Hi, thanks for allowing me into your group. My daughter who turns 7 last month was diagnosed a week ago with T1–as you all know it’s been a tough week. I got her the DG6 and an iPhone (she was quite pleased that) and while we are having issues with accuracy, my main issue is the proximity required with her phone. It seems to be less than most consumer Bluetooth devices and I’m quite keen to get her an Apple Watch with the direct connection.
Two questions for you all.
in current state does the Apple Watch extend range allowing further proximity from the phone (I assume no). Meaning, does the Watch’s tether to the phone which is far more reliable and longer in range do anything for the Dex?
Any update or idea on when the direct to Apple Watch will release? Seems like it is delayed so I assume imminent but I’m not yet familiar with Dexcom release cycles.
Thanks so much, certain to have lots more questions, we are in an intense “figuring it out” phase.
