Longtime type 1 and blogger Joanne Milo reviews the Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor receiver with new Share technology, for remote viewing of glucose data results.

REVIEWER'S BREAKDOWN:

PROs:

  • Can see and share your data on up to 5 iPhones or iPads
  • Options for Android and Windows phones to come soon, as will option for use with smart watches
  • Gives you the latest technology, as integration of the Dexcom CGM with an insulin pump gets closer

CONs:

  • Can only use with Apple phones or tablets now -- no Android platform or smart watch yet
  • No alarms on iPhone app
  • Still need to carry Dexcom G4 Share receiver
  • Cost to upgrade (if you purchased the Dexcom G4 after 1/1/2015, the upgrade is free; if purchased in 2014, $199; if out of warranty, same price as new receiver)
