DexCom, the global leader in real-time continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes, announced today that the Dexcom G7 Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System now connects directly to Apple Watch in the United States. Dexcom G7 is the first and only CGM available with Direct to Apple Watch, offering users the freedom and convenience of real-time glucose readings on their wrist even when their iPhone isn’t with them.

“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.”

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.

In addition to the benefits of using Direct to Apple Watch with Dexcom G7, people with diabetes can track other key health metrics that can impact glucose levels using Apple’s Activity, Cycle Tracking, Sleep, and other health features on Apple Watch, iPhone and iPad. All of this data is stored securely in the Health app, where it can be viewed alongside Dexcom G7 data users choose to store in the Health app so all of their diabetes health information is accessible in one place. Apple products are built with strong privacy protections and users have control over their data in the Health app.
