November 13, 2015 Uncategorized Trying out a Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitor today! Inserting the sensor under my skin was pretty painless, now I have to wait two hours for it to calibrate. Hopefully it works! This Post Has 5 Comments Ina Heiman 13 Nov 2015 That's neat. Hope it works and helps you keep on track. Love you james wolf 13 Nov 2015 I am looking to get one next month, and I was wondering why the screen isnt just your phone? What does the device do that your phone couldn't? Sam Steele 13 Nov 2015 +james wolf their software only works with iOS, so I have to use the reciever device until they release an Android version james wolf 14 Nov 2015 It just uses Bluetooth to communicate though right? Sam Steele 14 Nov 2015 Yes, the new model that I have uses Bluetooth LE for communication. The previous versions used a proprietary RF system. I have it paired with an iPod Touch in addition to the standalone receiver so I can try out the app too. Comments are closed.
