Garmin smartwatch now enables people with diabetes to view their Dexcom G6 and Dexcom G7 CGM data.
Dexcom G6 and Dexcom G7 CGM users around the world can see glucose levels and trends at a glance, even while working out.
OLATHE, Kan./April 27, 2023 – Garmin (NYSE: GRMN) today announced expanded region availability of the Dexcom Connect IQ apps, providing people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes who use a Dexcom G6 or Dexcom G7 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System with a way to quickly see their glucose levels and trends – even while working out – right on their compatible Garmin smartwatch or cycling computer. The apps can be downloaded now from the Connect IQ™ store.
The Dexcom Connect IQ apps, developed by Garmin, make it easy for people with diabetes to keep an eye on their glucose numbers at any time.
During the Day
Available for a wide range of Garmin smartwatches, the Dexcom Connect IQ app provides people with diabetes with a secondary way to view their glucose levels, right from their wrist. With their smartphone stowed away, the app allows people with diabetes to see glucose levels and trends to get a clearer picture of where their numbers are heading, as well as a 3-hour history of glucose levels to look back on.
During an Activity
While out for a run, bike ride, or other adventure, the Dexcom Connect IQ data field provides people with diabetes with a secondary way to view both their glucose levels and performance stats all in one place, so they can focus more on their workout. When training or racing with a compatible smartwatch or Edge® cycling computer, users can keep an eye on their glucose levels and trends, as well as their performance data, right on their Garmin device without pulling out their smartphone.
The Dexcom Connect IQ apps are available for download from the Connect IQ Store now.
Connect IQ is the app platform for Garmin wearables, bike computers, and outdoor handhelds, allowing developers to create on-device solutions and applications for millions of Garmin customers around the world. Using the Connect IQ SDK, developers can upload their creations to the Connect IQ store alongside thousands of apps.
