Hi, new to this forum, but with an 11 years old diagnosed with T1 almost 10 years ago. We have used Medtronic 640G with CGM, but we now give up Medtronic CGM in favour of G6, for multiple reasons.
- primarily the “Follow” functionality
- the precision of G6
- avoid min 2-3 daily calibrations.
(I know we loose the closed loop functionality, and we will upgrade to the tslim-pump as soon as it is made available to us)
My son has an Android phone, and the plan is to use this phone as receiver for G6 data, and activate Follow-functionality.
- can he use an Apple Watch v5 (with eSIM) but without a dedicated iphone? I do not expect the watch to function as a Dexcom receiver, but I want him to be able to read his BS values on his wrist, using the Follow app installed on the watch. Will this work or does the Follow app need to be continuously paired with an iphone?
- The Follow app has received plenty of negative reviews on App Store. Is it working properly now?
Any help or feedback greatly appreciated!
