This month has been full of diabetes tech news as many manufacturers revealed product updates and research at the ADA 2019 Conference in San Francisco. For a great summary article from Diabetes Mine, check this out.
At the conference, Dexcom highlighted their upcoming next-gen G7 updates. Being developed with Verily, the next-gen G7 product will:
Have a faster warm-up time than the current G6 startup window
Include extended wear time of 14-15 days
Offer a fully-disposable, all-in-one sensor-transmitter with a smaller on-body footprint
Provide a dramatic cost reduction and more accuracy and reliability
Allow direct Bluetooth-to-smartphone communication
Dexcom's slating this for later 2020 with a limited launch at first, and then rolling it out more broadly across the U.S. and internationally in 2021.
