DexCom has announced that its G7 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System now connects directly to Apple Watch in the United States. Dexcom G7 is the first and only CGM to provide direct to Apple Watch real-time glucose readings without requiring an iPhone present.

Using its own dedicated Bluetooth connection, Dexcom G7 sends glucose information and personalized alerts right to a user's Apple Watch, allowing them to go for a run, enjoy a dinner out, and feel confident leaving their iPhone behind.† Dexcom G7 is the only CGM system that can display glucose on multiple devices simultaneously and independently, including on a smartphone, smart watch, receiver or connected automated insulin delivery system.

"At Dexcom, our users are at the heart of everything we do. Direct to Apple Watch has been one of our most requested features and we're thrilled to roll it out to Dexcom G7 users in the U.S. and around the world," said Jake Leach, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Dexcom. "We've long believed that people with diabetes should be able to view their CGM data where and how they choose. Direct to Apple Watch is a testament to that, allowing people with diabetes flexibility and choice in how they manage their health."
