need help managing their blood sugar levels or for caregivers who want to keep an eye on their loved one’s blood sugar levels.
The Dexcom G6 is a promising new technology that has the potential to revolutionize the way diabetes is managed. It is easy to use and provides real-time glucose readings, which can help people with diabetes make more informed decisions about their health. We highly recommend that anyone with diabetes consider using the Dexcom G6.
